Diamond In The Witch House

Album: Once More Round the Sun (2014)
  • Neurosis lead singer Scott Kelly returns for his fifth cameo with Mastodon, singing on this 7-minute album closer. Bassist Troy Sanders commented to Kerrang! magazine: "He's been on other albums of ours, but the part he does on this gives me absolute chills when I listen to it."
  • Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor told Exclaim! magazine that Scott Kelly picked the song. "He gravitated to that more," Dailor said. "He basically said, 'I love this track, I'm feeling it, I can kill this one.' So we said 'have at it, go kill it' and he did."
  • Mastodon described the song in the press release as focusing on "the fragility of responsibility."
