Crack the Skye is the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Mastodon, released on March 24, 2009 through Reprise Records. The album debuted at number 11 on the Billboard 200, selling 41,000 copies in its first week. In Australia, the album debuted at number 19. It had sold 200,000 copies in the US as of September 2010, making it one of their highest selling albums to date.
Released in 2009, Crack the Skye is Mastodon’s fourth LP and second for Warner Bros. The band’s third consecutive concept album, this one charts the journey of a paraplegic boy who astral travels too close to the sun and winds up in the body of Rasputin. Regarding the creation of the album, drummer Brann Dailor stated in an interview: It will be two and a half years. It’s everything we wanted to do as a band at this point.
Their next album Leviathan was a cornucopia of ominous clean tones, pentatonic riffs, 70s throwback vocals, and a fixation of all things mythological. Blood Mountain expanded on this legacy moving from the ocean to the mountains. Their beards grew as did their propensity for winding instrumental passages and analog production values. Now that Crack the Skye is here, Mastodon embrace prog, stoner metal, and the occult even more with ruminations of Rasputin and Black Sabbath vocals wailing out over the shred.
Crack The Skye, their fourth original studio album, mines subject matter from czarist Russia and astral travel to out-of-body experiences and Stephen Hawking's theories on wormholes for an unrepentantly heavy aural assault that will shake the heavens.
