Mastodon have released another new song from Once More ‘Round the Sun, their sixth album and follow-up to 2011’s The Hunter. We’ve already heard “High Road,” and today, the band has revealed new track “Chimes At Midnight,” via a nifty animated visualizer video. (Slightly better than a lyric video, maybe?) Between these two songs, it seems that the group is continuing down their path of alt-metal and prog-rock fusion, which sounds just fine to these ears. In any case, if you need your morning fix of hook-laden hard rock and metal, then this is exactly the track for you.
Listen to Mastodon’s “Chimes at Midnight” below. Once More ‘Round the Sun is out June 24 via Reprise.
