Mastodon released their ninth album Hushed and Grim on October 29, 2021. The double-LP featured the GRAMMY® Award-nominated track “Pushing The Tides.” It performed well commercially, peaking at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart. It also marked the band’s third straight chart-topping album on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums.
Nearly two years since its release, Gojira are still riding the wave of their latest effort Fortitude (Roadrunner). The album’s hit single “Amazonia” earned the band a GRAMMY® nod for Best Metal Performance. The record topped both Billboard’s Top Rock and Top Hard Rock Albums charts. It peaked at No. 2 in their native France.
Death metallers Lorna Shore formed in 2009 and released three full-length albums from 2015 to 2020. Last year, however, the band finally broke out with their massive hit LP Pain Remains (Century Media). The album hit No. 2 on the UK Rock & Metal Albums chart. With the release of the critically-acclaimed record, the band are in the forefront of a new class of modern metal acts.
