Say what you will about the newer Mastodon sound but I for one am pumped for this release. 'High Road' is a decent enough lead single and the album artwork looks insane!

I might be missing something here but how did you make a Breaking Bad connection?

Ohhhhhhhhhh daaaaaaaaaamn. Expecting something really laid back and psychedelic from the looks of that artwork, don't disappoint me, you bastards.

Pretty much what cover art looks like.

The artwork is fantastic. If only the song they released was equally as good.
Apothecary - 29.04.2014 at 14:55  
I'm thinking this'll be continuing from the direction of The Hunter, but you never know. No two Mastodon albums have sounded alike thus far.
Ace Frawley - 29.04.2014 at 15:28  
Thumbs up for the album artwork. Can spend a bit of time just looking at all the detail and allowing your eyeballs to enjoy the array of colours. It's an ocular delight.

And that's one of the things I love about them. Even if I am disappointed by this album, I still may enjoy something they do in the future.

Very pretty and bad-ass album cover. Excited for this one!

Looks like a salad. Not really a fan of the art; too gaudy.

I wish more salads looked like that
I personally think it's a great artwork, but I'm a fan of this style

It looks a nice bit nicer with the saturation turned down

I love that album art. its a bit weird but its so detailed that i cant help but find it brilliant

and i read a comment somewhere, somebody saying that they need an apostrophe before round as it should be around and there actually is one on here
Lit. - 29.04.2014 at 18:11  
Scott Kelly strikes again I see.

Ocular overload maybe... I appreciate what the artist tried to do with it stylewise but to me the execution was a little too chaotic.... nevertheless probably better than the previous ones for Mastodon.
afu - 29.04.2014 at 23:10  
I am a little excited. They always do something interesting and different with each release.

Nope, just curious how a connection could be made. Nothing seemed obvious haha. Must watch more of it though, great show, but so many other great shows on TV yet so little time.

Been listening to that High Road song more today. I still can't get over how much the chorus sounds like the guy from Sahg!

Not to spam too much with off-topic stuff, but you must watch more! The best TV series I have ever had a pleasure to watch. Although I started watching only after the series ended. But once I started I went through all the seasons in like two weeks.

Can someone tell me who is singing that bloody chorus?? Troy or Brann? I see on the net different versions. Some say Troy, some say Brann.
deadone - 30.04.2014 at 02:12  
That cover nearly hurts my eyes to look at!

I don't mind it though. Very different.

It reminds me of a far more colourful version of Revocation's self titled album cover.

Cynic Metalhead - 30.04.2014 at 11:48  
I don't see any brilliance in cover art except people going apeshit over Mastodon.

More of a clown playing with his shinning objects than anything other thing. Too much strawberry.
Diverge - 30.04.2014 at 19:17  
I'm a fan of the artwork, although that Mastodon logo is ugly as sin.
Necdilzor - 30.04.2014 at 19:24

Before you said anything, I thought it was Troy. The harmony on the first and third lines are Troy and Brann. I still think Troy sings the solo bits, because of the kind of yelp it has sounds like him.
