5 stars Now HERE's a golliath of a metal album.

An excellent purchase by all means, this massive, epic sounding metal album is bliss to the ears, and a milestone in the modern metal scene.

Blood and Thunder opens the doors to a dark, scary, and mythical word of sweeping riffs that fit together like the world itself. All musicianship is brilliant, the riffage is brilliant and the percussion is frantic. Most important of all, the music and fantasy driven vocals work, and it works well.

Each track is exciting (even the lighter acoustic parts of just a few songs).

Mastodon is a metal band to keep an eye on (and with Blood Mountain, they proove that they are a metal power to be hailed by all)

get this album if you like metal, progressive might be a stretch, but i think the brooding guitar parts and odd guitar riffs are complex enough to put this album in the progressive history books.
