Suggest a Mastodon album

Crawled out from a snot soaked moss laden rock and started listening to Mastodon. Became a fan pretty quick. I'm a fan of HoF,Sleep,Sabbath and The Sword.

Which album should I start with to get sucked into the void deeper?

Sweet! Great band

Based on those bands I would say Leviathan and/or Remission yeah. My personal favorite is Crack The Skye but I think it would be better for you if you grew into them via the earlier albums.

It's all a matter of preference. A lot of people say that crack the skye was the best album, but I didn't actually like it that much. I have Leviathan, which I've enjoyed a good bit. The Hunter is their most recent album and I liked that one the most. It's very different than their other albums, since it's much more of a stoner rock and less heavy than the other albums. I'm actually on fence as to whether or not I'm going to get a Mastodon album too. I was thinking Blood Mountain, since I know a few good tracks off of there. They have a sale on Amazon, so you can find them cheaper there.

None of them.

Where's dead-fish when you need him?

Remission and Leviathan are the only things Mastodon have done that are worth listening to. Don't believe the hype.

I remember back in the day when Mastodon was considered the poor man's Baroness, and now Baroness is gay.

Nah, this is the internet where everything and everyone is slightly worse than something someone else likes.

True...

Even so, Mastodon is good intro metal. I wouldn't call them very technical or revolutionary, but they got some fun/cool riffs.
