Mastodon's "The Hunter" Cover Art Revealed!

Mastodon is set to unleash their fifth studio album titled "The Hunter" this October. The majority of the album was recorded at Doppler Studios in Atlanta, Georgia with producer Mike Elizondo. The drums were tracked at Sound City Studios, which is were Nirvana recorded their hit album "Nevermind". Some confirmed songs are:

- "Blasteroids"
- "The Octopus Has No Friends"
- "Stargasm"
- "Curl of the Burl"
- "All the Heavy Lifting"
- "The Sparrow"
- "The Ruiner"
- "Dry Bone Valley"

Here is the album cover of Mastodon's "The Hunter":

"When you listen to the songs, they don't sound as 'fun' as we perceive them to be, I guess; it's still pretty extremely heavy material. We had a few songs that were kind of, not left over from 'Crack The Skye', but just stuff that we wanted to be on that album, but that album kind of took on a whole different thing of its own and there were a few stragglers that were super-heavy and crazy that didn't make it, and we finally got to put them on this record. And then we wrote a whole bunch of brand new stuff. There's, like, 14 songs that we recorded. And it's sort all over the place — a lot of different sounds. Some straight-up classic-rock-sounding songs, straight-up death metal-sounding songs and some completely bizarre, weirdo rock songs that we're not really sure what they are, but we love them." - Brann Dailor (On Metal Hammer)

Here is the NEW video by Mastodon for "Deathbound" (previously unreleased song from "Crack the Skye"). The song is part of the ten-week 2011 "Adult Swim Singles Program (Click to download the song)."
