I would like to play "my apocalypse"; but since it is not in the game; my second favorite is "all nightmare long"


"War Ensemble" is probably the toughest one, so that, and "Master of Puppets"

I retweeted (amberannan)! King Nothing is very much a personal fav of mine.


No Leaf Clover...but what I think everyone is most pumped about is the Mastodon t-shirt. I will seriously wear that every day, just give me a chance. Also,, so give me more entries to annoy my roommate with the sounds of Metallica.
