The Emperor of Sand is a Mastodon

Mastodon seems to be an anomaly. The metal four-piece, despite their more than 15 years of making music and their obvious skill, still manages to retain the rough hewn energy that carries a younger band through the first few albums. A lot has changed since their debut, Remission, to their latest, Emperor of Sand, but one thing […]
