Prog-metal band Mastodon’s 2009 album Crack the Skye is a classic – created with a solid backbone of extended riff-a-thons, and decorated with lyrics laced with mysticism and mystery, it’s one of my favourite albums of the past few years. Their new album, The Hunter, is due for release on September 27 – but to whet our appetites they’ve released the entire thing for free on YouTube a week early! So, for those that want some fresh music playing while they work today, here it is:
There are some sweet visualisations to some of those songs by the way, if you’ve got the time to watch while you listen. Don’t forget to pick up the official album release when it becomes available next week, for the complete listening experience.
