Pure (Metal) Genius,
This review is from: Blood Mountain [U.S. Version] (Audio CD)
This album is pure genius!! Every song is just immense!! Brutally heavy!! Insanely technical!! But always catchy as hell!! Bladecatcher is pure instrumental mayhem with an amazing guitar line that goes in, out, up, down and round and round. And the riff that drops halfway in to siberian divide, pure genius!! How it's taken someone this long to write that riff is beyond belief!! I tend to ignore the lyrics with mastodon albums cuz they don't make much sense, but when the vocals are so good who cares what they're saying! Album of the year?! In a year full of amazing albums it could just top the lot!!
WARNING! Excessive volume will cause ASBO's unless your neighbours love mastodon!
