Interview with Mastodon's Brann Dailor

Do you have a favorite concept album?
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway by Genesis.

Peter Gabriel?
Yeah, oh yeah! There is a soft place in my heart for some of the Phil Collins vocal-driven stuff. When he first took over it was OK, it was sticking a little bit prog, but then he just went totally pop. My mom used to do exercises to Phil Collins stuff.

“Sussudio?” Have you seen that American Psycho movie?
Yeah, it’s hilarious! I love it! But yeah, Lamb Lies Down… is probably my favorite album of all time.

Really, of all time?
It’s got every element of music. I just love it. Genesis was able to do everything and get away with it—goofy at times, abstract, poppy, then completely fucking weird and bizarre. Peter Gabriel is amazing. The last song on their album Foxtrot, “Supper’s Ready,” is 22 minutes long and amazing. That album is kind of what we modeled Leviathan after, in a way. There’s a grouping of rocking songs between the four and five minute mark. Just bam! Bam! Bam! And then there’s this big long epic to take you out. We were like “We can have that, we can do something like that.” It wasn’t the inspiration for the whole album, but we kind of modeled it after Foxtrot.


Game, set and match
