Anyone know why the final track of each album by Mastodon as an instrumental referencing him in some way? Just curious really. As far as I know, "Elephant Man," "Joseph Merrick," and, "Pendulous Skin," all reference him, some in a more obvious way than others. Just want to know why

Probably just some thing they do.

Just like the first letter to Barathrums albums spell out HEIL SOVA! Or Morbid Angel albums go A, B, C, D....
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
