    "You can run to the sea, you can run to the forest" part and the subsequent heavy-as-fk riff are pure gold.

    I'm exhausted but still can't stop listening to this and Curl of the Burl. This is starting to get serious.

    This sounds so much better when your high. On a side note... I would like a more prominent bassline in this song.

    Mike Elizondo worked with Mastodon on 'The Hunter' and with Avenged Sevenfold on 'Nightmare'. That's where the 'Nightmare' (song) hint comes from.

    If Mastodon is "Pop Metal", then I enjoy that genre.

    who tagged this "pop metal"? :D

    @ iDeception: The way I heard it was that he burned them out, but you are correct, he did use his mothers jewelry.

    September 2011
  • Zredna77

    There is something very Ride The Lighningish about parts of this song.

    September 2011
  • iDeception

    except Oedipus didn't burn out his eyes, he stabbed them out with his mother's jewelry (from my recollection)

    September 2011
  • emptycookiejar1

    The lyrics allude to Oedipus Rex, if I'm not mistaken. Especially "I burned out my eyes/I cut out my tongue."

    as always, Brann's drumming is a huge highlight.[2] Agreed, not a dead moment.

    @imago_hun: Your comment makes no sense. It's not much more "pop" than any of those records, especially not Blood Mountain.
