Really looking forward to this. I thoroughly enjoyed their previous albums.

Well he HAS been on all of their albums since Leviathan. So it makes sense. He's more or less the 5th member of Mastodon at this point.

And they cut the album from 90 minutes to 60, and they just might use the cut 30 minutes for an EP.

I hope that they decide to do a deluxe edition that includes both the album AND the EP when the EP is released.

Also, the guy who did the artwork for their other albums isn't doing it. Instead, it's this guy, who apparently has done posters for several bands including Mastodon, as well as Melvins, Primus and Tomahawk.

After looking through the artwork that he's done I'm really looking forward to what this'll look like.
I also wouldn't mind getting one of those prints that are for sale. Specifically "Space Biker" since it looks fucking awesome.

Greedy bitches!

I've looked at some of this guy's art and it looks pretty good. I really liked their Paul Romano's artworks though. I think it fits their style a lot. Let's hope that Mr. Skinner here can do them justice!

Like Sean Malone in Cynic...

But talking about Neurosis, what albums would you recommend the most?

I'd recommend Through Silver In Blood, Times Of Grace, or Souls At Zero.

Also, from what I read, I'm not getting my hopes up that it will sound more like Crack the Skye.

I figure a lot of fans are probably kinda bummed by the news that he isn't doing it, but I think this guy will probably do a good job. I've seen a lot of posters for different bands that I thought could have been really good album covers. Never new the artists that did them, but I got a folder of really neat stuff that was done for a bunch of bands, mostly metal and stoner rock.

I've never listened to a whole album by them, but I've been wanting to get the Neurosis and Jarboe album. I loved what I heard from it.

Yeah, it was probably kind of a given.

Well, The Hunter's cover was not designed by Paul Romano, so I thought they had already parted way since then, and so that nobody was really expecting him to come back and do their next cover. Or maybe I missed some info?

No prob
Also. If you listen to Times Of Grace also listen to it with Grace by Tribes of Neurot because they're designed to be played simultaneously. Granted both Times of Grace and Grace can be played separately and give pretty much the same listening experience.

Jus Oborn did an interview with CVLT Nation recently. Here is a link if you're interested in reading it.

My favorite bits would be...

"Well, we have just completed our new LP. We worked on it solidly all last year and recorded it in October. I laid the vocals down in late November, then we finished up in Jan/Feb. It hasn’t got a title yet, but some song titles are ‘Time To Die,’ ‘Funeral Of Your Mind,’ ‘I am Nothing,’ ‘Sadiowitch’. It’s seriously fuckin’ heavy and dirty, but a departure from recent material production-wise…it’s more savage and distorted, but defined like the early Wizard.

We are gonna release it on our own imprint called Witchfinder Records, but it’ll be distributed worldwide, and properly this time. It’s gonna be pretty fuckin’ good actually, and reasonably priced, good quality and NOT limited. We wanna sell records, not create stupid eBay collectables.."

And

"What are Electric Wizard’s tour plans for 2014? Do you have any North American tour plans? Come to Vancouver, we have the best buds in the world!!

In Europe and the UK we are doing a bunch of festivals, then we will probably do a few select UK dates outside London. But yeah, a North American tour is planned for the end of the year and then maybe South America in the new year. Playing Canada is difficult..we hope to play there, but last time Mark & I were refused entry (eventually we went over another bridge in a taxi pretending to be tourists..haha)…but of course, bud is an important incentive."

I really hope that underlined part is happening. I've been wanting to see them live for quite awhile now.

It's been kind of slow recently, though. Which is kind of sad considering how much discussions we get on the general forum when we discuss metal bands...

These motherfuckers never lose their creative spirit. I'd just love to hear some agressive vocals Blood Mountain/Leviathan-esque.

I watched the Yellow Sea, which was a really good and intense South Korean thriller by the director of the Chaser. Crazy movie.

And I watched Safe with Jason Statham, which I enjoyed more than I expected.

Yeah I gotta agree with that. And Curl of the Burl was one of my favorite songs off of The Hunter.

Don't hate on it. It is very pop, but it still holds a sexy Mastodon aesthetic and I like the stoner rock feeling of the track.

Also, what are the best albums of 2014 so far?
