Best Mastodon Band Members
The Top Ten
In my opinion, he is the best singer in Mastodon. Not only does he have an awesome voice, but he does it all while drumming (Need I mention he is one of the best Metal drummers of all time). Not a lot of people can handle basic drumming and singing at the same time, but he can do it all at a top notch level. Songs that feature Dailor as lead singer are some of the fan favorites, like Oblivion, Curl of the Burl, Dry Bone Valley, and The Motherload. - ryanrimmel
A great singer and fantastic drummer. He can sit behind a drumkit the size of a child/beginner-kit and play so advanced It's mindblowing.
A very versatile guitar player with a great voice. His voice sorta reminds me of Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam. This guy can absolutely shred on the guitar! His voice is what defines the iconic Sludge Metal sound of the more recent Mastodon albums, like Crack the Skye, The Hunter, and Once More 'Round The Sun. He is also the main songwriter of Mastodon. I was fortunate enough to meet him on 5/10/15 before a Mastodon show. - ryanrimmel
Troy is the man behind Mastodon's harsh vocals and bone-crushingly heavy early work. His vocals do nothing but fit Mastodon's Sludgy sound. He did most of the vocals in albums such as The Motherload, Leviathan, Blood Mountain, and provided harsh backing vocals in their more recent albums. Troy also is a killer on the bass, one of the best in the game. - ryanrimmel
His bass playing is great, sure, but where Troy really shines is his fantastic clean vocals, with their smoky, gritty qualities. His work in Killer Be Killed is great, too.
The only Mastodon member that is not credited as a lead vocalist. He performed backing vocals in a death growl style in Mastodon's early albums, such as Remission, Leviathan, and Call of the Mastodon. He very rarely participated in vocals anymore, and is only credited as a lead vocalist in "Deathbound". He has become a Heavy Metal icon nonetheless as the rhythm guitarist since the band's inception. - ryanrimmel
The original "lead vocalist" of Mastodon, not many people know this, but it's true. He only appeared on Mastodon's 9 song demo in 2000, and left a few months later. Saner's vocals can be heard in the song 'Call of the Mastodon' in their first compilation album. - ryanrimmel
Mitchka performed with Mastodon as a keyboard player during their 2011 tour. - ryanrimmel
Known as the lead singer of Clutch, he performed guest vocals on the iconic song, 'Blood And Thunder'. I have him here cause I need more items. - ryanrimmel
Better known as the lead vocalist of the Progressive Sludge Metal band Neurosis, he performed guest vocals on Aqua Dementia and Crystal Skull. - ryanrimmel
