Emperor Of Sand finds Mastodon returning to a deeply imaginative and complex conceptual storyline which ponders the nature of time. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the band conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass.” Emperor of Sand is like the grim reaper,” says drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor. “Sand represents time. If you or anyone you know has ever received a terminal diagnosis, the first thought is about time. Invariably, you ask, ‘How much time is left?’”

“We’re reflecting on mortality,” adds bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders. “To that end, the album ties into our entire discography. It’s 17 years in the making, but it’s also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to draw inspiration from very real things in our lives.”

Emperor Of Sand was recorded at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, just outside Mastodon’s hometown of Atlanta, with producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Neil Young, AC/DC, Rage Against The Machine), who first worked with Mastodon on their 2009’s seminal album Crack The Skye.

Over the course of the band’s recorded output, they have fearlessly continued to push themselves towards greater creative heights. Each studio album has united an ever-expanding worldwide legion that have come to expect the unexpected twists and turns that have elevated Mastodon into one of the most respected and influential creative forces in rock music.
