And so because I don’t already have enough books and DVDs on my to-buy list, another of my favorite bands–Atlanta, GA’s MASTODON–has decided to put out their first ever live concert DVD, coming March 15th, 2011. The main lure for me is the performance of the entire Crack the Skye (2009) album.
Details, Details: The set will contain a CD and DVD recorded and filmed live October 19th, 2009, at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. MASTODON: LIVE AT THE ARAGON DVD + CD is comprised of Crack The Skye performed live in its glorious entirety along with fan favorites from Blood Mountain (2006) and Leviathan (2004) plus a brutal cover of “The Bit” by Melvins. The DVD will also feature a 58-minute “tour film” that contains the films which were projected on screen, behind the band in performance
