The tri-chord lead intro returns and although comparatively riff free, here we are once again remained of Mastodon's innate ability to craft music that creates the impression of being spun to the edges of some sort of hallucinatory, astral spectrograph. According to Brann Dailor, Stargasm is about having sex in space, or the feeling of what that might be like, and after a super slow-mo beginning the song explodes in a warp-speed orgasm of raging guitars that are juxtaposed with Alan Parsons-like vocal treatments amid sci-fi sonic treatments. In a super-cosmic bridge, Sanders sings, "And then we shift into overdrive/ but you're not here/ and your legs and the stars collide/ you're on fire." With that, the band takes off into another dimension of metal splendor.
