Mastodon - Remission (Re-issue) (Purple/Black) (2LP) Cover Art Mastodon - Remission (Re-issue) (Purple/Black) (2LP)

Limited edition on two colored LPs; purple and black. Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Mastodon is one of those super precise hardcore math rock bands that just pummels your mind from the first note until the last. It's double bass math madness drenched with tricky parts, stop/go changes garaunteed to dart off in a different direction at any given moment.

HUGE sound, awesome chops, great songs. When you want the truly HEAVY, you need Mastodon.

Mastodon awaken the slumbering heavy music scene on their debut full-length Remission. The band’s prodigious ability bridges the soulful and technical as Herculean yet incisive songwriting is effortlessly fused with an expansive and emotive tenor. Creative, distinct, graceful and strong, Mastodon's Remission features the traits of a benchmark release, a standard to which others will be held and ultimately measured by. Rarely is rock so pure and hard-hitting.

Mastodon - Leviathan (Re-issue) (LP) Cover Art Mastodon - Leviathan (Re-issue) (LP)

Limited edition on black vinyl. Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Leviathan is the work of a band that’s getting tighter, more accomplished, and focused on writing good songs. While their strain of math-metal is a bit more tempered this time, they still have plenty of thrashy riffs that bring to mind Tommy Victor and Alex Skolnik, cut with the occasional southern rock lick or two. They set a mood with the songs, and that mood is sustained throughout. And the band adds another instance of growth by having actual singing on a couple tracks. It's still Mastodon - their sound is unmistakable. But if you were hoping for Remissions II, go listen to Remission again and lament that the band isn’t churning out carbon copies. If you want to see how the band’s progressed since then, get Leviathan. You won’t be disappointed.

If Remission sounded ancient, this shit is fucking biblical! A labyrinth of dark melodies to explore.

Some may notice a change in tone from Mastodon's previous sophomore release, Remission. The recording is cleaner, the production is tighter, and the wild gonzo jazz metal percussion styling of Brann Dailor have been reigned in slightly. However, the music itself is profoundly dense in ways that other bands trying to fuse various experimental and extreme styles with more melodic rock conventions are not. Leviathan is a triumph that finds the band showing intriguing intelligence, tremendous growth in song craft and even enhancement in their already impressive instrumental capabilities. Whether or not you care to read into the Moby Dick theme deeply or simply take it for what it is on the surface, there is no doubt that Mastodon's Leviathan is as its namesake, an American Classic.

Mastodon - Call of the Mastodon (Blood Red/Bone White) (LP) Cover Art Mastodon - Call of the Mastodon (Blood Red/Bone White) (LP)



Limited edition on blood red and bone white colored vinyl.

Call of the Mastodon is Lifesblood plus four other tracks. Seeing how Lifesblood is out of print, thatÆs not too bad a deal for those who came to the party late and want to see how the bandÆs evolved. Besides, the songs have been remastered and the movie samples that preceded the songs have been removed. Of those Lifesblood's songs, ôHail to Fireö and ôBattle at Seaö are the best. With these two songs, you can hear the inspiration for Remission and Leviathan. IÆm surprised that some of the other tracks, such as ôDeep Sea Creature,ö ôSlickleg,ö and ôCall of the Mastodon,ö werenÆt originally included on the EP, as they strike me as being more developed. Call of the Mastodon is an interesting album as it shows how it all began, and in the context of their two full-lengths how their style has become more refined with each release.

Limited edition picture disc.

"Asleep In The Deep," from Mastodon's 2014 cyclical opus Once More Around the Sun whose accompanying music video by artist Skinner portrays a cat's experience on psychedelics. Mastodon orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of it's signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves.

Mastodon - Once More 'round the Sun (Teal Marble) (2LP) Cover Art Mastodon - Once More 'round the Sun (Teal Marble) (2LP)

Limited edition on teal marble colored vinyl. Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Art is a cyclical beast. The same can easily be said of Grammy Award nominated hard rock juggernaut Mastodon. The group's four members recognize the importance of life's omnipresent cycles on their sixth full-length album, Once More 'Round the Sun. The band orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of its signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves. The very title says something slightly different for each member. "Quite literally, Once More 'Round the Sun means a year-in-the-life," explains Dailor. "Lyrically, we were discussing things that happened to us recently, whereas in the past we looked further back for inspiration. It's about 365 days in this band. It was a tough and strange journey. We happened to be in the middle of completing a full rotation musically as everything else was going on."

