Description

    Art is a cyclical beast. The same can easily be said of Mastodon… Recognising the importance of life's omnipresent cycles on their sixth full-length album, Once More ‘Round the Sun. The band orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of its signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves.

    "Quite literally, Once More 'Round the Sun means a year-in-the-life," explains drummer Brann Dailor. "Lyrically, we were discussing things that happened to us recently, whereas in the past we looked further back for inspiration. It's about 365 days in this band. It was a tough and strange journey.

    "It's about being a man and trying to survive in the world. You're facing all of the crazy shit that goes along with it," adds Guitarist Brent Hinds. "You've got to just keep rolling. It's the daily grind everybody deals with. It's grinding and rewarding."

    2011's The Hunter saw Mastodon travel twice to Australia as part of the 2011 and most recently 2014 line up, building upon their ever faithful fan base with one of their most critically acclaimed releases yet and that legacy expands yet again with Once More ‘Round the Sun. Produced  by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice In Chains, Deftones, etc.) the album also features first single “High Road” which represents Mastodon's trademark sludge/stoner/alternative/metal style
