MASTODON Posts Performance Clip Of “Black Tongue” From “Live At Brixton” DVD

Thursday, 5th December 2013

Georgia metallers MASTODON have posted a clip of “Black Tongue,” culled from their Live at Brixton DVD. The show took place on February 11, 2012, and was their first show at the legendary venue. It won’t be their last, as the London audience positively erupted from the opening chords until the final, frenzied encore.

In addition to performing “Curl of the Burl,” “Black Tongue” and “Dry Bone Valley” from The Hunter, the band dug into their catalog, unearthing such scorching tracks as “Colony of Birchmen,” “Capillarian Crest” and “Iron Tusk.” Rolling Stone magazine referred to the band’s sonic attack as one that: “Demonstrates how contemporary hard rock can still be made with imagination, precision and a majestic sense of force.”

Now this extraordinary live show is being released digitally by Warner Bros. Records as Mastodon Live At Brixton on December 10. An audio-only version and a live video version directed by Ryan Mackfall (Crashburn Media) (both featuring the full 97-minute performance) will be available from all digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.

1. Dry Bone Valley
2. Black Tongue
