Mastadon
Lifesblood (Relapse)

By: Jeb Branin

On the "Victory" and "Warrior" albums the almighty death metal gods UNLEASHED practically created a new flavor of metal by combining classic death with hook-laden straight-forward hard rock ala AC/DC. For some reason the sound never caught on... until now. MASTADON have taken the idea of merging death metal and precision hard rock and perfected it. Considering this band consists of two former members of TODAY IS THE DAY teamed up with ex-LETHARGY and ex-SOCIAL INFESTATION members this accomplishment shouldn't come as much of a surprise. There are only five songs on here to whet your whistle but MASTADON pack an full length CD worth of power into those five songs so steal your mom's checkbook and head down to the record store.
