Shocking Revelation About Mastodon...

From Posermouth.

On the band's influences:

"We all grew up on early METALLICA, [IRON] MAIDEN, SLAYER, [JUDAS] PRIEST, and I think AC/DC and [LED] ZEPPELIN come through pretty strong in our music, too. It's a good time to bring some of that back hopefully in a new way, though. We don't mind being called a 'prog-rock' band, because that means 'progressive,' you know, taking the music forward. I think you see that with bands like TOOL, THE MARS VOLTA, the DEFTONES and hopefully us."
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"
