Featuring ex-members of Today Is The Day, bandmates Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher decided to return to their home in upstate New York to regroup. After completing various commitments with their other former band, Lethargy, the duo headed south to Atlanta, Georgia in early-2000 to start fresh again. Shortly after the move, the pair was fortunate to find Troy Sanders and Brett Hines, both experienced musicians in their own right. The newly formed quartet would begin to jam and write material, refining its unique and aggressive sound. Choosing the name Mastodon, the unit recorded a demo in mid-2000 and then embarked on a vigorous tour around the East Coast, as well as parts of Canada. The band's hard-hitting and intense live shows quickly caught the attention of Relapse Records, whom then added Mastodon to its extensive roster. Mid-2001 would mark the unit's first Relapse release, the "Lifesblood" CDEP, amid a summer tour. The release received impressive responses from both critics and fans of extreme music. Mastodon would soon release its debut full-length, "Remission," in 2002, which further displayed the band's impressive musical and technical prowess. Since its inception, the ensemble has shared the stage with many notable performers, including Queens of the Stone Age, Morbid Angel, Burnt by the Sun, and Martyr A.D. Combining the best elements of rock, hardcore, metal, and even some blues, fans of aggressive music will want to check out Mastodon. read less
