DAMN SON LOOK AT THIS FUCKING COVER ART

1309.jpg

That's right dudes, Mastodon's new album Crack The Skye comes out NEXT WEEK.

But the good people in Mastodon have been kind enough to put the WHOLE FUCKING THING ON THEIR MYSPACE FOR FREE

http://www.myspace.com/mastodon

It's really spacey and pretty fucking different from all their previous work

personally I like it despite its departures from their previous stuff, and I feel like it'll grow on me even more

If you are not familiar with this excellent band's excellent body of work then YOU ARE A LOSER AND I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU

here's some of their previous songs so you can get your fucking act together

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=labytsb3gfI

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx-jAf0QcCE

youtube does not have many decent versions of Blood Mountain stuff, which is unfortunate because it is an excellent album

    The only song I know I like from Mastodon so far is "Colony of Birchmen"

    this may be because Josh Homme had a part

    Oblivion and Divinations are both fantastic

    I'm still halfway on most of the rest of the album

    Crack The Skye is fantastic though

    I figure I mainly like Mastodon when the singers are going for a more melodic sound, which I understand they do more and more of as albums come out, so maybe I'll like this one

    I can't wait for the album to drop. The album is great by itself but I really want the instrumentals too. http://www.cracktheskye.com has the instrumental version of Oblivion.

    The Czar is really really awesome. Crack the Skye seriously only gets better as it goes on, which is awesome because it starts pretty well.

    that's kind of what this album is about
    There is a paraplegic and the only way that he can go anywhere is if he astral travels. He goes out of his body, into outer space and a bit like Icarus, he goes too close to the sun, burning off the golden umbilical cord that is attached to his solar plexus. So he is in outer space and he is lost, he gets sucked into a wormhole, he ends up in the spirit realm and he talks to spirits telling them that he is not really dead. So they send him to the Russian cult, they use him in a divination and they find out his problem. They decide they are going to help him. They put his soul inside Rasputin's body. Rasputin goes to usurp the czar and he is murdered. The two souls fly out of Rasputin's body through the crack in the sky(e) and Rasputin is the wise man that is trying to lead the child home to his body because his parents have discovered him by now and think that he is dead. Rasputin needs to get him back into his body before it's too late. But they end up running into the Devil along the way and the Devil tries to steal their souls and bring them down…there are some obstacles along the way

    which i am okay with

    it's nice to have some constants in my music listening

    whenever mastodon talks about their concepts it's always hilarious because they mention these random things in passing that are such tiny aspects of the story and setting
    and they say it in such a matter of fact manner and they're such crazy things
    like oh yeah golden umbilical cord attached to his solar plexus, duh
    or 'it's a one-eyed sasquatch that can see into the future'
    oh of course
    how could i have not guessed that

    it's great
