Crack The Skye, Mastodon’s fourth studio release, comes as the band’s first album since 2006’s critically acclaimed Blood Mountain. In continuing the group’s tradition of approaching their albums with unique concepts, Crack The Skye loosely follows the absurdities Czarist Russia. A change of pace from the band’s previous release however, Crack The Skye as only seven tracks and a running time of roughly 50 minutes. Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Rage Against The Machine, Pearl Jam, AC/DC), Crack The Skye was recorded in Atlanta’s Southern Tracks Studios and features guest vocals from Scott Kelly of Neurosis on the title track.
