Legendary producer Rick Rubin is known for his work on massively successful releases from the likes of Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Linkin Park, but Corey Taylor, whose Slipknot recorded their 2004 album ‘Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)’ with Rubin, doesn’t exactly have a glowing review of the experience.
So you’ve listened to Mastodon’s albums, you’ve watched their videos and maybe you even own a ‘Crack the Skye’ T-shirt. But what can you expect if you’ve never actually seem them in their natural element, onstage under the lights, amps cranked and rocking out?
