Mastodon Colony of Birchmen Video

Colony of Birchmen was released in support of the 2006 Mastodon album Blood Mountain.  It was the first Mastodon single to break into the Hot Mainstream Rock chart achieving number 33.   The track is also notable for featuring some vocals by Queens Of The Stone Age front-man Josh Homme.

The music video for the track is very interesting, it shows the band playing in a spooky cavern while the forest and caves around them experience various supernatural events.

Colony of Birchmen Lyrics

This forest is growing faster than I can tell
Cell structure eats away at a massive swell
Seems however I’m a victim of circumstance
Hunt for ogres and dwarfs
Lion slicer
Run with death
Run with death
White faces coming closer with every step
Earth envelopes taking breath without happenstance
Carve my teeth out ripping through the sheep’s head curse
Hunter gatherer
Ridden from the cave
Run with death
Run with death
Gone away
My heart’s gone away
Taking everything
My heart’s gone away
Take it now
Hunt for ogres and dwarfs
Lion slicer
Run with death
Run with death
Gone away
My heart’s gone away
Taking everything
My heart’s gone away
Take it now
