Atlanta’s Mastodon unveil ‘Emperor Of Sand’; a technical, stormy mix of doomy metal and rock, with melodic singing and a good dose of grooviness added to the mix too. It’s an interesting concoction. The band have found themselves at a crossroad with fans as of late, with more mainstream-esque records being too tame and ‘safe’ for some. Yet, ‘Emperor Of Sand’ has a brilliant tone both musically and lyrically, and sees the band find their innovative streak once again.
