They're a quartet full of prog metal power.
Formed by Brann Dailor at drums, Troy Sanders at Vocals and Bass, Bill Kelliher at Guitar and Brent Hinds at Guitar and Vocals, Mastodon have a very good metal sound. First progressive metal, they have incorporated from hardcore to technical sounds, creating there one of the best prog. metal bands there.
They got the first contract just one year after the formation of the band ( in Atlanta, Georgia in 1999 ). After a release, they got signed to Relapse Records, and released many good discs. In 2005, they got a contract with Warner Records, and got in the mainstream. No, they arent sellout. The sound varies according to the album ( Each has a element : Fire, Water, Wind and Earth )
