Sunday RnR: Mastodon – Emperor of Sand

Mastodon-Emperor-of-Sand

Mastodon’s new album, Emperor of Sand, was released on Friday, and it’s a pretty good one. Conceptually, the album follows a character sentenced to death wandering the endless deserts. The band draws inspiration from several family members and loved ones who have suffered or are suffering from various forms of cancer. While the subject matter is quite dark, that doesn’t hold the band back from making some absolute bangers on the track list. While you do not have to listen to the whole thing, I don’t control your life, it is designed to be heard that way, so I won’t even mention what I found to be my favorite tracks on this album. Just have a listen and rock out.
