Mastodon, 'Blood Mountain' (Reprise)

Blood Mountain
Critical Mass
Label: Reprise

by Chuck Eddy

These Atlanta thrashers have always sounded less clinical than the post-Slayer norm, and their major-label move provides sufficient space for excursions onto the dark side of the moon. But they're still not so great at turning their majestic heft and pushy paradiddles into memorable songs with hooks. And all the mythopoeic silliness about crystal skulls and Siberian divides would be a lot more fun if you didn't need song titles to alert you that it's there.
