I don’t know, man.
I am no longer convinced Mastodon are as great as everyone makes them out to be. I have said this before, and am maybe the only person to say it, but that’s OK.
Granted, their first three albums were fucking on point, the music tight, and the artwork, unruly.
But the band’s most recent efforts have left me wanting more. I can’t say what more, but clearly, to my mind, that means something’s lacking.
Are Mastodon good? No question. Are they the second coming? No.
This September, though, they do have plans to record.
The band’s Brann Dailor said in a new interview I watched online that Mastodon are hoping to begin tracking their new album in September.
Right after Mayhem Festival wraps.
Nothing is official, but we’ll keep you posted.
The band’s been working on new material for months now.
