MASTODON
BLOOD MOUNTAIN
REPRISE
Atlanta's MASTODON have been blowing apart the boundaries of metal with each release but their 2006 album "Blood Mountain" is possibly their most explosive & original album yet. There's very few bands of any genre that you can say this about anymore but MASTODON don't sound like anybody else. The totally crazy drumming (this guy could possibly out duel DON CAB's DAMON CHE), technical riffs & prog influenced structures are still there but they've added a more melodic edge to the vocals this time around. Similar to "Leviathan," "Blood Mountain" is a concept record but this time the band is trying to conquer a mountain not a whale. The central theme is a difficult mountain climb & the hardships involved including fatigue, starvation, the harsh elements, being lost in the woods & contact with wild animals (including mythical beasts.) MASTODON have created a metal myth that even the Greek poet HOMER would be proud of.

MASTODON
EMPEROR OF SAND
REPRISE
Atlanta metal gods MASTODON return with the 7th album in their impressive discography. According to the band, "Emperor of Sand" is their most personal album to date with lyrics focusing on deaths in the band's family & how short life can seem at times hence the title "Emperor of Sand" or one that controls the passage of time (i.e. sand). The album features some of the most melodic, progressive "rock" songs that the group have written yet but don't worry, these guys are still as heavy as ever. Another fine album from one of the best metal/hard rock bands going. RECOMMENDED.

MASTODON
LEVIATHAN
RELAPSE
The mighty Mastadon are back! Does it get any better than this; the follow up release to the amazing "Re- mission" not only solidifies Mastodon as one of the best metal bands around right now, but "Leviathan" is also a concept album based entirely around the story of "Moby Dick." This album is overall much cleaner production-wise than the very dirty "Remission" but that only helps to highlight one of the best things about this band, the totally out of control drumming. Seriously this guy is insane. Some of the songs are borderline "catchy" which might turn some people off but the mathy parts are still there to throw things off. This also might be the best artwork on a record this year. Herman Melville is moshing in his grave!!!! Highest metal recommendation this year!!!!!!!!!!!

MASTODON
HUNTER (SINGLE LP)
Warner
Although significantly heavier than most rock bands of MASTODON's popularity, "The Hunter" continues their trajectory away from ultra-heavy stoner metal into more melodic, progressive territory. Although the songs are, at their most, just over five minutes (unlike 2009's "Crack the Skye," where the tracks twice rose above 10 minutes), there's still prog-rock tendencies amist the more-straightforward (for MASTODON) structures of these songs. Once again different, once again very interesting & RECOMMENDED!!
