Mastodon Looking to 'Surprise Fans' on New Album
Mastodon gave a brief update on their upcoming studio effort, naming the need to surprise fans with fresh material as one of the top priorities.

Chatting with Metal Hammer, guitarist Bill Kelliher noted: "I've spent a lot of time writing over the last six months, trying to come up with new ideas. Every Mastodon record seems to have a different flavor - we don't want to keep on releasing the same record over and over again. We've got to surprise our fans; we're always moving and growing."

Additionally focusing on the new material, the axeman explained: "My stuff tends to be all over the place, there's some simple rock grooves going on but there's also that early, low-tuned heaviness we used on 'Remission' ... there's some really sludgy things going on. There's a song I wrote that’s low, heavy and insidious. Brann [Dailor, drums] thinks it sounds like Darth Vader's 'Imperial March' theme."

The band announced studio entrance earlier last month, adding "it's time to do or die." Additionally, the guys pointed out that the new effort will "pick up" where their latest studio release, 2011's "The Hunter" left off.
