    Have you guys checked out Mastodon's latest album? If so, what do you think? I fell away from Mastodon a bit when they released The Hunter. I thought it was a good album, but it just didn't do it for me like Leviathan and Crack the Skye did. I happened across Emperor of Sand when it came out because I worked in the media department at Best Buy at the time, so I gave it a listen while I worked and I was blown away. The first track hit me and I thought "Oh yeah, this is Mastodon", but yet singles like Show Yourself have a significantly different sound than I'm used to from the group.

    Give it a listen if you're interested:

    Mastodon is one of my favorite bands of all-time. And I also kinda stopped listening to them after "The Hunter". The next one was also not that good for me, but the "Emperor of Sands" is fine I guess. Not the usual Mastodon yet, but you can see that they are experimenting a lot, which is fine. I like Roots Remain and Jaguar God from this one a lot.
