In February, we talked to the pioneering American prog/sludge/pop/metal band Mastodon, who were then in the studio recording their forthcoming LP, Once More Round The Sun. And today, the first music from that album has emerged, in the form of “High Road,” which debuted today on 98.9 The Rock, and which you can listen to right now below. My two cents after one spin: I like it a lot! But I liked The Hunter a lot, too, and I think this is much closer to The Hunter than it is, say, Leviathan (which, um, I also liked a lot). Listen!
Once More Round The Sun is out in June via Warner.
