Listening booth — Mastodon, “Black Tongue”

Mastodon - The Hunter

I really should know better by now than to predict how much I’ll like an album based off one song. I was certain Mastodon’s last album, Crack the Skye, would be a total face-melter, but I was sadly wrong. But I do have renewed hope for their upcoming LP, The Hunter. Why? Check out the first single, “Black Tongue.”

Aw yeah! This sounds like the Mastodon I love – heavy and vengeful, but still melodic. The Hunter is out September 27.
