Blood and Thunder
Mastodon Lyrics

I think that someone is trying to kill me
Infecting my blood and destroying my mind
No man of the flesh could ever stop me
The fight for this fish is a fight to the death

White whale, holy grail
White whale, holy grail

What remorseless emperor commands me
I no longer govern my soul
I am completely immersed in darkness
As I turn my body away from the sun

White whale, holy grail
White whale, holy grail

Split your lungs with blood and thunder
When you see the white whale
Break your backs and crack your oars men
If you wish to prevail

This ivory leg is what propels me
Harpoons thrust in the sky
Aim directly for his crooked brow
And look him straight in the eye

White whale, holy grail
White whale, holy grail

Record company "what's the best idea for a video as the songs about Moby Dick"

Mastodon "clowns".

Record company " excellent, here's some money".

Which is actually genius because the story Moby Dick was specifically written and intended to be a story about nothing abstract. The purpose was to write a story with zero allegory that still had artistic value, which is exactly what this music video and song does. It's freaking brilliant.

Hey let's wear silly hats because they have tassels is the same level of allegory that the White Whale represents, none.

That's Mastodon for you

New drinking game: take a shot every time you hear a drum fill

Say Hello To The Robots

shitfaced after the first verse

Harry Whitelegg

scrap taking shots, may as well drink the bottle throughout the song


I wish Brann would bring some of that back. He’s toned it down a bit too much in the last few albums.


By my count, that's eight within the first minute

Iron Yeti

I don't think I like this..... I've already died twice and I'm only 1:30 into the song.
