Atlanta’s quartet Mastodon has been at it over a decade with their brand of heavy rock. “The Hunter” is their newest release showcasing 13 tracks of mid-paced tempo, dirge driven guitars and vocals that almost mesmerize the listener, in this case, me. The musicianship here is pretty strong and the band tend to go with the flow on “The Hunter”. These guys are pretty good at this style of heavy rock and play their instruments with a lot of conviction.
Mastodon surely have a sound all their own, unfortunately their style of rock is not my cup of tea. This is not to say they stink, but it’s something that does not rock my boat within uncharted territories.
Check it out, if you’re into groups like Disturbed, Kyuss or High On Fire, this just might be your slab of eardrum crushing rock.
