Photos: Mastodon in the Studio!


My favorite progressive metallers (apologies to Tool), Mastodon are currently in the studio recording their follow-up to 2009’s most excellent and (literally) stellar concept album, Crack the Skye. YAY!!! Drummer Brann Dailor says the new album will definitely be released this year, saying, “We don’t mess around.” This time they’re working Mike Elizondo as producer, a very interesting pick as he has been known to work with a diverse group of artist in the past, including Fiona Apple, Dr. Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent, Alanis Morrissette, and Marron 5. Dude’s also a hell of a bassist. I love all the basslines he provided for all the Dr. Dre-produced stuff.

Anyhoot, I found some in-the-studio photos on the Mastodon rocks website.

Genius guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher
Thundering bassist Troy Sanders
Bombastic drummer (and class clown) Brann Dailor, who always wears interesting T-shirts
Is there any better way to rock than with a Marshall and a Gibson?
No, I dont’ think so!
