Mastodon release new album artwork

Popular Atlanta prog-metallers Mastodon have released the cover art for their upcoming fifth studio album.

With the band last month settingThe Hunter‘ as the title for the new material, the quartet have now unveiled the release’s artwork.

"It doesn’t seem as proggy. There’s moments, but it seems more riff-oriented. It seems a little more stripped down. [2004’s] ‘Leviathan’ was a little more stripped down, and it feels like that to me. Everything always changes once you go in the studio, but at the moment it seems like a really super-heavy Led Zeppelin or something. It has a lot of that [John] Bonham-esque groove to it, but really heavy and dark. I really like playing like that, and when it goes into those parts, I’m psyched," Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor told Noisecreep about the new album previously.
