Cell structure eats away at a massive swell
Seems however I'm a victim of circumstance
Hunt for ogres and dwarves

  • "Colony of Birchmen is Mastodon's most popular song" ...uwot m8
  • damn early mastodon was so good
  • This song is 4:20 long for a reason.
  • The solo is outstanding.
  • Smells like QoTSA because Josh Homme, the lead singer/guitarist of that band is a guest artist on this track.
  • What's so bad about Mudvayne? They aren't Mastodon.
  • smells a lot like Qotsa
