Mastodon Working On 'Updated' Sound For Next Album


(TeamRock) Mastodon drummer and vocalist Brann Dailor says he'd like to see the band explore a "more proggy" sound on their next album. Guitarist Brent Hinds previously said the follow-up to 2014's Once More 'Round The Sun would likely be a double-length. And while Dailor didn't go into detail about the running time of what will be the US outfit's seventh album, he says the band are hard at work putting ideas together.

Speaking to TeamRock at Bloodstock before Mastodon's headline set at the festival Saturday, Dailor says: "It sounds like Mastodon to me but an updated version. We always try to push to hear something new and hear something different, so that's what's going on.

"It's impossible to tell somebody what something sounds like so I'll spare the details but so far so good - we go with what we know, play what we like and if we don't like it, we don't play it."

He continues: "I'd like to get a little more proggy, and have a little more space and play around with dynamics a little bit more - just dive a little deeper with some of the riffs and some of the parts." Read more here.
