More details emerge about ‘creepy’ new Mastodon album

    Mastodon is five songs into its new album with producer Brendan O’Brien, and according to drummer Brann Dailor, things are getting strange in the heavy side  of the ATL. Dailor said the new songs are “real creepy and spaced out and different” and include a fifteen minute long jam track, “The Last Baron,” that O’Brien has left totally intact. The new album will also have a concept tying it together, but so far the band has been mum on what it will be. As Leviathan dealt with water and Blood Mountain was based around earth, odds are this one could be either wind or fire, with fire in the lead because of the many sweet possibilities for the album cover. Finally, details have also emerged about the Mastodon/Springsteen connection. It seems that E-Street Band member Max Weinberg has a son who is a huge Mastodon fan. In what has to be one of the coolest dad moves of all time, Weinberg hooked the band up with O’Brien. [Billboard ]
