5 Mastodon Crea­ture Lives (the hunter, 2011)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

No strangers to the realms of fan­tas­ti­cal be­ings and mon­strous beasts with mu­sic to match both, the most sur­pris­ing thing about the at­lantan quar­tet’s jour­ney into the murky depths of the ama­zon is how ge­nial it all sounds. taken from their stream­lined 2011 mas­ter­piece The Hunter, Crea­ture Lives may well be the sim­plest song in Mastodon’s cat­a­logue, the trippy synths and bliss­ful choral vo­cals writ­ten by troy San­ders and Brann Dailor for band­mate Brent hinds as a touch­ing trib­ute to his love of the 1954 Universal mon­ster clas­sic, Crea­ture From The Black La­goon.

CHOICE LYRIC: “I saw the crea­ture fall / Into the swamp from which he spawned”
