Atlanta, Georgia (1999 – present)

Mastodon is an American / band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 1999. The band comprises bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders, guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds, guitarist Bill Kelliher and drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor. They have released six full-length albums to date, expanding their musical borders from early raw sludgy riffs to later multi-layered songs, yet maintaining progressive style with unusual time signatures and odd instrumentation.

It was announced, in late 2005, that, having fulfilled contractual obligations to indie label, relapse records, Mastodon had been offered a deal by a major music label, a spot on the Warner Music roster. Despite this, however, relapse records released a DVD, and re-released the band’s only demo.

An album titled Call of the Mastodon, comprising the material recorded for the band’s first and only untitled demo, which featured Eric Saner on vocals, was released in early 2006. A DVD entitled “The Workhorse Chronicles” was released not long after and a full length album, the band’s Warner Music debut, Blood Mountain, was released September 12th, 2006. In an interview with MTV news, Brann Dailor revealed that the band’s sound, on this upcoming release would be decidedly different and more “progressive.” He also expressed excitement over the possibility of the birth of a new “prog movement,” naming bands such as Isis, along with Mastodon, as prospective leaders of said movement.

    @bruno_avilar - The box sets look good. If it had some B-sides / demo's from the remission sessions I'd probably get it. Though with it being limited to 1500 it is rather tempting.

    If they never evolved their style there would have never been a Crack the Skye in the first place. People are stupid.

    Why the heck would folk want a watered down version of an earlier record, that never works out. Be glad for The Hunter and Sun, they're unique spurts of Mastodon freshness. Full of energetic glitz and strange glamour, they may return to proggy meandering if they have more to offer on the matter.

    People complaining about how they likely won't make an album that sounds like Crack The Skye again really need their mouths sewn shut. Their evolving style is one of the best I've ever heard from any band. I was surprised by OMRTS and I enjoyed it much more than I was expecting to. Mastodon never ceases to amaze and I never get bored of their music regardless of how much I listen to it.

    Crack The Skye and Leviathan both have a certain 'property' to them (which I can't define) which causes them to stand out so much among the myriads of other great metal records.
