Mastodon

Atlanta-based sludge/stoner/alternative metal outfit Mastodon formed in 1999 around the talents of guitarist Bill Kelliher, drummer Bränn Dailor, bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders, and guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds. One of the more notable New Wave of American Heavy Metal acts, a genre spawned in the mid-'90s by bands like Pantera, Biohazard, and Machine Head, Mastodon's innovative, lyrically astute blend of progressive metal, grindcore, and hardcore helped position the band as one of the preeminent metal acts of the early 21st century.

Formed out of a mutual admiration for the Melvins, Black Sabbath, Neurosis, and Thin Lizzy, Mastodon signed with Relapse Records (Today Is the Day, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Coalesce, Burnt by the Sun) in 2001 on the strength of a four-song demo. The EP Lifesblood arrived that same year, followed by the group's full-length debut, Remission, in 2002. The album made positive waves in the metal community, but it wasn't until 2004's Leviathan that the band's eclectic brand of proto-metal began to enter the bloodstream of the entire music community. As polished and melodic as it was brutal and genre-defying, Leviathan, loosely based on author Herman Melville's Moby Dick, signaled a turning point in the band's career, appearing on critics' year-end Top Ten lists across the musical spectrum.

Mastodon's newfound popularity eventually landed them a deal with Warner Bros., but not before fulfilling their contract with Relapse in 2006 by releasing Call of the Mastodon, a remastered version of the group's first two demo EPs, and Workhorse Chronicles, a DVD that chronicled the band's story thus far with interviews and concert footage. The band's third album, Blood Mountain, debuted at number 32 on the Billboard charts and received a Grammy nomination in the Best Metal Performance category for the song "Colony of Birchmen." Blood Mountain marked the band's highest chart peak, and set the stage for its long-awaited 2009 follow-up, Crack the Skye. In 2011, the band released the CD/DVD package Live at the Aragon, which was recorded in Chicago during the Crack the Skye tour. Mastodon followed quickly with new material, taking a step back from their more prog-oriented approach on their fifth studio album, The Hunter. It gave them their biggest commercial success to date, hitting number ten on the Billboard chart.

Later in 2011 Troy Sanders took some time out from the band, forming the metal supergroup Killer Be Killed with Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. He worked with the group on and off for the next few years; their debut album was eventually released in 2014. Mastodon was still a priority, however. After touring Europe and South America in 2012, they started work on their sixth album the following year with producer Nick Raskulinecz. The album, eventually titled Once More 'Round the Sun, was released in June 2014, preceded by the sludgy single "High Road." ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

Feels good whale =A=
I met Braan once at his wife's band's gig (Tiger! Tiger!). He is a pretty cool dude. Tall as hell.
Blood and thunder is awesome
I want to hear Leviathan but don't know how to request a particular track. anyone? thanks!
Mastadon is hit or miss. I saw them live twice. The first time they were all drunk out of their minds and the second time the guitarist from Valiant Thorr had to fill in. Not too great live. But their older albums are awesome. Crack the skye was... alright.
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Such a good mix of doom/thrash/ s l u d g e metal such a great band
Yeah Crusher Destroyer is the best song by Mastodon!
how is this dent lolol. not even close. this is epic sludge metal
Djent, stupid autocorrect
Dent I mean
Um, Fredrick Thordendall of Meshuggah kinda invented that style of drop tuning. Both awesome bands though, don't get me wrong.
@stephensgar y nah that's me, bro :)
Mastodon.. The very first Djentlemen.
Lol whoever was waiting to hear die finger was wasting their time. You couldn't pay me to go one of their concerts...
Mastodon's unique sound is the soundtrack that shreds the monotony of my everyday. Thx Mastodon, keep it coming and for all that is sacred do what you cuz it's perfection!
screw five finger. if I want to hear an over emotional girl dressed like a full grown man id listen to my dike cousin. there ya go, suck a fatty bud.
These guys sucked a** at Mayhem this year. No one was rocking out or head banging. Everyone was sitting and just waiting for five finger death punch to get stuff started. The bands on the smaller stages were better. They sound alright on the record but not live. Not trying to be a hater. But there you go
Am I the only one who didn't dig Blood Mountain and Crack the Skye as much as the first three?
falzon , if anyone doesn't like Tool, mushrooms won't help , drugs are bad m,kay....... d o n ' t worry I've done boatloads and still arrived at that conclusion, Amazing!!!!
Mastodon is an amazing evolving band and I love all of their songs. For all of you downing Tool you a bunch of morons, Tool is the s**t also just a different sound but Mastodon and Tool go together perfect....t r y taking some mushrooms and listening to both as your opinions will change!
I love anything that mastodon does. But my fav albums will forever be blood mountain and crack the skye
Tool is actually pretty cool, they are the opposite end of the prog metal spectrum. They are more artsy whereas Mastodon is heavy as f**k and almost more stoner metalish, while I would still consider them both prog metal they are as far away as to bands can possibly be while staying in the same genre. Fun fact; the mastodon guys met at a High on Fire show.
kduc2000
Orange Peel...here we come!
Music vid for Cut You Up With a Linoleum Knife was HILARIOUS!!! Shame they don't have that song on pandora.
Tool sucks and isn't even metal. How can you compare s**t like that to such a good band like Mastodon?
jimmyslavo
mastodon is different than any band we have ever seen, my favorite band for years due to its unique style
@sette82 you cant compare mastodon and tool... WAY different IMO
blood mountain and crack the skye are the best albums
"Curl of the burl" and "The Hunter" awesome songs!!!
I'm a ninja
If you like Mastodon go to www.killjoym e t a l . c o m .
Tool is an elaphant.... . M A S T O D O N is a beast....
Tool on steroids.
I saw them twice, first time with high in fire and dethklok and the second time with between the buried and me and Baroness. Great live band. I would love to see them again
Crack the Skye is the most epic metal album ever made. Over and out!
they don't sound anything like slipknot. How did you make that connection?
Tool on Roids! Awesone
slightly?? i think i just threw up a little.
wow. its funny how a mastodon page turned into an ethical debate about vegetarianis m and other such off topic points. its pandora guys. just shred what you like and jump in a pit and throw a couple windmills haha. Its all in love.
