Since their first release, Remission, Mastodon have evolved faster than any other band of the first decade of the 21st Century. Hard to define, their sound is a modern mix of Sludge/Hardcore/Metal/Psychedelic/Prog-Rock. The Hunter is an intriguying album in its simplicity and beauty of production. The raw aggressive sound is still there but the structure of the songs matured in a good way. Another interesting aspect of their music is the fact that there is always place for experimentations, listen to The Creature for example. An album that grows stronger with every new listen and that is definitely Mastodon’s most atmospheric offering to date.
