No. 17: Mastodon, ‘Remission’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Mastodon, 'Remission'

Before Mastodon went on to hunt down the white whale, the Georgia crunch-sludge quartet released their debut masterpiece, ‘Remission,’ in 2002.

The album helped solidify Mastodon as one of the 21st century’s most important metal acts, boasting multiple opus’ such as ‘March of the Fire Ants,’ ‘Mother Puncher,’ ‘Where Strides the Behemoth’ and ‘Crusher Destroyer.’ To this day, no other band sounds quite like Mastodon, although interest in underground Southern metal is now at a peak, thanks in part to ‘Remission.’
