Top Ten Best Mastodon SongsCaptainComedy17
The Top Ten
Where are the Emperor Of Sand songs?
This is a song that you give to anyone who asks you for an introduction to good music! Mastodon have not released a single bad album and picking this over songs like Crack the Skye and Capillarian Crest or Ancient Kingdom or Megalodon is a choice I made purely cause the opening riff is one of the most striking and powerful arpeggios you would ever hear! A 11/10 for the bands discography as a whole
This song really takes me to this other place... Amazing vibe to it. Just great! And the lyrics! I'm at a certain point in my life where I can relate to them every bit, and this song helps me cope with my reality. Mastodon you make my life worth living!
Metal sounds so great with vocals that harmonize, like they were trying to prove they could sound good but won't get off their metal high horse and stop singing like they had a tracheotomy.V 15 CommentsUListen to Sample
My favorite guitar riff of all time!
My personal top 10:
5-The Last Baron
3-March of the Fire Ants
1-Blood and Thunder
One of the songs which got me into Metal in the first place! First heard on Need for Speed, this is my all time favorite of theirs!
My favourite. Heard it first in Need For Speed
Best Mastodon song there is.V 15 CommentsUListen to Sample
Yeah, this song's pretty good. - SoulOfBlack15
Oblivion is terribly overrated...this is the song that needs to be at the top of the list not the bland Blood and Thunder which shouldn't be anywhere near the top ten region...My Top 3 would be: 1) The Czar 2) March of the Fire Ants 3) Crack the Skye.
This is the song that really got me into the band. It's legitimate heavy metal, but it's not obnoxiously loud or fast, and it sets their music apart from mainstream metal.
Incredible song and the loved the vocals and especially the solo work as well as the drumming which obviously doesn't need a mention...Brann Dalor is a beast of a drummer.. just listen to Capillarian Crest.V 9 CommentsUListen to Sample
The riff at 8:17...
All out metal, period
The thing that makes Crack The Skye so beautiful is how each song is a more and more intense experience as it goes, concluding with this masterpiece.
The first time I heard this I knew I'd heard the greatest track I'll hear in my whole life.V 10 CommentsUListen to Sample
The song defines prog metal to me and it may fall second to Blood and Thunder but it deserves to be in the top 5 - PsychoSandman33
God damn, 10th? This is EASILY the most emotional song out of Mastodon's discography, Scott Kelly's vocals are simply amazing, and it is just plain beautiful.
Most intensely emotional song I've heard by them yet. Scott Kelly's vox are so good!UListen to Sample
The surf guitar parts, banjo picking, a guitar solo, just mastodon doing what they do best. Just an awesome song!
This song is AWESOME why is it rated so low? What
Ripping track! Monster riff near the end makes me smile
This is an absolute cracker!V 4 CommentsUListen to Sample
It sounds beautiful and threatening at the same time.
This forest is growing faster than I can tell. As much as I love Leviathan, Blood Mountain is still my favorite Mastodon album. 'tis excellent. - djh101
One of the best songs I've heard them produce. The way the smokey vocals match the hypnotic riffs is a wonder.
The opening riff is so goodV 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
I feel I belong in the minority section who loved their earlier sludge metal style and raw production much more than their later polished progressive metal output..And this song exceeds the limit of badassery...loved Brian's drum fills towards the end as well as Brent's ntensifying vocals throughout the course of the song was the highlight for me... - Arhaan95
Remission is an underrated album. But that's not to say Leviathan and onward doesn't deserve the respect it has. Remission has some kick ass tracks, and this has to be one of the best. Love Mastodon.
Great riff and solo. This is one of very few songs in the WORLD that I just can't get enough of. This is an absolutely skull-crushing song.
Lol Last Baron above this master piece, sure, where are the real Mastodon fans?V 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
It's already here. - AdamDestructorJr.
One of the best songs and lyrics of this band
Has one of the best bridges to a song ever.UListen to Sample
It's just beautiful and awe inspiring. The general feeling the song possesses just captivates anyone who listens.
This. Song. If someone asks me, "What is Prog-Metal? " I play them this song. Everything from acoustic beauty, to metal chords and gong strokes in the intro, this song is brutal and perfect.
The song has the most incredible atmosphere I have ever heard. It embraces me with such madness
The riff with the delay is hypnotic.
Can't get it out of my head.
The best "headbanging" song of them.
A true mastodon fan would put this song in their top ten. "Five or higher"
Can't believe it's this low on this list.
That mindblowing solo before the crushing outro..
So hard to choose when there isn't a single Mastodon song I straight up don't like. Today I'm feeling hearts alive - BronzeWolf96
A modern medal epic that epitomizes Mastodon's awesome power and storytelling.
Mastodon's finest in the form of an epic crushing song. Simply amazing music which mirrors the ocean in its power and beauty.V 4 CommentsUListen to Sample
The Hunter may not be the most exciting Mastodon album but this is one hell of a track. - bigmike137
This song got me into Mastodon, it's the first one I ever heard and it is absolutely amazing
This song is a masterpiece and I believe it should be in the top 5.
I'm actually quite sad! This should be much higher!V 1 CommentUListen to Sample
Send this song to someone who hasn't heard the band before to give them what really sums up Mastodon. Heavy, jeering and crazy song.
Great song from the Hunter! Their new album is awesome, os is this song!
This song is about the mixing a from cuting a especial part of a tree which worth a lot of money with the consuming oh meth with the money from the curl of the burl. It's a dificult song to understand but it is awesome
Its The Cuirl Of the Burl Its the way of the World!V 1 CommentUListen to Sample
Awesome song, should be in the top 5!
