Everything comes in due time... Here is finally the long-awaited follow-up to their great debut Remission, released back in 2002. Two long years of intensive touring across the USA (mainly) have obviously sharpened their thirst for songwriting and their will to devastate our poor mistreated eardrums. Let's kill the suspense right now: this new offering, Leviathan, is far better than the aforementioned Remission. More varied also.

Blew me away in 2004, and still does it on regular basis. In my books their strongest, most accomplished album, having the perfect balance of finesse and raw power.

No matter how many times I listen to this album, and it's masterpiece Blood and Thunder, I crave it more.
Mastodon truly are the Beatles of Heavy Metal.

Can't believe I'm just now realizing that Neil Fallon is featured in Blood and Thunder. for being an uninformed Clutch fan.

Not only is this album totally epic, but the art for the case itself is absolutely spectacular. If you've only seen the picture shown above, and none of the art for the rest of the case--perhaps due to buying the album on mp3--you've done yourself a disservice. The entire case is gorgeous; a beautiful thing to own.

The more I listen to this, the more I enjoy it. I think this is one of those albums that is going to go down in my books as a total masterpiece; enjoyable to the last second.

No matter how many records I keep discovering and how amazing they might be I am sure this will remain atleast among the Top 10 of that decade.

They are indeed one of the truly amazing mainstream metal bands, if not anything else.

I would certainly choose Remission over this one, but I have to say that Hearts Alive is completely incredible.
