Atlanta metallers start work on a more 'riff-oriented' new release
The Atlanta metallers have posted a series of photos from their writing space over at Mastodonrocks.com, while drummer Brann Dailor told Noise Creep that the new effort will be “more riff-oriented” than previous releases and influenced by the late Zep drummer John Bonham.
“Everything always changes once you go in the studio, but at the moment it seems like a really super-heavy Led Zeppelin or something,” said Dailor. “It has a lot of that Bonham-esque groove to it, but really heavy and dark. I really like playing like that, and when it goes into those parts, I’m psyched.”
The album will be the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Crack the Skye’.
