Mastodon Drummer Brann Dailor Looking to Get ‘More Proggy
Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor talked about what the band’s yet-untitled new album will sound like, saying he’d “like to get a little more proggy.” He tells the press “It sounds like Mastodon to me but an updated version. We always try to push to hear something new and hear something different, so that’s what’s going on.
“It’s impossible to tell somebody what something sounds like so I’ll spare the details but so far so good – we go with what we know, play what we like and if we don’t like it, we don’t play it.
“I’d like to get a little more proggy, and have a little more space and play around with dynamics a little bit more – just dive a little deeper with some of the riffs and some of the parts.
“Just get more explorative and push in that direction and say where normally there’s a stopping point, try to push beyond it. We’ll see what that yields.”
