Blood Mountain is the upcoming third full length studio album by metal band Mastodon. The recording of the album finished in April 2006 and it is scheduled for release in August 2006.

"It's about climbing up a mountain and the different things that can happen to you when you're stranded on a mountain, in the woods, and you're lost," explained Dailor. "You're starving, hallucinating, running into strange creatures. You're being hunted. It's about that whole struggle."

Guest contributors to Blood Mountain include Scott Kelly of Neurosis and Mars Volta keyboardist Ikey Owens and frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala, who sings on "The Siberian Divide."

* "Circle of Cysquatch"
* "Hunters of the Sky"
* "The Sleeping Giant"
* "Bladecatcher"
* "The Colony of Birchmen"
* "Pendulous Skin"
* "The Siberian Divide" (featuring Cedric Bixler-Zavala)
* "Capillarian Crest"
* "Hand of Stone"
* "Crystal Skull"
* "The Wolf Is Loose"
* "This Mortal Soil"

Mmmm, I can't wait till the day it is released it sounds very interesting especially with the guest contributors.

I´m waiting for this. Seeing their progression from lifesblood to remission to leviathan, i don´t know what to expect from them, maybe more progression?

Mastodon - Blood Mountain Cover Art Available :

A member of BW&BK's BraveBoard has figured out the Mastodon cover puzzle and has posted it at this location. The US US metallers have completed their new album, Blood Mountain, which will be available this summer via Warner Bros.

Nice cover art, but somehow reminds me of Sabbat's History of a Time to Come. It must be the amtlers doing that to me.

It´s a cool art but seems "old"...but is enigmatic

Awesome sludge/prog, Really like both lp releases and am Excited to hear the new album, especially sincw S.K. is involved.
Endoftherainbow - 27.07.2006 at 20:28  
I'm really excited for this album especially because of that collaberation with the Mars Volta that's going to be a sick song.

I got it a bit "early" ... and I'll go ahead and say... Album of the Year 2006, there will be nothing that can compete with this.

Also, tracklist is wrong - correct one is:

The Wolf Is Loose
Crystal Skull
Sleeping Giant
Capillarian Crest
Circle Cysquatch
Colony Of Birchmen
Hunters Of The Sky
Hand Of Stone
This Mortal Soil
Siberian Divide
Pendelous Skin
(Hidden Track)

This album is certainly one of THE contenders for album of the year like Meuterei said.
It is on par with and at times better than Remission. Leviathan was also good but not as good as Remission and this one IMO. This album is more focussed and really drives the point home.
Endoftherainbow - 11.08.2006 at 16:53  
Blood Mountain is such a kick ass album. It's definently going to be one of the top metal albums of 2006 there's no doubt about it in my mind. I think it's possiably their best album so far.

@Meuterei that hidden bonus isn't a real song I don't think.
