Mastodon - Emperor of Sand (Picture Disc)


Mastodon - Emperor of Sand (Picture Disc)

£25.00 £29.95

Every living creature must face the will and judgment of time. Ancient Greeks personified time in the form of the titan Kronos, father of Zeus, and ancient Egyptians celebrated Heh as an abstraction of endless years. Famously, William Shakespeare lamented humanity's immutable fate as "time's subjects" in Henry IV. Mastodon ponders the nature of time on their eighth album Emperor of Sand. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the Atlanta quartet conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is pressed on full color picture disc vinyl.
