these sets are awful. Clean Opeth is cool and all, but Grand Conjuration is the worst song they've ever written, by far, and Deliverance, as much as I love that song, is WAY too overplayed to be one of TWO heavy songs they play.
That's about as disappointing of a Mastodon set as I could have seen. I'm honestly not a big fan of the Hunter. I'm not really sure how well it'll transfer live. And to play nothing from Remission is ridiculous. I understand not wanting to play March anymore, but PLAY SOMETHING ELSE. Crusher Destroyer? Mother Puncher? C'mon. 2 songs from Leviathan is also absolutely unacceptable. The last time I saw them was on the Crack the Sky tour. The only song I've heard them play from that record for the last 2 shows is Aqua Dementia. I love Aqua Dementia, but for FUCK'S SAKE, give me SOMETHING that isn't that or Blood and Thunder. This is just getting ridiculous...
I remember seeing them on the Blood Mountain tour and they played Hearts Alive. No one will probably every hear that song live again, unless, somewhere down the road, they decide to do a Leviathan anniversary tour and play the whole album.
