it's poppy and more straight forward, but it works overall. You never know they could jump off into more prog based stuff like crack the skye again. Divinations off CTS was the first song released and was a pretty standard 3:30 rock block song. I'd prefer to see how it sounds in context with the full album when it finally sees the light of day.

I've been into these guys since remission, but my fave album is CTS so i'm not adverse to their lighter side.

Solo is amazing. Chorus is kinda annoying. And is it Brann singing?

I miss harsh vocals [2] This seems about on par with most of the Hunter to me, which isn't a bad thing by any means, though I long for that crushing Leviathan heaviness or some of that tasty Crack the Skye prog

I really like it. The vocals during the verses are awesome and the chorus is great. The bridge is also fantastic. I'm glad they're sticking with the shorter, punchier songs. Crack The Skye bored the hell out of me for the most part.

That solo is decent, but the rest is very bland. I'll be checking in once the album artwork is released. That is something they've always excelled at.

This pales in comparison to even the filler on Blood Mountain. I'd take This Mortal Soil over this
any day.

Song is okay. Sounds like Black Tongue. Chorus is great.
Both times I've seen them they have goofed the vocals way up and I assume they will do the same here.

this was okay, nothing special but nothing particularly bad either. I guess no Crack the Skye 2 any time soon.

also, I didn't know Brann could hit a Geddy Lee like vocal range.

this mortal soil rules i think you mean something more like siberian divide if you're talking bm filler pedro

pedro70512
April 17th 2014

I really liked Siberian Divide...which, I suppose, speaks to my point. The first four albums were so diverse in style, pacing, and intensity that every song was great in some way. I haven't gotten that with The Hunter or this -- like seriously, does anyone actually listen to Bedazzled Fingernails outside the context of the whole album? I hate to sound like one of those guys that only likes their old stuff, but that's where the Mastodudes are heading for me.

Emyay

i find the hunter to be really diverse as well. i actually do listen to bedazzled fingernails on its own. the only song i don't find myself listening to is blasteroid, but i find that song really works in a live setting.

The verse riff is sweet, but I'm not too keen on the vocals, and the chorus just sounds really bland to me. Still have massive respect for these guys, but I'm kind of worried about this record tbh

the weird thing is that in his interview bill said the song was 6 minutes....so i guess maybe they cut it down after that who knows, maybe this is just the single version. i doubt they would do that though

That beginning riff was so crunchy and promising, and then the vocals came in. I wish these assholes would put the fucking bong down and go back to making decent music, a.k.a. anything pre-crack the skye.

This is great. It's what Mastodon is all about. Sludgy and mean, which The Hunter, though is very good, it really wasn't a mean album. Listened to it 4 times and it's already growing more on me.

Emyay

this isn't that mean, and there's a couple "mean" songs on the hunter

blasteroid, spectrelight, black tongue

Have to face the fact that they are never going back to Remission/Leviathan days. I have accepted the new vocals. Song was good.
