Writing Underway For New Mastodon Album

The wheels are in motion for a new Mastodon album. Band vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds recently told MTVHive.com that writing for it is already underway and if all goes well, Mastodon could possibly be in the studio as early as January. However, he did add: “we’ve never put out an album a year. That would be unlike us, so maybe we could tour for another year on The Hunter. It’s very possible.”

As for the new material that he himself has been working on for the potential album, he stated:

“A lot of the stuff I’m writing is in open G-minor. I’m playing a lot of slide guitar and just getting really Jimmy Page-y on the place and getting really eerie and Radioheadish and very spooky sounding.”

When asked how far along his bandmates were with new ideas of their own, he offered:

“Those dudes are always working. There’s never really a shortage of music with Mastodon because all of us are working on something musically. I’m in good company. Just because they might stand in the middle of the stage or something, people might think, this is the leader, he must conduct everything, but we’re all the leaders. We spread the weight around.”

Meanwhile, Robinson himself took to his Twitter earlier today (November 30th) to offer:

“2013 is becoming the most ripping metal year of my life- thrash/black/death/postHC lined up- #nobubblebathmusic!”

Other recent tweets seemingly related to the potential pairing include:

“Leaving Warsaw. Exploring the depth of fire and its vulnerability.”

“”Semantic punk” & “Behemoth” Warsaw’s perfect answer to getting it the fk on.. High level dudes “

Speaking via this Twitter conversation, she stated that:

“The “metal” community remains fragmented bcz sites like this are complicit in bigotry & encouraging shitheads 2 troll”

A Twitter user by the name of “Onezumi” replied to her comment with: “it’s a shame that sexism seems to be a Thing even in metal where we are supposed to be an alternative to shit ”

Otep responded to that comment with the following:

“Exactly. This is where misfits & rogues should be welcomed. I’ve been doing this for a decade & these fecal worms still hate”
