It's probably one of the more poppier songs they have done...but man is it catchy and sounds fun as
hell.

I'm so looking forward to this. Crack The Skye turned me on hard to Mastodon and The Hunter only re-enforced it.

P.S.- I do own Blood Mountain but I haven't really listened to in depth yet.

Snippet sounded a little too poppy for me, but Chimes At Midnight is fucking awesome so I still have faith that the new one will be good.

oh damn that Brann singing bit in the end! That sounded good. Poppy vocals but very classic technical mastodon instrumentation circa Blood Mountain in my opinion.

Will be awesome. I love everything they've done. The Hunter wasn't my favorite from them, but it was still amazing.

Blood Mountain was probably their best for me. It was the album that got me into them, for most it tends to be leviathan.
Blood Mountain was their most spazzy release but CTS they really got the idea of melody.

Has some of Troys best bass tones and playing on it.
Still it hasn't kept me entertained after time. I feel like I overplayed when I first heard it.

I've tried to listen to crack the skye but cant get into anything other than oblivion

where as IMO theres not a bad song on The Hunter, I think once more round the sun will be more like the Hunter than CTS. Brann does some awesome vocals on dry bone valley as well. Im stoked on the album first one ive ever pre ordered.

I love all this argument over which album is the best/favorite. Really speaks to how Mastodon keeps up the quality while changing their sound every release.

Mastodon was one of my favorite bands from about 2003 until 2007ish, Blood Mountain really grew off after about 6-12 months and I just got into other styles of music. Crack the Skye just reinforced that felling, the overt retro-prog of that album turned me off at the time (I've since come to appreciate it a bit more). Hunter really brought me back into the fold.

They were great when they were doing really manly sludge (and Remission/Leviathan is still my favorite incarnation of the band's sound), but man they really pull off the mainstreamish, traditional, almost "fun" heavy metal sound better than any other band today. They're the only band I know of that's capable of stepping up and taking Metallica's 80s and early 90s throne as the ones
that bring metal to the masses with integrity.

My take on the snippets (and what else I've heard from the new one) so far: it sounds awesome. A refining and enhancing on what they brought to the table with Hunter. Can't wait.
