Mastodon finishing up new album

Thursday, April 6, 2006 8:52 AM PT / 5,467 views

According to MTV.com, Mastodon are currently completing recording process for their Warner Bros. debut, "Blood Mountain." Most of the tracking took place last month in Seattle with Matt Bayles at Studio Litho and at his own studio, Red Room. Late this month Rich Costey (Audioslave) will begin mixing the project in New York. Drummer Brann Dailor told MTV the following regarding the new album: "It's hard to be inside something and talk to people about it. And it's kind of a cliché that the people in the band think that what they're working on at the moment is the best stuff they've ever done. But I guess that's the way that we feel. It's just more intense, more — I mean I like everything we've ever done. But at the moment, I'm really digging on this stuff. It's hard for me to put into words what's different about it. It's just better. I hope we can start a prog revolution, because the timing's right. You've got a Tool record that's coming out, an Isis record that's coming out, a Mars Volta record that's coming out, a Mastodon record that's coming out, and I hope that converges into something really awesome for music where it doesn't become pop, but there's a little more sharing of the pie. It would be cool if you had kids in their bedrooms not trying to learn Linkin Park songs, but they're trying to learn Mastodon songs. It's cool music that's honest and from the heart, and it's technically challenging." "Blood Mountain" is scheduled to hit stores in August.

"t would be cool if you had kids in their bedrooms not trying to learn Linkin Park songs, but they're trying to learn Mastodon songs." I don't think a lot of people, period, could learn Mastodon songs.

Does this band have talent and creative flair? Yes. Does this band kick ass? No. BORING, OVERRATED, AND NOW, MTV DOES THEIR PR! How predictable.

NIGdestroyer 4/6/2006 10:06:11 PM

I think lambgoat failed to mention that Cedric from mars volta would also be guesting on their album? Weird. Anyways, Should be good for the first 2 or 3 songs just like every album they've done.

"I hope we can start a prog revolution" - I read this and frowned.
