On my second listen. Troy's voice sounds pretty good, and the riffs are awesome! :rocker:

I hope the rest of the album is better.

It's pretty good. It didn't grab me right away but I'm liking it more with each listen. Drums are great, vocals have definitely improved, and the riffs are good although not quite as good as a lot of their other songs IMO.

Not bad. I'll probably give the rest of the album a listen.

I'm not terribly impressed either, just 2 listens and one song though so I'll hold judgement.

:D Hey, I want more of a Leviathan/Remission sound here. They lied to us. It's just kind of a stripped-down Crack the Skye from my impressions. It's slow, but not slow and heavy. Or at least not as slow/heavy as their good slow/heavy stuff, like March of the Fire Ants or Trilobite. That's what I want. This... I don't know. It's lacking the crazy arpeggios/progginess of what I like in Blood Mountain, but it doesn't crush the room like a 10 ton gorilla. It's just... meh.

Hopefully they have some more punk-ish, must-circle-pit crazy fast songs, in the vein of Capillarian Crest or Aqua Dementia.

This is just one of fourteen tracks, so I'm sure you'll get what you want.

Absolutely love that first riff, and that middle section with the sweet solo. Troy's vocals are way too weird for me, though. When he sings "I cut off my tongue," he sounds exactly like someone else, but I can't place it at the moment.

One quick listen off You Tube and I can already say I love it. Troy's vocals sound great and I love the riffage. Reminds me of something off Leviathan.

I think Brann's singing? It doesn't even sound like Mastodon with him singing.

Eh... not really feeling it. They keep repeating that chorus, and it's so incredibly stupid. And that sounds like Brent singing to me.

Agreed Deathbound was awesome. But these other two songs haven't been anything great, just ok.

New song sounds great. I'm already convinced that The Hunter will be the album of the year.

Not what I was expecting, but I like it!

New song is good, but isn't what we were promised: heavy. I'm hoping they're just releasing the more accessible songs as singles. If the whole album is like the new song then I won't be disappointed, or amazed, but if most of the album is like Deathbound then this might be album of the year.

They set expectations way to high by including references to Led Zeppelin and Leviathan (the album that everyone likes/agrees is their best) when talking about it in interviews. That said I like the first 2 songs, but I'm not in love with them.

Definitely Brent singing. I like the song, but I'm still waiting eagerly for the rest of the material.. These probably are the two more "accessible" songs, as someone said.

The "inaccessible" songs on Crack the Skye were bloated wankfests, though, so let's bew careful about saying it's a good thing that these are the accessible ones.

Fair enough, but I should clarify - I mean nothing negative by calling these accessible. After a few more listens, I'm actually quite fond of 'Curl of the Burl.' Different, but killer. Stoked for the album - even more stoked for them to tour for it!

Sounds like Brent and Brann singing.

I really, really like it.

I've listened to it a couple of times, it's pretty good. It's still just really odd to me, it's just not a Mastodon-type song.

I only listened to it once, but I'm not digging Curl The Burl. It's just too "accessible" for me. I hope this is the only song of this nature on The Hunter. I definitely prefer Black Tongue.

I used to be the biggest Mastodon fan. Hell, Leviathan might be the second most influential album to me, ever. But I am not feeling any of these new songs. None. I'm just worried if there's gonna be ANY songs I like on it. Shit...

Very different, hard rockish, still, I like it, but prefer Black Tongue.

I like this much better than either of their last 2 albums' material.

I'm willing to bet that Mastodon's next tour will be a US tour supporting The Hunter.

black tongue is awesome. Curl of the Burl is alright, probably like a 7 out of 10 or so,it will probably grow on me as time goes on.
