Mastodon - The Hunter

Georgia metal demigods Mastodon have already shared “Black Tongue” and “Curl Of The Burl,” two tracks from their new album The Hunter, and now they’ve dropped another one via kaleidoscopic YouTube video. The song is called “Spectrelight,” and it’s closer to the mercilessly stomping Mastodon of the Leviathan era than those other two songs are. That’s the Mastodon era I like best, so I’m happy. Neurosis frontman Scott Kelly guests, and I can never discern that guy’s parts when he guests on Mastodon songs, but I’m always happy he’s there. Check it out.

  1. Totally cool and groovy.

  2. The production seems so muddy, and not any any good way. The vocals are too reserved. Even the drums sound less inventive. I really haven’t liked any of the songs from this album so far. I’m a little sad.

  3. Pretty good to hear from “the one metal band the indiesphere pays attention to for some reason”.

  4. Why are indie Hipster sites playing Mastodon? Doesn’t fit at all.
