I copped Leviathan but was unable to listen to it all b/c it sucked so bad.

It made me massively depressed- sort of like when Pig Destroyer released Phantom Limb...like it's not THAT bad, but Prowler as an album is so hard to live up to, then you have Terrifier which wasn't that bad, not as good as Prowler but beats the fuck out of Limb.

I was always surprised that people liked newer Mastodon.

I love newer Mastodon AND think Phantom Limb is the best PxDx album.

Converge
I didn't catch that leg of the tour, but I like The Bronx and hate Converge

But I'm still down to check this one out.
I actually find the King Crimson/Slayer thing to be pretty accurate when describing that album..some slower metal in there and you're set.

Although MASTODON's new album, "Crack The Skye", is a conceptual piece in the same vein as the band's previous releases, it is not about air but "ether." "The whole story has little to do with what the album emotionally is really about," clarifies Dailor. "But everything in the lyrics and the story is metaphors. We wanted to stick with elements and we wanted to do the 'ether' record. Ether is what the soul is made out of and it took a few months to connect all the dots."

Dailor goes on to explain the "Crack The Skye" concept: "There is a paraplegic and the only way that he can go anywhere is if he astral travels. He goes out of his body, into outer space and a bit like Icarus, he goes too close to the sun, burning off the golden umbilical cord that is attached to his solar plexus. So he is in outer space and he is lost, he gets sucked into a wormhole, he ends up in the spirit realm and he talks to spirits telling them that he is not really dead. So they send him to the Russian cult, they use him in a divination and they find out his problem. They decide they are going to help him. They put his soul inside Rasputin's body. Rasputin goes to usurp the czar and he is murdered. The two souls fly out of Rasputin's body through the crack in the sky(e) and Rasputin is the wise man that is trying to lead the child home to his body because his parents have discovered him by now and think that he is dead. Rasputin needs to get him back into his body before it's too late. But they end up running into the Devil along the way and the Devil tries to steal their souls and bring them down…there are some obstacles along the way."

The title track, "Crack The Skye", features vocals by Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS. "We heard Scott's voice all over that track," Dailor says. "It's really NEUROSIS-sounding and then when it became the title track, in particular vocally and lyrically it had a lot to do with Skye so it made it even more perfect that Scott would be doing the verses on it just because he is very familiar with that tremendous loss, suicide, stuff like that…"

Honestly sounds like Mastodon smoke WAY too much pot. Not a very intriguing story from my point of view.
