Staff review by

Mastodon is back!!! Blood Mountain could be one of the most anticipated Relapse albums since the Suffocation come back and finally we have the chance to hear what these guys are up to now. My hopes were really high as when I first heard this band (with their album Remission ) they shocked me like no other band has shocked me before. So here's my objective review about their new record.

Rating: 9 With time I'm liking this album more and more. My favorite one from Mastodon, for sure.
Saw them live yesterday, "Crystal Skull" was a party

  Full of half-baked ideas and songs that go nowhere, but also contains a few surprises.

Rating: 10 In my opinion, their best album. I enjoy literally every song, but probably my favorite is Siberian Divide.

Rating: 8 I don't know if I'd call this their best album, but it's definitely their best drum-wise. Brann Dailor is simply a monster on this one.

I still find Remission their best by far on all fronts.
