The Contortionist is an American progressive metal band, whose third studio album, Language (2014) rose to the 52nd position in the Billboard 200 charts and broke Top 10 in the Hard Rock chart for the same publication in their home country.
Mastodon have been around for the better part of two decades. During that time, they’ve grown to become a generational icon. They are one of the -if not the– most recognizable names in metal. After three years since Once More ‘Round the Sun (2014, Reprise), they are back with their eighth album, Emperor Of Sand (2017, Reprise). And boy, is it addictive.
