Mastodon - Crack The Skye album FLAC

Released in 2009, Crack the Skye is Mastodon’s fourth LP and second for Warner Bros. The band’s third consecutive concept album, this one charts the journey of a paraplegic boy who astral travels too close to the sun and winds up in the body of Rasputin. Regarding the creation of the album, drummer Brann Dailor stated in an interview: It will be two and a half years. It’s everything we wanted to do as a band at this point.

But Crack the Skye is an awesome display. The new sound is summed up in the 13-minute prog-rock epic The Last Baron. It begins with steely guitar-picking and ominous swirling chords, then explodes into a midtempo march with wildly eddying drums and - for these Godzilla growlers - some startlingly melodic vocals. Skye is a blur of themes. It’s the group’s ether record, following the fire-water-earth sequence of its first three, so there are unmoored souls moving through space. Ultimately, Mastodon are less about basement bong-circle storytelling than about extreme-sports musicianship, whether it’s drummer Brann Dailor’s churning toms and cymbals, Troy Sanders’ rushing bass runs and keyboard atmospherics, or the hydra-headed guitar outbursts of Hinds and Bill Kelliher. Mastodon are less willfully eclectic than the Mars Volta, less high-concept than outfits like Pelican.

First off, a warning: the best way to encounter Mastodon's Crack the Skye for the first time is with headphones. Reported to be a mystical - if crunchy - concept record about Tsarist Russia, this is actually the most involved set of tracks, both in terms of music and production, the band has ever recorded. Ambitious" is a word that regularly greets Mastodon - after all, they did an entire album based on Moby Dick - but until now, that adjective may have been an understatement.
