Mastodon: The Workhorse Chronicles (DVD)

The first official video from Mastodon is quite the packed collection of live footage, interview clips, band history, and videos. Now that the band has signed with a major label, it's only fitting that Relapse Records release this set to chronicle the first era of the band before they moved on to Warner Brothers. The live footage is especially valuable here, and although not one long, professionally shot gig as some would have wanted to see, it instead is culled from many live shows over the years, most shot from the audience, but does show the power of the band in a live setting through the years from humble beginnings to much larger venues. The interviews are where you really learn about the history of the band and get to know each member, and it's interesting to see how they morphed from hardcore & punk beginnings to a more technical progressive metal sound as they put together albums like Remission and Leviathan.

The three videos included here are a load of fun, especially "Blood & Thunder" complete with a slew of crazy clowns, ironically most were played by friends of the band. If you have been watching MTV's Hadbanger's Ball over the last few years since it came back on the air, you will no douby have caught this clip, "March of the Fire Ants", or "Iron Tusk", as the show ran them pretty regularly.

So, as the next era in the career of Mastodon begins, pick up a copy of The Workhorse Chronicles and see how everything led up to this point.
