Mastodon – Iron Tusk


Mastodon – “Iron Tusk”; taken from the album Leviathan – in stores now via Relapse Records.

Leviathan is a concept album by progressive metal band Mastodon, released in 2004 by Relapse Records. The album is loosely based on the Herman Melville novel Moby-Dick, with the songs: “Iron Tusk”, “Blood and Thunder”, “I Am Ahab” and “Seabeast” released as singles. Three magazines awarded it Album of the Year in 2004: Revolver, Kerrang! and Terrorizer.

Leviathan was also released with an Audio DVD in a limited edition set with a black and gold slipcase. The album brought Mastodon great critical acclaim and, thanks to the ensuing tour, a considerably larger fan base. Leviathan had sold 103,000 copies by September, 2006.[citation needed] Guitarist Bill Kelliher considers this album to represent the water element.
