Mastodon's defining album???,
This review is from: Once More Round The Sun (Audio CD)
I've been a Mastodon fan since the days of Remission and Leviathan and have watched them change and grow into a completely different beast from the Metal sludge monsters they started off as.
Without going into too much detail this album is a great combination of old meets new Mastodon. Much closer to the excellent Blood Mountain in comparison. The song writing has also made a giant leap too!
I've only heard the album a few times so far but I can see this competing with Behemoth for album of the year with the Heavy Metal faithful.
Is this Mastodon's defining moment? Who knows. But in years too come don't bet against it when it comes to the critics announcing the band's best of their stellar back catalogue!
