Mastodon take the “High Road” less traveled

Troy Mastodon Pic Fierce

Mastodon have released a new song “High Road”, seemingly because it leaked anyway. The swarthy jam is from their pending album Once Around The Sun. The tune is pretty standard in structure, with a steady chug reminiscent of a more hi-fi older Mastodon but with a big melodic chorus. It will probably sound even better live and dirtier than this.

I miss seeing these guys in shitty clubs but they couldn’t be more deserving of their popularity. And the bridge/solo section of this new jam is really epic and inspiring. You can’t hold these guys back from journeying to different modes of live wire synaptic rockery. Even with a more populist structure, they still sound crazier than any other metal band as big as they are.
