Once More 'Round The Sun

Once More 'Round The Sun by Mastodon
Released: Jun 2014
Label: Reprise
On their sixth album in a dozen years, these acclaimed Atlantans continue on the rock-radio-friendly path plowed on 2011's The Hunter. Shadowed by easy-to-take vocals floating through Queens of the Stone Age's neighborhood, their metal sounds less extreme than ever. Art-rock intros help "Asleep in the Deep" and lengthy closer "Diamond in the Witch House" unfurl (Neurosis' Scott Kelly assists the latter). Monster mash "Halloween" trick-or-treats almost like Voivod circa Angel Rat, and "Aunt Lisa" builds to Georgia punks The Coathangers shouting an Alice Cooper-ish cheerleader chant.
