    Small gem for Mastodon fans

    Culled from the Once More 'Round the Sun/Emperor of Sand recording sessions, this album started out as being a solo release from lead singer Bent Hinds. This is evident in the first track 'North side Star'. Brent Hinds talents show all over this track, as he uses a Sho-Bud 13-string pedal steel guitar. If you haven't seen one played, look it up. His mastery of this complex instrument makes the first track the 'star' of this album. The Album artwork is really very good too. Only four tracks long, this EP is over rather quickly, but is very much worth the $5 price tag. BOTTOM LINE: Not as heavy as the 2 albums these tracks originated from, this is still very much in the vein of Mastodons' chugging, rumbling style. While it may not attract many new Mastodon fans, established fans will still find 'Cold Dark Place' a worthwhile addition to Mastodons incredible discography.

    4 good songs and over 20 minutes of music for a good price. You can definitely tell Brent wrote these as soon as you hear them. The riffs are a little more noodly and reminded me of some of the Crack the Skye material Brent wrote. They aren't as heavy as a lot of their other stuff and are much more rock oriented. I can see why they didn't quite fit with the material on the album's with which they were recorded (Emperor of Sand and Once More Round...) But the four fit well together. All in all another enjoyable Mastodon experience.

    I really like this for the different tone and feel that it has. It's a bit more lyrical, a bit more emotional than the last album and a nice change of pace. I can see why they left these tracks off, but they stand together well on their own in this EP

    Mastodon knock it out of the park with these gems that were just too good to be on a album because all other songs couldn’t compare. They’ve really matured as musicians and as people. If you’ve followed and grown with them you’ll in enjoy this.

    Mastodon continues to add wonderful content to their ever growing catalogue of top tier metal music. The best song on this 4 song EP is by far 'Toe to Toes' but the entire 22 minutes are great.

    This EP came as a surprise considering they just released one of the best heavy albums of 2017. Cold dark place holds its own and proves heavy music is not dead ! Kudos Mastodon. More please.

    It may be short, but it is definitely worth it. There is a sense of "dread and darkness" prevalent through the songs. A departure from Emperor of Sand, but a welcomed one.

    Short teaser of great work by these guys but really good material. Big fan anyway but this just solidifies what I've thought of them since day one.
