Just before entering the studio to record their upcoming seventh album, Mastodon completed the ‘Once More ‘Round the Sun’ tour cycle in Greece. I think that some fans had mixed feelings about the show; On the one hand a chance to see one of metal’s best current bands, but, on the other hand, the not entirely positive memories of their previous visits hanging in the air.

MASTODON's Brent Hinds has broken his leg in a motorcycle accident, it has been revealed.
The guitarist/vocalist posted a photo of himself laying in bed with a cast on his right leg and the caption: "broke my fucking leg starting my motorcycle goddamnit. sorry to all the shows I was about to play with gto and west and more and fiend without a face.lifes a bitch then you die. happy thanking !"

Mastodon officially announced that they are canceling their current tour, which had two dates in Greece,

Mastodon’s next album is going to be double with its first part written by Brent Hinds and the second by the rest, according to an interview he gave to Guitar World. “It’s shaping up to be a double album. One is an album I wrote myself and recorded with Brann and Troy during the Once More ‘Round The Sun sessions. My part is called Cold Dark Place – it has to do with a nasty breakup that I went through. I wrote some pretty dark, beautiful, spooky, funky, ethereal, melancholy music”, said Hinds. “The other guys are writing another album, which I haven’t even heard yet, so I can’t tell you what it sounds like”, he added. Mastodon are on tour during the summer with a show in Athens on August 30th…

If you watched Game Of Thrones fifth’s season 8th episode and wondered if you actually saw Mastodon as wildlings, then

- Minor spoiler alert-

Mastodon’s drummer, Brann Bailor, made a cameo on last night’s “Game Of Thrones” seventh season premiere that was aired in the States. Specifically, on the second scene of the episode where the white walkers march you clearly see Bailor among them. Remember that on the series previous season all three Mastodon members, τρεις Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds,Bill Kelliher, showed up as wildlings that were transformed to white walkers. In an interview last year Brent Hinds said that the band would return to the popular series, was that what he was referring to, or are we going to see them in more scenes in future episodes? It remains to be seen. Meanwhile, winter is here!

According to Apple's iTunes store in Australia, Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON will release their new studio album, "Emperor Of Sand", on March 31 via Reprise Records.
The track listing for the effort is as follows:
