Mastodon talk 'gorgeous' album

In our new issue, we exclusively chat to Mastodon about the follow-up to 2011's The Hunter.

The Atlantan heavyweights have been stuck in the studio for a few months now, with an early summer release expected for the as-yet-untitled album.

We grabbed Brann Dailor for an update on how it’s all coming along…

“It’s a gorgeous album,” says the drummer. “It sounds like us, it sounds like Mastodon. Its a reflection of our past with a few songs that are a bit out there and show a new direction. There’s some simple songs and some songs that are all over the place. I can tell you that we are as happy with it as we were our previous albums, and I really think this is a true Mastodon album in the sense that everyone had a chance to touch each song.”

For more on that, plus amazing interviews with Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Steel Panther, Miss May I, Cradle Of Filth and many more, get our new issue, out now!
