Atlanta progressive metal act Mastodon keep teasing fans with new information about the record they’ve been in the studio for months now, working on. The more I hear about the record, the more excited I become. I can’t explain it, but I want to give Mastodon another chance. If this next LP doesn’t massage my metaphoric prostate, I’m done.
The Hunter, the follow-up to Crack The Skye, will — the band revealed today — feature the songs “Stargasm,” “Curl of the Burl,” and “The Octopus Has No Friends.”
The band recorded the effort at Doppler Studios in Atlanta with producer Mike Elizondo, and it now appears that the band will be releasing it in October. No official release date has been set, but October is the month they’re shooting for.
Other songs on The Hunter include “The Sparrow,” “The Ruiner,” “Blasteroids,” and “All The Heavy Lifting,” which is allegedly — quite literally — just about lifting heavy stuff.
