For me it's:

Crack The Skye > Leviathan > Blood Mountain > Once More 'Round The Sun > Remission > The Hunter

 

Once More... might overtake Blood Mountain the more I listen to it though.

 

I've spent since Monday trying to figure out what the opening to The Motherload reminded me of and I finally got it: March of the Yeti by earthtone9, which was the opener to their last album. It's got that same drum fill into an awesome rocking riff thing going on. Completely unrelated, but it really reminded me of it and it was bugging me not being able to figure it out.

maybe blasphemy but it's Leviathan > Remission > Blood Mountain > Once More 'Round the SunCrack the Skye = The Hunter for me

 

I've really never been able to get into CtS, not so much because of its progginess, but just because it lacks nearly everything I like about Mastodon

 

it riffs but the riffs lack power

 

plus the production/mix really bothers me, everything sounds so.. rubbery if that makes any sense at all

 

 

 

speaking of Mastodon, Remission deluxe reissue announced, going to be fully remixed and remastered by the original producer

 

timing is kinda disappointing because I just bought the album a couple months ago, but at the same time I honestly don't think it needs remixing/remastering so I have no reason to pick the reissue up anyway

 

 

 

also speaking of Mastodon: new song ft. Gibby Haynes will be available to download for free on September 8 as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program, and although it hasn't been announced yet I expect they'll follow through on their plan to release an EP of songs that didn't make Once More 'Round the Sun sometime this winter (whatever happened to all those song titles they announced? "Scent of Bitter Almonds"? "Buzzard's Guts"? "Northside Star"? "The Weight"? were they just changed or are they outtakes?)

 

it truly is the Year of the Mastodon

Well, I just have to completely disagree there =P I'm far more into what they were doing with Crack the Skye. The step up in progginess really sealed the deal for me.

 

The reissue sounds like a good opportunity for me to finally get Remission. It's the only one I'm missing and it's been a real pain finding a reasonably priced copy. For some reason their first three albums are hard to find here, even used copies online.

But then I also tend to try and avoid remasters unless they're definitely needed, so we'll see.

The Weight has to be a Motherload demo, idk about the other ones

and id like a physical copy of remission but if they ruin the mix I'll be upset because remission's sound is quintessential sludge sound imo

I think its my favorite out of all of their stuff

the production is so much better than I could have imagined, every single song just crushes. Kurt Ballou is a master of his craft

and they experimented a little, like on the first half of Moor with that odd, creepily whimsical piano, and the poppy chorus of Old Light (ft. my dude, the B-Fals aka Brian Fallon)

and the last lines of the album (not the last lines if you're a cool kid who got the deluxe edition) deserve special mention

"All I want is for everyone to go to heck
It's the last place I was seen before I lost myself
All I want is for everyone to come to heck
There we can be free and learn to love ourselves"

what a closer, man...


TL;DR 11/10 they delivered everything I expected from them and much more

just randomly stumbled across this absolute gem of an album, Ultra Silvam by a Swedish band called Ştiu Nu Ştiu. it was mixed by Kurt Ballou of Converge and mastered by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna, and the best way I can describe it is a mixture of gothic rock and post-metal with a singer who reminds me a lot of Chelsea Wolfe on some tracks.

 

like this is seriously good. I was completely enamored with it from the first track. might even be album of the year material.

"No, You Are Not Special" is such a jam. Wow.

 

I can definitely see what you mean from the Chelsea Wolfe comparison too. This is really good.
