Guitarist Brent Hinds Comments On Forthcoming New Album From Mastodon
Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds recently commented on the forthcoming new album from Mastodon and had the following to say about its musical direction;
"'Blood Mountain' and 'Crack the Skye' — those albums took too long to make. This only took us a couple weeks to record and there’s a totally different feeling to it. It's a jump-on-your-bed, get naked, and go streaking kind of record. I haven't had this feeling about a Mastodon record since [2004's] 'Leviathan.' It's just fucking awesome.
"We've got a song about fighting, there's a song about lifting heavy stuff, there's a song about people on meth creeping around in trees trying to get the best wood grain out of a tree to sell it at Lowe's for [drug] money…the album is kind of silly. We're taking the piss out of things. It sounds like Zeppelin with these smooth buttery vocals and a huge Jimmy Page-style guitar solo. Me and Brann [Dailor, drums] play off each other also in this sort of proggy way. There's a lot of stuff for the listener to tweak their ear to"
Song titles set to appear on the album include "Blasteroids," "All the Heavy Lifting," and "The Sparrow." The band are also planning on giving the album the title of "The Hunter" or "Brother" in honor of Brent Hinds' own brother who unexpectedly passed away last December while hunting.
