Day 29, (shared) 327. position: Mastodon - Elephant Man (from the album Remission)
Mastodon did couple of songs about Joseph Merrick aka The Elephant Man. The first one is obviously todays entry, the other being Joseph Merrick (also quite obviously) on their second album Leviathan. Both are instrumentals and they are both very atmospheric and rich with melody.
Elephant Man is a good example how good songwriters Mastodon are, even as early as on their first full length. Sure they knew how to bash your head in with brutal sludge metal, but they also had ear for melodies.
