Mastodon Looking to 'Go Deeper and More Personal' With New Album
As the new Mastodon studio effort is cooking up in the studio, US metallers remain predictable in their desire to keep things unpredictable. During a recent chat with Nikki Blakk, drummer Brann Dailor discussed the upcoming record, stressing the importance of adding a personal note to each of the tunes. "Doing 'Crack the Skye' and then doing 'The Hunter,' what we discovered about ourselves and our music is that it's better if we go deeper and more personal with the content and the subject matter than just keeping it superficial." The stickman elaborated further, "So we've made extra close attention to make sure that the songs that we are doing and the lyrics we are writing come from this certain emotional well that's inside all of us and never to do anything superficial. Okie-dokie?" Dailor also pointed out that the band will not get too self-indulgent, but the album definitely "won't be what you expect" either. According to the previous reports, Mastodon are looking to hit the studio next month and hopefully have the record released by the spring of 2014. The group's previous album, "The Hunter," saw its release back in September 2011 via Reprise Records as the fifth studio effort in Mastodon opus. After landing at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 chart, it ultimately went on to sell over 75,000 copies in the US.
