two widely different band, that never did compromise at their peak, two of the most complex yet fun bands in their decade, ambitious can be used to describe both bands, goofey yet concentrated and beautifull if they have to,

both have giant names Tongue, Gentle Mastodon Giant LOL, not that Mastodonts were gentle, they were quite dangerous

Mastodon means "nipple teeth" in Latin.

yes both that whe even have two written languages and old norwegian, old norse, and 400-500 different dialects and som socialects, hell, even Swedish and Danish is comprehensable, I you can even read some Icelandic if you have studied some Old-norse, which futher improves your skill to read Gothic

As my tastes have swung more towards metal in recent times, I had to vote for Mastodon. Although I love both bands.

Mastodon!

He's rude to everyone. He's a bitter, jaded human being. It's a natural outset of clinging on to the clearly false belief that Dream Theater is still relevant. Deceiving one's self into accepting such a unequivocally untrue statement can wreck havoc on even the strongest of man's psyches. I feel that any bit of humanity he had is now lost.

I hate to vote both, but I can't really chose between the two.
