Mastodon recording new album
Georgia's Mastodon are currently recording their next full-length album, entitled "Leviathan." Recording is taking place at Robert Lang Studios (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and Litho Studios (Deftones, Botch) in Seattle with producer Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Isis). Mixing will take place at Robert Lang and the album should hit stores this summer through Relapse Records. Advance song titles for the effort include "Naked Burn", "Iceland", "Hearts Alive", "Seabeast", "Iron Tusk", "Blood and Thunder", and "Megalodon." Here are some comments from drummer Brann Dailor regarding the new record: "I think the new material is a natural progression for Mastodon. Some of it will be more direct and some of it will be a lot more complex. People are going to be surprised by some of the technical aspects of it, but it's also very catchy. As long as we feel the hairs standing up on the back of our neck, we know we've got something."