Mastodon - The Hunter (Red) (LP) Cover Art Mastodon - The Hunter (Red) (LP)

Limited edition on red colored vinyl.

It is difficult to choose one Mastodon LP that The Hunter most reflects. When you look at tracks like "Stargasm", the Title Track and "Bedazzled Fingernails" you recognise the spacey timbre that was present on Crack The Skye, and Sci-Fi horror elements that would have fit in nicely with the downright weird storyline that was explored on Crack The Skye. Tracks like "Black Tongue", which are finally given a context, seem like more of a throwback to the doom-style riffage of Crystal Skull, rather than a risky delving into Trivium-style two-part guitar harmonies over chugging power chords; a formula that has been well flogged over the years and is as boring now as it sounds. Furthermore, Thickening, the immediate standout track, takes elements of the rollicking, nautical guitar rhythms that were so well executed on Leviathan, and runs with them just long enough to surprise listeners when they then launch into a "Last Baron" style tempo change. Finally, as seen in tracks like "Curl Of The Burl", "Spectrelight", and "All The Heavy Lifting", The Hunter features the most songs written in Drop A since Remission in its entirety. That's enough to make anyone happy. The Hunter is a brilliant throwback to the things we love most about Mastodon, while still being highly effective in keeping the band's fanbase on its toes in terms of what to expect next. The Hunter is sensible enough to retain some of the elements we've seen in the Georgia quartet before - something which bands are almost never praised for.

Mastodon - Crack the Skye (Sky Blue) (LP) Cover Art Mastodon - Crack the Skye (Sky Blue) (LP)

Limited edition on sky blue colored vinyl.

This is the most daring of their four albums, its intricate story line playing out over multi-part songs that draw on ‘70s progressive rock, psychedelia and even country music. Mortality provides subtext and adds emotional resonance to the band’s sci-fi lyrics: the suicide of drummer Brann Dailor’s sister Skye and the near-death from a fractured skull of guitarist Brent Hinds in 2007 shade the maze-like narrative. All figure into an epic album about transcending the limitations of time, space and the human body. The lyrics present a Tolkien-like fantasy involving astral travel, spirit-world trysts and Czarist Russia. Though less immediately visceral than its predecessors, “Crack the Skye” is denser, deeper and more emotionally transfixing.

It takes a special band to do a prog metal concept album with dignity, but Atlanta's Mastodon are genre masters. Their sound is a cauldron of heavy southern rock riffs, duelling guitar harmonies, doomy Black Sabbath vocals, skittish jazz drums and eye-popping screams - a metal fan's dream. Their fourth LP delves even deeper into prog territory - the spirit world, via Tsarist Russia. With the epic, four-part The Czar, they retell the murder of Rasputin, his soul "spiralling up through the crack in the sky, leaving material world behind", while the music builds to a full-on gallop as attackers gain on the mad monk, the panic rising in the ludicrously fiddly guitars. The breakneck Divinations, meanwhile, invokes the Khlysty, a Russian sect who believed in communication with the spirits. If this all sounds a bit heavy going, Crack the Skye offers plenty of simple pleasures as Mastodon heap on the musical melodrama, with a more-is-more approach to fretwork that's bound to see them liven up moshpits.

Crack the Skye couldn’t be farther from a mainstream-pandering effort a la the Black Album or Superunknown, and nor is it a continuation of the crushing yet intricate sound first established by 2001’s Lifesblood EP and 2002’s Remission. In its place, we have an album that’s all but itched the crust/sludge heaviness in favor of exploring the sprawling sounds of 1970s progressive rock, with nary an obvious “single” to be found. Crack the Skye is clearly going for a cleaner, more melodic, more spacious sound devoid of the high compression that plagues many of today’s metal releases, and in turn, the four musicians have responded with their most disciplined performances on record to date.
