MASTODON // CRACK THE SKYE - CD
RELEASE DATE: 05/05/2009
Mastodon has taken hold of the leadership of the New Wave of Progressive Heavy Metal.
The band's 2006 major-label debut Blood Mountain spun off a Grammy nomination and earned Top 5 Best Album of the Year nods from Kerrang!, Revolver and Metal Hammer, and a Top 10 Rolling Stone.
Now Crack the Skye, it's fourth original studio album, mines subject matter from czarist Russia and astral travel to out-of-body experiences and Stephen Hawking's theories on wormholes for an unrepentantly heavy aural assault that will shake the heavens.
