Mastodon is really incredible. This is a great album. Their style is agressive, strong, and interesting. My favorite track is "The Wolf is Loose".

Product Overview

Personnel: Brent Hinds (vocals, guitar); Troy Sanders (vocals, bass guitar); Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Josh Homme, Scott Kelly (vocals); Bill Kelliher (guitar, background vocals); Nicola Shangrow (violin); Jennifer Ellison (cello); Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (organ, synthesizer); Br„nn Dailor (drums, background vocals). Additional personnel: Cedric Bixler-Zavala. Audio Mixer: Rich Costey. Recording information: 60 Psycho Hum Studios, Medford, OR; Jupiter Studios, Seattle, WA; Red Room Recorders, Tampa, FL; Studio Litho, Seattle, WA. Reigning kings of the early-2000s metal resurgence, Atlanta's Mastodon expertly blended vintage speed-metal riffage, stoner rock's sludgy power, and prog's vision and scope on 2004's acclaimed LEVIATHAN. The band returns even stronger on their 2006 major label debut, BLOOD MOUNTAIN. The quartet's playing remains unquestionably tight, as fierce solos overlay colossal riffs, which are anchored by a rhythm section that is fluid when necessary (as on the ambient prog-metal of "Sleeping Giant") and lock-step perfect when the orders for speed and power are sent down from on high (see "Bladecatcher"). While BLOOD MOUNTAIN is purportedly a concept album (loosely built around the idea of being lost and doomed and at nature's mercy in the great wild, as opposed to LEVIATHAN's overt Moby Dick theme) it's difficult to decipher a clear narrative from the scorched-earth vocals. Nonetheless, a classical sense of grandiosity pervades the album, as the lightning intensity and sheer power of the music take the listener on a bewildering journey. But remain calm, dear listener: Mastodon will get you to the top of the mountain--bloody and beaten, but altogether satisfied.

Artist Bio
The mighty Atlanta-based metal outfit Mastodon rest high atop new-millennium metal's Mount Olympus. Unleashing a sonic assault that is intense, intricate, and absolutely enormous, the band has garnered considerable praise from the metal community as well as other listeners not given to effusive comments on the finer points of headbanging. Mastodon's 2004 concept album, LEVIATHAN, was considered an immediate and undisputed metal classic upon its release, and set the standard for the genre's post-Metallica resurgence. The band returned with another monolithic slab of thrash-prog fury on 2006's BLOOD MOUNTAIN.
