Mastodon

Mastodon shows are heard and absorbed more than they’re seen, with little in the way of stage lighting, banter or personality. It’s just 90-minutes-plus of nonstop riffing, shredding and pounding. The Atlanta prog-thrashers are touring their way up to the summer fest circuit ahead of their first studio album in three years, “Once More ’Round the Sun,” due in June with the surprisingly melodic new single “High Road” leading the way. They’re bringing two of Europe’s burgeoning new metal bands, France’s Gojira and Norway’s Kvelertak, to open. Chris Riemenschneider
