Mastodon reveals producer for new album
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor revealed that band will soon be recording their new album with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush). Dailor had the following to say about Nick Raskulinecz: "He's a rock guy. He's a rocker. He likes to rock. He's done a bunch of our friends' records that sound great. I'm a fan of all the Deftones records he's done, all the Alice in Chains stuff, and he worked with Queens of the Stone Age on Songs for the Deaf." Mastodon has written roughly 18 songs for the forthcoming effort, a handful of which will actually make into onto the record. "It's gonna be massive and insane, lots of epic greatness," Dailor told Rolling Stone. "There will be lots of huge riffs and new directions. It's real weird, real math-y, real straightforward. It's up, down and all around... It's a culmination of everything for the band. The snowball keeps rolling and collecting snow."
