Mastodon 'Curl of the Burl'

Atlantans bring the heavy to 'Late Show' stage

Atlanta's finest progressive metal band, Mastodon, celebrated the recent release of their fifth album, The Hunter, with a full-throttle version of "Curl of the Burl" last night on Late Show With David Letterman. Though the band often tend toward concept albums, they say there is no unifying theme on the new release. The concept on their Late Show appearance, at least, seemed clear: hit it early, often and hard.
