RIGHT NOW: STREAM MASTODON’S THE HUNTER
Yep. Here it is:
As of this writing, I’ve only had a chance to listen The Hunter all the way through once, but here are my initial impressions (and it’s worth noting that, as always, I am speaking for myself and only myself, and not anyone else at MetalSucks):
- It’s damn good.
- It’s not as good as Crack the Skye.
- The band isn’t gonna be able to pull these vocals off live.
- It’s still damn good.
Maybe I’ll say more after I’ve had a chance to listen to and digest the record a few more times — that’s just my gut instinct speaking.
Listen here, then weigh in with your own thoughts in the comments section below.
The Hunter officially comes out next Tuesday, September 27, on Reprise/Warner Bros.
