Info zu Blood Mountain (Remastered)

Seit dem 2004er Album »Leviathan«, das mittlerweile völlig zu Recht als Klassiker gilt, gehören Mastodon zu den einflussreichsten Hard’n’Heavy-Bands der Gegenwart. Warum? Weil sie das Beste aus den Siebzigern (Thin Lizzy!) mit modernen Sounds verbinden: Noise, Alternative, Thrash Metal, Hardcore – alles stand Pate. So natürlich auch auf »Blood Mountain«, ursprünglich 2006 erschienen, wo Mastodon diesmal noch eine Spur progressiver agieren. Oder anders gesagt: Dass eine ihrer Lieblingsbands/Vorbilder King Crimson sind, ist nicht zu überhören.

Robert Fripp und seine Mannen schimmern vor allem bei den Arrangements ständig durch – auch wenn Mastodon natürlich deutlich härter zu Werke gehen. Das Schönste ist aber: Trotz vieler Breaks und eines gewaltigen Anspruchs vergessen sie den Groove nicht: Der Großteil der Tracks geht sowohl ins Ohr und Bauch. Beweis dafür ist bereits der zügige Opener »The Wolf Is Loose«, der einen erstaunlich breakreichen Mittelteil besitzt. Anders das verträumt dramatische »Crystal Skull«. Hier regiert das altbewährte Mastodon-Rezept, das mit Siebziger Jahre-Einsprengseln gehörig aufgemotzt wurde und die eine oder andere Überraschung bereithält. Danach liefern sie ein Set ab, das vor Rhythmusbrüchen und Breaks nur so strotzt. Kohärent scheint auf den ersten Blick wenig bis gar nichts zu sein, trotzdem fällt der Zugang zu den Songs leichter als auf Leviathan. Die hervorragende Produktion und der eigenwillige oder besser formuliert eigenständige Sound tun ein Übriges, um den Hörer bei der Stange zu halten.

"Freunde gepflegten Noisecores, notorische Grenzgänger und Struktur-Totalverweigerer, die sich keiner Metalszene verpflichtet fühlen, finden hier im Schatten des Urviechs einen lauschigen Platz. „Blood Mountain“ ist auf jeden Fall eines der Alben, die einen Rezensenten in Sinnkrisen und Existenzängste bringen, den für das gerade Erlebte sind Wörter erst mal Staffage und schon fast verzweifelter Tatsachenbericht des nicht für möglich Gehhaltenden. In diesem Sinne…" (terrorverlag.com)

Mastodon
are an explosive, unbridled force. Possessing an uncanny song-writing sense, fearless innovation, unparalleled technical ability and a bottomless pool of raw talent and creativity, Mastodon are inarguably one of the most exciting new bands to form in the last 10 years.

In order to re-focus and regroup after leaving TODAY IS THE DAY in 1999, drummer Brann Dailor and guitarist Bill Kelliher opted to move back to their hometown of Rochester, New York. There, Dailor and Kelliher united with their former band Lethargy for a swansong show and demo. With the final chapter in Lethargy closed, the musicians moved to Atlanta, Georgia in January 2000 for a new start.

Only three weeks after arriving in Atlanta, Dailor and Kelliher met bassist Troy Sanders and guitarist Brent Hines at a High On Fire show that Hinds put on in his basement. Dailor and Kelliher had almost a decade of playing and touring experience together; Sanders and Hines had a half-dozen.

Within a few weeks of forming, the quartet's intense songwriting chemistry generated a myriad of hard-hitting songs. These songs merely touched the surface of the outfit's boundless well of ideas.

Under the name Mastodon, the group recorded their first demo in June 2000. With a new demo in hand, the band started a tireless tour schedule, covering most of the Eastern US as well as playing numerous regional dates supporting Queens Of The Stone Age, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse and many others. Mastodon's exceptional live performances impressed to such an extent that within months a contract was inked and the band welcomed to the Relapse family.

In the spring of 2001, Mastodon once again blazed through the Eastern U.S. with Eyehategod, Keelhaul and Burnt By The Sun. Mastodon blew the doors off every venue along the tour, leaving a whole new contingent of music fans awestruck and hungry for more. Their formidable live reputation helped land them a summer tour again through the East Coast and Midwest, where they linked up with The Fucking Champs. The tour lead them through innumerable festivals (Milwaukee Metalfest, Hellfest, World Series of Metal, and Mid-South Metal Fest) whose attendees witnessed an entirely new form of power and intensity.

In August, Mastodon's Relapse debut EP "Lifesblood" hit with adamantine force. "Lifesblood" illustrated the band's incredible technical prowess, memorable hooks, and earthshaking ability to rock that they had been delivering night after night in club after club.

Not only did "Lifesblood" put them on the map, it proved once and for all that Mastodon were their own band with a sound and vision that defied categorization.

Eager to continue moving forward, Mastodon honed their new material and entered Man Or Astroman?'s Zero Return Studios in Atlanta with producer/engineer Matt Bayles (Isis, Burnt By The Sun, Pearl Jam) in October, 2001 to record their first full-length "Remission".

If "Lifesblood" was just the eye-opening introduction, Mastodon certainly awakened the slumbering heavy music scene on "Remission". "Remission" bridges the soulful and technical as herculean yet incisive song-writing is effortlessly fused with an expansive and emotive tenor. Creative, distinct, graceful and strong, Mastodon's "Remission" features the traits of a benchmark release, a standard to which others will be held and ultimately measured by. Rarely is rock so pure and hard-hitting.

Songs such as the galloping "March Of The Fire Ants", the beautiful "Ol'e Nessie", "Mother Puncher"'s labyrinthine guitar workout, and the punishing "Workhorse" are nothing short of insta-classics, and the albums remaining seven tracks are not far behind.

The quartet dug into their roadwork hard upon the release of "Remission". First a two-month North American Tour supporting High On Fire, followed by strings of dates supporting Hatebreed, Clutch, and Five Pointe O followed. The quartet finished out a busy 2002 with a Japanese Tour with High On Fire and a quick Eastern US run supporting The Dillinger Escape Plan.

The Melville's 'Moby Dick'-based new album 'Leviathan', recorded in Robert Lang Studios and Litho Studios in Seattle under the aegis of producer Matt Bayles is scheduled for late August 2004.
