Reprise releases “Emperor of Sand” by Mastodon
Here’s new music from Mastodon. Their seventh album overall (and first in three years) is Emperor of Sand, which shows a return to their hard sludge roots after quite a bit of proggy fun on Once More ‘Round the Sun and the Hunter. Emperor of Sand is a concept album about a man lost in the desert and finding his way both within and without himself after being sentenced to death. According to interviews with the band, Emperor of Death was inspired by cancer diagnoses of loved ones. It’s available through Reprise, iTunes, and other media.
