As someone who has seen Mastodon live 3 times i will say they are great live when Brent Hinds isnt drunk. The only thing thats bad about Mastodon's live show is their stage presence which they have none of.
I would disagree with this to a degree. They don't have a frontman who is vocals only bouncing around the stage doing cartwheels like Converge, but I would still say they have some stage presence.

Brann is pretty stoic, but in my mind a drummer who is as skilled as he is comes off as even better when he makes it look like it ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby. I enjoy watching these cats live - I think their stage presence is way better than many lame acts I've seen (and I've seen a bunch!).

bt11763 is the only one who said that - I don't think it and I doubt anybody else who has posted does, either. Consider the source - he's a n00b, and probably pretty young since he doesn't even post his age. Ignore.
