2017 is the year for Mastodon. Earlier in March, they released Emperor of Sand, which made it to one of Gojira’s Joe Duplantier’s favorite metal albums of all time. The LP wasn’t enough for these Atlanta progressive metallers, and today, their new EP Cold Dark Place has arrived. Additionally, while we still have free streaming, you can listen to it in its entirety below as well as purchasing it here. The band’s fall leg of their tour with Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles is continuing on starting next week as well. And there will be a vinyl version of this EP at some point, although at this point, it’s only available digitally.
