The new song and the previous one are '80s metal worships, which is awesome.

for one, High Roads grooves live. they played it last friday when I saw them at an open fields day in Stockholm and it brought the metuhls.

i think youre overthinking my comment, its not meant to be taken seriously. im implying that theyre assholes for releasing a song we've all pretty much already heard instead of something new.

Chimes sounds much better here than it did when they played it in Seattle a few weeks ago. That might be because I've consumed considerably less beer than I had that night...

Looking forward to the album!

Bit underwhelmed. Will probably just listen to High Road before the album is out now. Mastodon songs often sound better in the context of the album they belong to.

@OldSport: the vocals were pretty damn on key when I caught them. good shit all around. had fun surfing them crowds as well.

song is sweet.
They still wont be able to pull the vocals off live though. Thats probs why they use that A tuning so much, easier to hit the notes.
This and new Opeth can't come soon enough.

This and High Road both kicked ass live. They put on a great show, too. Surprisingly energetic... Troy was running around like a madman and getting the crowd into it.

that's the thing about mastodon...sometimes they're energetic as hell and the vox are on point, and then there's other times when they just stand still and can't hit any of the notes

last time i saw them was the best i've ever seen them, so maybe they're becoming more dedicated to it. or maybe brent is just a little soberer now

he was so messed up the first time I saw them they turned him down, second time they were more focused and while the
vocals were better they still kind of sucked. The playing was tight though.
Brann brings it live every time though, his drumming is beastly.

I feel like the last two albums have had really thick production. Blood Mountain and Crack the Skye were really intricate sometimes...the creepy guitar lines in Siberian Divide and mellow, swirling organ of The Czar are gone in favor big slabs of radio-friendly crunch. I want Matt Bayles back.

Fantastic tune, literally dropped my jaw with this one. Wasn't into High Road's mix of sludge riffs and the unfitting poppy chorus that made the song suffer of uncohesiveness. But this, dudes didn't rock as hard since Crack The Skye.

My only problem is the chords in the verse (not that cool pull off stuff) remind me of Scott Kelly's bridge in Spectrelight. They also appear in similar in High Road.
I'm worried this will be the first "good" mastodon album instead of the usual great.

Personally I thought the main riff was boring, and they just played it over and over the whole time.

Idk what all of you guys are smoking but I'm really digging High Road more than Chimes. High Road had a much sweeter groove and cathier chorus.

I think the vox kill this band for me. It's kinda like Anvil; killer music and really sub-par vocals.

Vox only bothered me on Live at the Aragon. Brent ruined "The Last Baron" in particular.

They need to go back to their old vocals, e.g. Leviathan and Remission. I get too much of a Ozzy vibe from most of Brent's vocals (not in a good way either) and I miss Troy's yells/growls.

that song was way better than anything off the Hunter, i'm impressed with how slightly above average this is, what a step up good going mastodon

if the rest of the songs maintain this level of mildly decent quality we should really be in for an extremely mildly tolerable album boys
