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?

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

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.

They're all pretty boring.

High On Fire >>>>>>> Mastodon.

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.

Spot on really. Nothing revolutionary or particularly mind-blowing but Crack the Skye is good fun

I love Oblivion... they need to stop trying to be progressive and just write cool pop songs

1. Blood Mountain (for me, it has the perfect mix of their heavy, sludgy early sound and their increasing progginess)
2. Leviathan
3. Crack the Skye (very close in quality to Leviathan, imo, and their proggiest album)
4. The Hunter (more straightforward at many times, as well as more pop-influenced and hook-oriented, but still damn good)
5. Remission (also a very good album; their heaviest and most dissonant)
