5 stars Mastodon's third album is without a doubt the album of the year for 2006. This band has been called the new Metallica by many metal publications, and I have to agree. There has not been a metal band as exciting and groundbreaking as this since the glory days of Metallica in the 1980s.

This band is a beautiful blend of thrash style metal and progressive rock. The riffs are outstanding and the musicianship is jaw droppingly good. Drummer Brian Dailor is in fine form here, cementing his spot as metals premier drummer.

This is one album with absolutely no filler, songs like 'The Wolf is Loose', Sleeping Giant' and 'Colony of Birchmen' are instant classics. A modern day classic.

Vatreni | 5/5 |
