Review by The Crow
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars So, I'll finally start to review the Mastodon's albums, a band that I've followed for years... This little EP, their first official release, is their least worthy work!

Mainly because the true style of the band would be later developed... While in this album the dominant key is death metal, with some trash and stoner rock elements, and a bit of experimentation. Ok, this mixture is the Mastodon's trademark, but in Lifesblood the direction of the tracks is not really clear, and a bit too caothic. The poor production don't help to improve the sensation this 5 tracks give. The vocals are really poor in comparition with later Mastodon's albums, and they are too synthetised and artificial.

But if you are a Mastodon fan, of course you'll find some interesting things here... Like I find. We Built this Come Death has some of this macabre and odd ambience that Mastodon can give to their songs. The little initial riff of Hail to Fire has the typical sharp and special Mastodon''s guitar sound, and Brann Dailor was impressive behing the drumkit yet... And of course, Battle at Sea is a really worthy track, a little Mastodon's classic.

Nevertheless, if you are new to the band, I recommend you to start with one of their full lenght albums (specially Leviathan or Blood Mountain).

Conclusion: if you are not a Mastodon's fan, you will hardly find anything interesting here... Because this album is maybe too rough, too death metal, and the later Mastodon's style is almost invisible here. I'm not speaking in terms of prog (are Mastodon really prog?), but in terms of quality and the original and unique sound that Mastodon give to their music in albums like the great Leviathan. So in my humble opinion, Lifesblood is only recommended for fans and completionists.

My rating: **1/2

3 stars Mastodon - Lifesblood 2.5

A typical debut EP.

It happens for nearly all bands to put out an immature debut EP, and Mastodon is no different. I think it is better than most efforts though since it already contained a nice new taste of metal, the only lackluster would be the result of some unfulfilling influences such as death metal and trash, however they weren't the abundance. The abundance would mostly be a straight 'metal' sound and some of the nice twists, tempo and time changes that Mastodon would conjure up on further releases.

One thing to take note of would be the virtuoso drummer Brann Dailor. Besides Buddy Guy, Brann can rip up a small drum set like no other, but can keep a nice simple beat, meaning he is not an over-indulgent musician. The guitarists take a lot of influence from classic rock artists, the largest being ACDC, as stated in interviews. They're the type that just likes to plug in and jam, and at this stage, it sounds just like that.

On later releases, the nice hard rock jams will still be there, but the band will open up quite a bit too nice experimentations and conjure up some strong sections and wonderful melodies. If there is one thing that this EP showed, would be promise.

3 stars Lifesblood is the debut EP from US experimental metal act Mastodon. Released before their debut album Remission, Lifesblood was the first taste of Mastodonīs unique sound.

The music is very raw and brutal but still with some clever moments that show where Mastodon would be a few years down the line. The first four songs are pretty short and direct brutal metal tracks while the last song Battle at Sea shows Mastodonīs more varied approach. Itīs also the longest track on Lifesblood with its 4:16 minutes playing time. Iīve read several places that the music on Lifesblood was death metal, but thatīs far from the truth IMO. Mastodon incorporates elements from many genres such as Thrash, hardcore, psychadelic and progressive rock, traditional heavy metal and very little death metal ( thereīs a riff in Welcoming War where I think it sounds a bit like death metal, but thatīs an exception)

The musicianship is excellent and as the case also is on later releases from the band, Brann Dailorīs drumming means everything for Mastodonīs sound. He is the very definition of Mastodonīs sound IMO. One of the best drummers in modern metal. The vocals are allright but they would get much better on later releases.

The production is a bit too raw IMO, but on the other hand it fits the music well.

Lifesblood is a great start for Mastodon. It put them on the metal map right away and itīs been going their way ever since which is of course deserved as they have been making better and better albums all the time. Lifesblood is a really good EP that doesnīt quite reach excellent and a 3 star rating is deserved.
