New Mastodon Recording – Classic Live Videos

Mastodon vocalist & bassist Troy Sanders speaking about the new record:

“I think it’s become more spacious, melodic and a bit more epic, in the grand scheme of things. Some of the guitar parts really space out. We paid a lot of attention to the vocal patterns. We really tried to become more melodic with the vocals, making them more intertwined with the songs. It’s by far the biggest departure from record to record that we’ve done. A lot of the stuff on this record doesn’t quite sound like us. You know it’s us, because it’s obvious that it is when you hear it. But on first listen, you don’t know what the hell’s going on. For me, the biggest departure was the vocal style that we applied to every song on the album. The vocal style is very much in tune with the music itself. We created this more unified, melodic record.”
