The album that got me into Mastodon was Remission. The album that is often listed as their best work: Remission.
In August, Relapse will release a “super-deluxe” version of the band’s 2002 full-length debut.
On August 5, to be precise.
The record has been fully re-mixed by original producer and engineer Matt Bayles and remastered by Ed Brooks.
The artwork is different, too.
A new booklet will feature 25 pages of previously unreleased artwork that Paul Romano created for the record.
A 2xLP vinyl box set of the super-deluxe version is being prepared alongside the CD and will be limited to 2,000 copies with an etched D-side.
Mastodon’s new album Once More ‘Round The Sun hits stores June 24.
