The third full-length studio album by the American heavy metal band. Like Mastodon's previous studio work 'Leviathan' (2004), 'Blood Mountain' is a concept album. According to bassist Troy Sanders, 'It's about climbing up a mountain and the different things that can happen to you when you're stranded on a mountain, in the woods, and you're lost. You're starving, hallucinating, running into strange creatures. You're being hunted. It's about that whole struggle'.
