MASTODON

MASTODON - An awesome band that I have relatively recently just got into in a big way!

The latest album 'Crack the Skye' is a wicked slab of soulful proggy metal mixed with a dash of Pink Floydy psychedelia!

Any other fans out there?

Used to be into them a bit, haven't heard any of their newer stuff.

Similar (but way different) stuff you might be into: Battle of Mice, Big Business, Cult of Luna, Don Caballero, Gospel, Harkonen, Kayo Dot, Kylesa, The Jesus Lizard, Neurosis, Zozobra.

Thanks definite, Mastodon was only a name to me before I read your post yesterday. I'm now checking them out, got hold of(lets say "borrowed") a copy of Leviathan, so I'm going to listen to it in the car on the way home from work today.

What I've heard so far sounds pretty good.

Nice one!
You must check out the latest 'Crack the Skye' though to really see where they're at now (Leviathan is their 3rd to last album now quite old)

Timi - I'm already a big Jesus Lizard fan but will definitely check some of those other names out for sure!

:D

Mastodon are cool. I quite enjoyed "Blood Mountain".
