Mastodon EP debuts in Top 50

Cold Dark Place, the newly released EP from progressive rock/metal band Mastodon, has debuted at No. 42 on the Billboard 200 chart, with a sales tally of roughly 11,000 in the United States. The four-track record is composed of songs recorded during sessions for the band's Once More 'Round the Sun (2014) and Emperor of Sand (2017) albums. Although all three of Mastodon's most recent full-lengths have debuted in the Top 10 on the aforementioned chart, a Top 50 finish for an EP of four recording session leftovers is nothing to sneeze at.

Who wrote this? Did you graduate highschool? Not to mention your information is wrong these were brent originals for a new release not 4 left overs. You're fcking shot..

This is a band for cocaine and psychedelics users. No one else cares.

garbage band. no one went to ozzfest 2005 to see them, arch enemy, soil work, in flames or the haunted. only real mid 00s american metalcore bands like obviously AILD, KSE, shadows fall, BYD, trivium and it dies today

Not to mention your information is wrong these were brent originals for a new release not 4 left overs. No, and as is clearly stated in the other paragraph and everywhere else, they are songs Brent wrote intending them to be a solo release, but the full band tracked them during the sessions for their last 2 albums. So, they're pretty much leftovers.

They are leftovers and should have remained that way. The band is headed downward and are out of ideas. I mean, 4 songs. What kind of dip shit band can't write 4 new songs? Only Mastodon.

tell you what though, this band sure is something to sneeze at. god damn boring.

nowhere near as good as As I Lay Dying. Mastodon ripped everything they know off of Tim.

Former coke heads turned craft brew alcoholics with a "passion" for the hobby are stoked. Now they have something to listen to while the commercials are running on their latest game of throne episodes.

What kind of dip shit band can't write 4 new songs? Only Mastodon. It's just a filler release. Their latest album is barely six months old.

eps are a chance for the band to try something new. wasted opportunity.
