For me, they're all about equal. Wavering Radiant, The Way of all Flesh, and Crack the Skye are masterpieces. If Isis was still around they all should have toured together!

These guys are all within my top 10 most likely; too hard to choose, thanks for the other option.

Gojira for me. From Mars To Sirius is the best album from among them.

Mastodon for sure ... Gojira are starting to sound very 'samey', and I don't like Isis at all

Isis for me, Wavering Radiant reached a level of coolness that I'm not sure it can be matched soon. The others are great too.

Very close between Isis and Mastodon, but I think I'll go with Isis (even though Leviathan is my favourite album from any of these).

i have to say isis, wavering radiant is one of my top albums and no other album of mastodon and gojira can reach such perfection. i really admire crack the skye of mastodon but is still not anywhere near wavering radiant. and  agree with JS19 about gojira, they kinda repeat themselves after a while.

Gojira is a fine band and Isis the masters of their genre... but Mastodon! Without a doubt!

Hateful atrocities. Destroy their worthless albums whenever possible.

Would you please go away. This poll is for people to decide which band they prefer, not just for 'hate' posts that serve no real purpose.

Gotta be Mastodon. I love me some Gojira and Isis are pretty good (though post-metal has yet to properly click with me), but Crack the Skye is just mindblowing, and Leviathan/Blood Mountain both appeal directly to my inner metalhead. 

Gotta admit, I don't really like Remission so much, though. It's a fine album, and good when I'm in the mood, but it's just... too harsh. I find it harder to listen to than death metal.

This. Wavering Radiant is in my top 5 albums of all time, but even without that album I'd still go for Isis. Don't get me wrong though, Gojira and Mastodon are both fine bands as well.

Indeed. Walter, your antics simply do not amuse anyone. Do you honestly believe that anyone is going to "destroy" their albums or simply start hating these bands because you tell them to? Either post something constructive or do not post at all. Thanks.

My parents predicted that I would like two bands called Mastodon and Isis, but Mastodon more, so they named me Mastosis.
