Mastodon Blood Mountain on Vinyl LP

Mastodon's third album and major-label debut, the Matt Bayles-produced Blood Mountain isn't just an unconventional breakthrough that garnered the attention of nearly every major international music critic, press outlet, and curious listener in 2006; it's surreal, progressive, and unrepentantly heavy, shot through with peerless technicality and blinding imagination

Coming on the heels of albums based around water and fire, Blood Mountain draws inspiration from the Earth, and finds the members matching the visual narratives with pioneering arrangements and compelling melodies that reinforce the record's themes. Mastodon combines thrash, doom, prog, and psychedelic styles to concoct a unique, utterly original musical statement that is simultaneously entrancing, accessible, and devastating.

"Mastodon's earth-related concept album firmly places the Atlanta quartet amidst the musical elite, its technical prowess, fantasy-based storytelling and stealth complexities as beguiling as the band's uncanny ability to make it all accessible. Prog, blues, jazz and classical strains intermingle with the heavy thunder while, in accord with the members' metaphorical climb up a mountain, twin-guitar leads slide across ice shelves, hoary voices howl in the night and tempos grind against hallucinatory backdrops. A landmark effort."

-- Bob Gendron, Chicago Tribune, December 2006, Best Metal Albums of the Year (Blood Mountain ranked #1)
