According to Ain’t It Cool News, Mastodon is working on scoring their first movie, Jonah Hex, an adapation of the DC Comics horror western. To this, we can only say “amazing!” The band has gotten more atmospheric with every album, and instrumentally, they’re an interesting enough band that Crack the Skye even came in a special edition without vocals. And if there’s one metal band that should be able to pull if off, it’s Mastodon. You just have to listen to the chicken pickin’ that Bill Kelliher does in “Megalodon” and the surf tones of the first half of the solo on “Diviniations” to know that they’ll be able to tackle some country-ish atmospheres. The movie, scheduled to come out in 2010, stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox.
