Biography

Mastodon have never really done anything the “conventional” way. The Atlanta-based band formulated their own brand of highly-skilled hard rock over a decade ago when others were rehashing 80s metal, and went on to mastermind a string of complex concept albums while much of the music world was centered on making digestible singles. The fact that Mastodon has received an outpouring ... Read more in Amazon's Mastodon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars So amazing it's not even funny 9 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
In the new millenium, the American metal scene has become clogged up with far too many stale, indistinguishable metalcore acts, such as Killswitch Engage and the DREADFUl Atreyu. However, a certain band called Mastodon stands out in that sea of mediocrity like the white whale on the album's cover. Why? Good question. That's partly becuase Mastodon mangaged to fuse together so many different subgenres of metal to create their own intense, utterly original sound. You may hear elements of Stoner's massive heaviness, thrash's intensity and prog rock's extreme complexity in their sound. Like their band name would suggest, Mastodon's sound is absolutely huge and unstoppable, but it is also very rhythmically complex and dexterous. This is mainly due to Brann Dailor's fill-heavy, jazz fusion-esque drumming. He underlies every song with drumming more complex than almost any other metal drummer could comprehend. The band made this unique style evident on their brutal debut album Remission. That was definitely a great album, but it pales in comparison to this.
Leviathan, the band's second album, is a loose concept album based on Herman Melville's classic book Moby Dick, a fitting story to base a heavy metal album on. However, Mastodon managed to create the PERFECT match for this book in their sound on Leviathan. The clear but dense production gives Leviathan a sound as bottomless and huge as an ocean. The vocals, although slightly more melodic and varied than on Remission, are still mostly harsh, aggressive barks to carry the intense nature of the songs. However, the vocals are occasionally eerie singing, as on the menacing, progressive Seabeast and the harmonic Naked Burn. Yet one of the album's main tricks is that the vocals aren't mixed to the very forefront like on most albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gobsmackingly good! 29 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was a bit of a gamble for me.I bought this album due to the reviews it was getting in Classic Rock and Kerrang.This is not something I usually do as I buy most of the time on impulse.
I wasn't dissapointed! The musicianship contained on this cd is incredible.From a drummers point of view this is highly technical stuff with most songs composed with loads of fills and very jazz like patterns.
It is also enormously heavy in places but also gentle in other parts.
It does take a few listens to get into it but bear with it. You'll get to a point,like myself,where you cannot stop listening to it as you get totally absorbed within its aural landscape.
You have no excuses.BUY THIS ALBUM NOW!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper Bo 24 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
I had never listened to Mastodon, but my friend really buzzed off them, so I thought "why not?" and bought this album. Possibly the best thing I have ever done. In my favourite albums ever list, this rates third behind Metallica's Master of Puppets and Led Zeppelin 4.

The album is brutally heavy in some places, but they can go acoustic quite well, and Brent Hinds' little country lick in Megalodon should not be missed by anyone! The vocals change throughout the album so you can never be sure it is the same vocalist!!!

All in all, a quality buy, I suggest this album to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, brutal, majestic... 16 Jun 2011
By d
Format:Audio CD
Mastodon have reinvigorated metal for me...the most exciting and absorbing band I have found in a long time...their music repays repeated listening. There is a lot of depth and subtlety in there along with the power and energy. They sound like a band, but you can differentiate their individual characteristics as they play - it's music with real feel and quality. All in all top marks from me.

Oh, and if you haven't read Moby Dick, that's pretty good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best work until Crack the Skye 28 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
The first Mastodon album I heard and the best until Crack the Skye moved their game on to the next level. It isn't easy listening, but it's worthwhile in spades. Very technical, jazzy playing of intelligent, dramatic and fantastical songs in a "Moby Dick" theme, producing very aggressive and involving music esp. Hearts Alive which is highly dramatic/cinematic. I think they are the most doomy sounding band since Sabbath. While you are here, also buy Crack the Skye.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mighty Beast 11 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
It's pretty difficult to seperate any of the Atlanta quartet's three studio albums proper, but personally I think this one pips it. While 'Blood Mountain' has the vision & 'Remission' had that live organic dirty feel, 'Leviathan' is possibly the best example of Mastodon's unique gift for heavy music.

Every one of the 10 tracks on this, dare i say it, masterpiece, combines odd time signatures, interwoven guitar passages & drums that simply pummel your mind. It's no secret that drummer Brann Dailor is a jazz octopus, but on this album he really shines, clearly reigning in the wild freestyle of 'Remission' just a touch. Again the time signature switches of previous tracks such as 'March of the Fire Ants' has been controlled to provide a more cohesive experience for the first few listens. Having said that, there is plenty of depth to tracks such as 'Seabeast' & the epic thirteen odd-minute 'Hearts Alive' & who can resist the good ol'boy southern riff half way through 'Megalodon'? Made me smile anyway.

Relapse records certainly knew a good thing when they saw it, allowing several guest appearances including Scott Kelly from Neurosis. Opener 'Blood & Thunder' also contains a cracking guest vocal from Clutch frontman Neil Fallon with the anthemic 'Split your lungs with blood & thunder'. It really is first class stuff.

'Leviathan' is the perfect showcase for the bands over all talent & paved the way allowing them to experiment more with the next album. With a concept losely based on Melville's 'Moby Dick' & a brillant cover conveying a certain painting described in the book, this is a piece of art with brains & passion. A fierce, heavy monster, ultimately for any metal fan, absolutely essential.

A concept story loosely based around Herman Melville's - Moby Dick sounds like the quintessential prog metal album, but with Mastodon's - Leviathan I would say it achieves far more... Read more

The best of metal and on the last track old school rock combined. The growls suit the content and the music is evocative of extreme drama.
