  • Priestess was the second warmer for Mastodon at a small theater in Portland OR where I heard them for the first time. A small pudgy filthy guy with a gibson sg strapped on him thanked Mastodon for a great tour and told us all how lucky we were to see them in such a small venue right as Blood Mountain was breaking loose.
    I honestly didn’t know what to expect from them as Mouth for an Architect had opened up so the tone was set for some serious post-metal noise when all of a sudden these four guys cracked open “Lay Down” and lit the place on fire. The response from the crowd was deafening and certain, they had just made 600 of their biggest fans.
    You could say “riff-rock” or make comparisons to Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, or what have you but they deliver fist pumping, wind in your hair rock, plain and simple.
    It is also worth a mention that they brought homage to Spinal Tap as well. These guys are un-abashedly rock n’ roll from their riff and solo rides to the wrap around mutton chop mustache, they are the package, the real deal. Everything about them reels you in and then before you know it you just threw a full beer across the crowd.
    The truth of the matter is that I feel lucky I got to see Priestess in such a small venue. These guys will (or should) be headliners on a huge stage someday.
    I have to echoe that their album is great but it PALES in comparison to seeing them live.
