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

I graduated from the ninja gym.
hip hop is going metal. punk is so indie now it's unknown. Boycott punk but support noise core.
Let them hoes twerk from hip hop to metal! \m/
Thank you Pandora for introducing me to Mastodon, I have heard them on the radio occasionally but never really caught my attention. Well, now they have it and then some... their music is badass!
Watch my pics on haohmaru windy on youtube.
The new album sucks ? That's news to me.
You can't type a** on here? Oh, grow up, Pandora.
Don't believe the bullcrap about their new album not being good. I guess it's a matter of opinion but I think it kicks a**.
HEARTS ALIVE!
uN-holy alliance tour was Electromagne t i c a l l y engineered with metal Vengeance
Yeah, not sure about the new album. Need to listen to it more. Everything before that was amazing, though. Best American metal band since early Metallica, IMO.
I've heard pretty bad reviews on their new album... sucks considering all their others are masterpieces .
crush destroy
tread lighty
from mars to sirius sounds like a mastodon album butt is from gojira, jackson guitars are my endorsement
Whalecore FTW
hand of stone
It's nice seeing them getting respect and mass audiences. Sludgey prog ftw.
the title track to their last album
Damn those peppers are hot
from mars to sirus vs leviathan
curl of the burl kills off pac man and has sexy, blonde chics in it.
I agree krampus. krampus from carn evil the game.
They need to make another album that is reminiscent of Remission, Leviathan, etc.
Love these guys, but I had to give them a long time to grow on me. Now I'm hooked
One of the most original sounding bands out there
These guys suck live, but albums are awesome
The best American metal band of the 21st century. Unmatched combination of musicianship and songwriting. All of their albums are solid.
Leviathan is hands down the best concept album I've ever heard
I had my wife hear this and we made wicked sexy poo.
Mastodon is God
Brent Hinds is God
Five finger death punch gobble balls
I like this band! i discover so many good bands on here.
Great Band !
Amazing musicians
Badass song!
carlaespana8 8
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 :)
