Hailed as the future of metal, Mastodon leaped into the mainstream with the release of their third album and Warner bros. records debut Blood Mountain. Produced by Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Isis,) and mixed by Rich Costey (Mars Volta, Muse), the twelve-track Blood Mountain finds Mastodon expanding on the sounds of their groundbreaking Leviathan set. Relentlessly heavy yet intricately crafted, Blood Mountain sees Mastodon expanding their progressive and avant-garde tendencies to create an innovative approach to contemporary metal. Blood Mountain features guest appearances by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on Colony of Birchmen plus Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler and Ikey Owens on Siberian Divide and Pendelous Skin respectively. Crystal Skull also features Neurosis vocalist Scott Kelly.
