An album like Remission deserves a good different review…I thought the most alienated ideas, but I came to mind of a little thing I used to make in primary school, flowing ideas, or flowing thoughts.

Ideas storm:
-Remission is an incredible album, it has all the musical twists you could ask for in a band, melodies(Ol'e Nessie, a great song with an incredibly overwhelming harmonious intro), Brutal riffs(March Of The Fire Ants, Workhorse), The most complex Drums in the genre(every single song is a good example), the most awesome guitars (with some slow yet great solos, check Trampled under Hoof).

-The drums; it's very difficult to find a good drummer within this genre, every song has great drums, an insane performance with the high drum, the toms are well executed (specially when Brann Dailor plays with those 8th's 6th's and the floor toms) the cymbals are a blast, clean as new glass, the ride is the best ever(amazingly in time with the bass and the hi-hat), and man the crash is awesome, Mastodon's chief instrument is definitely the drums.

-Every song has a little intro, (the best one is the one in Marc Of The Fire Ants), a little prelude to what the song is going to be, but I think the band made this only for execution issues, to polish the song, to demonstrate of what they are made of, to show their Skills.

-I can't talk about the best song on Remission, every song is really inconceivable, multifarious, wonderful, magnificent, superb, and every synonym you can think of, from Crusher Destroyer(a blasting brutal song, with the most aggressive and violent structures) to Elephant Man( the most calm and complex song in the album, great solos, great pulse, everything, well except that weird hidden distortion after the 7th minute), Workhorse, Trainwreck, Ol'e Nessie, March Of The Fire Ants, Trilobite, every single song is spectacular.

-Everything within this album is historical, I am sure that Mastodon is going to change the way people see metal (though I do not know if this is a good thing or a bad thing), I loved this album from the beginning to it's end, I Highly Recommend it for people who wants different types of music, extreme yet progressive, violent yet mellow, insane yet beautiful.

Actually, if someone thinks Mastodon is anything more than a generic Rock band trying to be edgy, they're a faggot.

Ha! Says someone with Amon Amarth in their favorite bands list. Also calling someone a "faggot" as an insult is really...really stupid.

I don't appreciate the context of how he's referring to Disturbed.

So do something.

So Amon Amarth makes me a fluffybunny? This is coming from the jolt cola drinker who has "Portugal. The Man" and "From Autumn To Ashes" in his list...

Please tell me you're a troll. And no, I don't think having a preference in certain bands dictates your sexual preference, I was mocking you because you're an asshole.

Why are so many people on the Internet obsessed with calling other people meat products that are made from offal?

Haha the classic Karlabos popcorn post.

In all seriousness, though, I'm fascinated by what this Internet toughguy (and possibly real life toughguy) is going to do next.

+1 for the edits. Probably even funnier than the post itself.
