We mentioned last week that pretty much everything Clutch’s Neil Fallon appears on is enhanced by it. The biggest song he’s guested on outside of Clutch is Mastodon’s “Blood and Thunder.” This weekend at the Soundwave Festival, Mastodon ended their set with the song saying “I don’t know if our friend Neil Fallon from Clutch is in the crowd, but if he is, we want him to come up.” Sure enough, Fallon made his way up to the stage to hang out and sing his infamous verse following the solo. Following the performance (which he owned, btw) Fallon offered the following via his Instagram:
10 years ago four guys from Georgia asked me to sing on a song called “Blood and Thunder.” Little did I know that Mastodon’s “Leviathan” would go in to be one of the most important and influential metal albums of our age. Thank you @creamale for letting me a part of it &@ozzy_richenberg for the photo of last night’s show in Sydney.
Yup. Mastodon’s second album is ten years old this August. Feel old yet? Good thing they’ve got a new one coming out sometime this year that’ll hopefully make you feel younger.
