More Info:Inarguably one of the most exciting new bands to form in the last ten years, Mastodon is an explosive, unbridled force. With an ageless magnificence and rich musical imagination, Mastodon's thundering musical muscle, talent and vast sea of ideas triumphantly unite on LEVIATHAN's staggering proportion, unstoppable momentum and anthemic roar wholly underlines Mastodon's vibrant spirit and majestic, heartfelt delivery.
''Leviathan'' is a concept album by progressive metal band Mastodon, released in 2004 by Relapse Records. The album is 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. Guitarist Bill Kelliher considers this album to represent the water element. - Wikipedia
