And that wouldn't be all that bad (there are tons of bands I love whose lyrics aren't very good) if the music itself wasn't so mundane. It's not that they aren't heavy enough or anything. The songwriting is just not good.
The lyrics really are the number one thing wrong with this band. I feel like he thinks he's a rebellious 8th grader still. As Wolverine said, he tries to be like Anselmo with the tough guy lyrics but he just comes off as juvenile and/or cheesy.

Eh, whenever I've seen them they've been good and bring other bands I like, so I'm ok with it

Mastodon just posted on Facebook that they are writing and recording a song for the new Monsters Inc. movie. Perhaps that is all they are entering the studio for?

In a interview released last week Hinds said they were entering the studio in January.

Really? hahaha

If the Slayer/ Anthrax tour was real wouldn't Anthrax headline? They usually play bigger venues.

No way. They just headlined the second stage at the Mayhem where Slayer co-headlined.

Yeah but didn't Slayer's last show was American Carnage at HOB as oppose to Anthrax nearly selling out Congress Theater and the Vic within a few months of each other.

They chose to do that though, they were offered main stage.

In 2010 I saw Slayer headline a tour over Megadeth where Anthrax opened every show. Sort of like a Big 4 tour without Metallica. I prefer Anthrax but no way will they ever headline over Slayer.
