Turisas are very enjoyable but they're a bit superficial. I listen to, say, a Summoning album for hours and not grow tired of it. With Turisas, I can get pumped up with "March of the Varangian Guard" maybe once every 2 months.

Just a side note... I'm not really a Soundgarden fan, but I like some of their stuff. Never understood why "Black Hole Sun" was a bigger hit than "Fell On Black Days" which I love:

I am sort of in a similar situation. Superunknown was the only album by them that I really liked, but it remains one of my favorite rock albums to this day. I also thought Black Hole Sun was one of the weaker tracks on the album. *shrugs*

Mastodon
AAAAAAAW YEAH. \m/(>_<)\M/

LOL, fwiw, I've made some fanboyish posts in support of them on the forum over the years  ;D

I've occasionally heard things from Mastodon that I liked, but they generally get a "meh" from me. The music doesn't live up to the cover-art. Also, I can't forgive them for making such a lame video for "Blood and Thunder.
