Details on New Mastodon
2013-02-13 by DirtBagDan | 84 Comments

Coming off the back of The Hunter, famous prog-metal band Mastodon have now decided to take their experimental nature even further by incorporating what guitarist-singer Brent Hinds refers to as "Radioheadish" influences. The new album is set to be recorded shortly with a 2014 release becoming more and more of a reality. The sound of the new album has been described by Hinds as "very spooky" due to the use of slide guitar and open G tunings to create a Radiohead-sounding atmosphere.

Dammit, I was hoping they'd take their new sound and start throwing in some stuff they covered in the past as early as Remission. I have no clue what to think of this

Crack The Skye and The Hunter were complete dog shit, save for the track "Oblivion".

After Crack The Skye was released I knew I could never have faith in another Mastodon album going forward. I wont be dissapointed at all if the new one is a stinker again.

What? I personally thought Crack The Skye was their best since Leviathan, "The Last Baron" kicked ass. I didn't like The Hunter all
that much though.

Lol at all you dumb fucks that think Mastodon are getting "softer". There is still plenty of their Remission/Leviathan roots on their newer material. These guys are so good at not making the same album over and over again and keeping things interesting. Fucking ungrateful bastards.

I'm looking forward to this. Two of my favorite "new" bands (new in comparison to Springsteen, Rush, Iron Maiden, etc.) Really like The Hunter, and especially Crack the Skye (easily their best, IMO).

There is a difference between ripping off and being influenced. You haven't heard a millisecond of the album so you don't even know what it will sound like.

Crack the Skye was their best in my opinion, with Blood Mountain and Leviathan tied for second. The Hunter was more accessible but it still had a lot of great songs like the title track which features my all time favorite guitar solo of Brent Hinds.

It has some sick riffs but its probably my least favorite just because I think they became way better with Leviathan and Blood Mountain.

A band will either get criticized for evolving or not evolving so either way these dudes will get a lot of shit thrown at them for whatever they do from now on.I'm in support of whatever they do even though I thought The Hunter was their worst album they are still capable of creating something worth while.So fuck the haters I'll still pick up their new album!
