MASTODON – Hushed And Grim – (Transparent) 2LP
(slightly damaged top right and bottom right corners) / esquina superior derecha e inferior derecha ligeramente tocadas)
Mastodon’s anxiously-awaited ninth full-length album, Hushed & Grim, released on October 29, 2021 via Reprise Records. Over the past year, the group recorded the album in their hometown, collaborating with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel) behind the board. As their most ambitious body of work to date, it consists of 15 tracks, surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four musicians. At the same time, an atmosphere of loss, loneliness, and longing permeates through the trio of cathartic vocals as they musically say goodbye to old friend, confidant, and longtime manager, the late Nick John, by architecting a magnum opus that bears the influence of his eternal memory.
