Mastodon - _Lifesblood_
(Relapse, 2001)
by: Brian Meloon (6 out of 10)
Mastodon is a relatively new band from Atlanta, GA, featuring drummer Brann Dailor and guitarist Bill Kelliher formerly of Lethargy [CoC #4, #14, #51] and Today Is the Day. They're joined by Social Infestation bassist Troy Sanders and guitarist Brent Hines. As you'd expect from such a group of experienced musicians on a label like Relapse, this is a high-quality release, with good production and solid playing. Unfortunately, the music isn't anything particularly special. It's straightforward industrial- and death metal-tinged thrash, not overly technical, brutal or original. In other words, it fits perfectly into Relapse's roster. This is another technically good release, but ultimately, it is rather average material.
