They hired AJ Fosik, a woodcarver, to make that bull(deer?) head.

For any interested in more of his work, here's a link to his gallery.

Shit thats a wood carving? Mad skills lol.

As an album cover though...seems a bit of a departure from their regular covers. We'll have to wait and see how much the music is a departure from their regular style.
I punch those numbers into my calculator and they make a happy face.

I like it. It's simple, but there's still plenty to take in. Plus there's a typical Mastodon "something is slightly off" look to it.

Its like they took a painting from the guy who used to do their album covers and turned it into a really cool, demented wood carving.  I like it.  I also like how "Mastodon" is in an almost-Soviet kind of font.

The same artist made all of their previous covers.  This guy is different.
