If you aren’t familiar with Mastodon you should be. They’re in the multi-faceted metal genre though I’m not sure of where they exactly fit in. At times they sound like Black Sabbath or Ozzy Osbourne’s solo work, but I hear elements of Tool and Alice In Chains on many of their songs as well. Needless to say, they’ve taken a great deal from the best sources and concocted a sound that’s heavy and memorable. I don’t know this for sure, but I think Nathan Explosion would call them brutal.
