After a subdued intro, "Leathers" kicks into a heady guitar riff that sounds vaguely Mastodon-ish, backing up early promises by band members that this may be their most dynamic record yet.

"The songs are very different from each other," frontman Chino Moreno told AntiQuiet earlier this year, "not heavier or slower, but more dynamic, going toward several directions, it’s heavy, but beautiful.”

The follow-up to 2010's Diamond Eyes is due out November 13 via Warner.
