Yo, Mastodon fans, we’ve got some exclusive intel on the seven tracks that the mighty Mastodon has never performed live! And trust us, these seven songs are so epic, they’d be a crime not to hear live! So, without further ado, let’s dive right in!
First up, we’ve got “Hunters of the Sky” from the legendary Blood Mountain (2006). Although the rest of the album has rocked the stage (more recently), “Hunters of the Sky” remains a hidden gem. With a mid-paced old-school vibe and crushing riffs, this track is screaming for some live love.
Next on the list is “Deathbound” from The Hunter (2011). Originally written during the Crack the Skye sessions, “Deathbound” is a short yet explosive track that’ll make you want to mosh like there’s no tomorrow. And with Mastodon’s penchant for shorter songs, we might just hear this one on stage soon.
Moving on, we have “Word to the Wise” from Emperor of Sand (2017). This catchy, sing-along tune is the perfect addition to Mastodon’s setlist. Its upbeat tempo, groovy rhythm, and infectious chorus are sure to get the crowd pumped.
And let’s not forget about “Jaguar God” from Emperor of Sand (2017). Clocking in at almost eight minutes, this emotional masterpiece might be a tough one to squeeze into a setlist, but with guest guitarist Mike Keneally joining them on stage, this epic track would bring the house down. It’s a perfect album closer that’ll leave you begging for more.
Up next is “North Side Star” from Cold Dark Place (2017). Although the EP’s “Toe to Toes” has made it to the stage, “North Side Star” has been overlooked for far too long. With its infectious groove and heavy riffs, this track deserves a spot in Mastodon’s setlist ASAP.
And then, there’s “The Beast” from Hushed & Grim (2021). This slow-burning track is a true masterpiece that builds up to an explosive climax, making it the perfect addition to a setlist featuring Mastodon’s slower material. We’re ready to hear this beastly track live!
Last but not least, we have “Savage Lands” from Hushed & Grim (2021). With its pounding drums, galloping verses, and epic guitar solo, this track is an all-out assault on your senses. It’s time to make this song a part of Mastodon’s live repertoire!
So, there you have it, folks! The seven Mastodon tracks that have yet to grace the stage. We can only hope that Mastodon hears our plea and adds these gems to their live sets ASAP!