I burned out my eyes, I cut out my tongue should be in the top ten better than curl of the burl
It's tough choosing the best Mastodon song, but my vote goes to this song. - 906389
Sick song! I love it!UListen to Sample
What an opener!
This song gets me so amped
The drumming, the guitars, the lyrics, EVERYTHING on this track is just perfect in the most godly ways, possibly the most intense album opening song in the history of music? I think so. Possibly the best song from their hands down best album
Such a sick opener, better opener then blood and thunderV 7 CommentsUListen to Sample
Voting for this because it's pretty underrated. The Hunter gets overlooked all the time because it's too catchy and fun for Mastodon. What's wrong with fun in metal?
This song gets very intense, very quickly. And that's why I love itUListen to Sample
Worlds best music is this...
This song makes me feel like I'm in a cloud... I absolutely love it
Absolutely beautiful song. These guys are geniusesUListen to Sample
They opened with this when they played Bristol. What an experience that was. - AdamDestructorJr.
great hard intense
Awesome song! Great drums!
This song perfectly displays Mastodon's abilities. Beautiful, thick guitar riff, amazing drums, and some of the most intense yet wonderful vocals Mastodon ever produced.
Sludgy and intense. Song that got me into the band thanks to Tony Hawk's American Wasteland on the original Xbox.V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
That opening riff is just amazing. Sets the tone for a trudging behemoth of a track. So good.
Really love the moody chorus by Brann here! And those riffs are killer!
My favourite track of OMRTS, has a really distinct opening riff and great soloing section at the end! - petrucci75hammetUListen to Sample
This and Siberian Divide are the 2 songs from Blood Mountain that are swept aside from the others. Their actually one of the most unique and beautiful mastodon songs ever written - bigmike137
How is this song so low on the list!? The intro to this song is beautiful and it's hands-down my favorite song from Blood Mountain!
This song is so orgasmic it causes me to implode with euphoria
Should be rated higher!V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
Yeah Capillarian Crest should not be this low. The crazy fast hybrid picking is awesome! Not to mention the drumming is excellent too! This songs makes you want to do some damage! Mastodon at their best and one of my favorite songs by them!
I cannot understand why this is so low. Greatest guitar work ever heard on a Mastodon song, hands down.
It's a shame... This song should be, at least, in the top 10! Amazing work on the drums for this song.
One of the best metal songs period. Perfect.V 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
Damn can't believe this song is getting no love...that chorus is just so awesome
In my opinion it's between this The Czar, Spectrelight, Bedazzled Fingernails, Where Strides the Behemoth, Sleeping Giant, Seabeast and The Wolf is Loose for best song.UListen to Sample
Another amazing song by mastodon. Top twelve for sure
Probably ranked so low because it is still new..UListen to Sample
This song is Mastodon distilled into five minutes. Heavy, atmospheric, gripping, chugging, grinding, just plain epic.
So good. Listen to this or you'll die
35?! This song is so underrated
The black sheep of crack the skye when its just as good as oblivion or divintationsUListen to Sample
Jesus this song rips my body apart
This is probably the heaviest mastodon song. - MetalmaniakkkUListen to Sample
This song should easily make it to top 10 but I wonder why it's not even in the top 35 songs that appear in this thread.
This is my favorite song on the new album.. Chill for Mastodon, but brilliant tone and substance with the guitar solos. Great for long drive playlists.UListen to Sample
Not their best but it is awesome! Lets get this near the top 15
The brilliant opener for 'Once More 'Round the Sun'
BEST MASTODON SONG, a true classic, play it 99 of the time live.. why? because its metalUListen to Sample
Deserves a rank in top 10 at least! 22nd is underrated for this song!
Fantastic song! Even 13th is too low for this oneUListen to Sample
This song should be higher
When I hear this I think in the dr octopus of spider manUListen to Sample
The album closer of their 2014 album, Once more 'Round the Sun. This song is very dark, yet epic.
One of the darkest yet most well written mastodon song and should at least be in the top five. Excellent song featuring additional vocals by Scott Kelly the frontman of heavy metal band Neurosis which gives it an even more eeire feel and sound. Let's get this to be in the top five!
Just listen to this riff! it s amazingUListen to Sample
Insane riff throughout
Seriously? This song wasn't on the list at all? What do you mean?UListen to Sample
Underrated Apparently - Gamefreak23788
What this is like the best mastodon song in my opinion.
The song is amazing, can't beat the guitars in this song!
Impossible to get that melody out of my head
Captain Ahab must have felt the same killing moby
This song is awesome - AdamDestructorJr.UListen to Sample
Really goodUListen to Sample
Never really got into their stuff until I heard this song, I love the chorus with the simultaneous sludgy vocals. I think this song is extremely underrated!
This is an amazing song!
This song got me into the band! The video is a cat getting stoned... come on guysV 1 CommentUListen to Sample
New stuff but really, really, good. The entire ‘Cold Dark Place’ EP has their best work thus far, very big step in their music. Makes me excited to hear what their next album will bring.UListen to Sample
Absolutely relaxing, as all this album, but very reflexive. Is just a bit more amazing that the other incredible songs of this band.
I'm officially convinced that no one who has voted on this list is a mastodon fan. Only their most publicized songs are in the top ten. Do yourself a favor and listen to some Mastodon, starting with this song. If you don't eargasm, you're beyond my help.
The best Mastodon song. Period. It's so relaxing. It has their best chorus.
How is this song so low, at least should be in the top 10 in my opinionV 1 CommentUListen to Sample
