Mastodon was formed when Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, former members of previous bands, moved to Atlanta and met Troy Sanders and and Brent Hinds. The band recorded a demo in 2000 with Eric Saner on vocals, who would soon leave the band for personal reasons. Some months later Mastodon would get a record deal with Relapse Records, now 2001, releasing "Lifesblood." Shortly after "Remission," their first full-length album, would be released in 2002.

2004 saw the release of "Leviathan," the bands most successful album yet, winning Album of the Year awards from Revolver, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Terrorizer magazines. The lyrics and artwork of "Leviathan" are loosely based on the classic novel Moby Dick. That same year Mastodon would embark on The Unholy Alliance tour in Europe with Slayer, Slipknot and Hatebreed.

After signing a new record deal with Warner Bros. Mastodon would release their third studio album, "Blood Mountain." While the album was originally planned to be one large piece of music, it slowly evolved into individual tracks. Towards the end of the year, Mastodon would go on a European tour promoting their new album, opening each show for TOOL.

Currently, the band is touring and promoting their fifth album titled "The Hunter," which was released in October of 2011.
