Mastodon – Emperor of Sand

Mastodon – Emperor of Sand

Released March 31st, 2017


Emperor Of Sand stands as the best full-length example of their attempts to marriage their stoner riffs to their prog interests. As a result both the disgruntled diehards who prefer “the early stuff” and an increasingly large mainstream rock contingent will doubtless be delighted to find something they like in the straightforwardly melodic fare that makes up much of the band’s seventh album.
