Crack the Skye, the new opus from the Atlanta, Georgia quartet is an absolutely stunning release.

The band continued the sort of 'elemental' theme that has been present in their last couple releases, Remission (Fire), Leviathan (Water, duh), and Blood Mountain (Earth). Now, with Crack the Skye, the supposed fourth element, Air is represented.

they dont look like ordinary musicians and what do you think about the album ?

Pretty much what Marcel said. Not only do plenty of musicians in the stoner scene look like the Mastodon boys, but their fans also dress the part.

As for the album, I love it. Used to think not so highly of it, but then I stopped being a bitch.

This is a special album for me. It was my first real concept album and opened the door for me to progressive music in general. I have heard it performed live twice, each time a mesmerizing experience. Spectacular album all around.

God fucking damn the title track is incredible

I do really like the albums that came after this album, but none of them can really compare to the inspiration so fully on display in this album; 00s Mastodon was something else
