3 stars Mastodon is one of few modern bands that still create awe-inspiring concept albums. Leviathan, being based on the book "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville, sets a very heavy mood with track one "BLOOD AND THUNDER" but the album steers in a completely different direction by track three "SEABEAST", it definitely becomes more progressive, and shows the raw talent that mastodon possess. This album, although a difficult listen at first, becomes one of mastodon's most interesting works to date. The near 14-minuet epic, hearts alive is absolutely flawless and really gives off a genesis vibe while being, obviously much heavier. Although this album is very good, it's obvious that mastodon can amount too much more, and hopefully in the coming years will release more progressive music, because the only major flaw with this album is the sludge metal songs.
