Brann Dailor comments on drumming on new Mastodon album

Posted by AP on 19/04/14

Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor continues to draw inspiration from Phil Collins on the band's upcoming album "Once More Round the Sun", which will be released in June. Here's what he had to say:

As far as drum lines go, I’m carrying on from where I was on the last record and trying to recreate the Phil Collins drum sound. As funny as that might seem to a lot of people, he’s one of my favorite drummers, and has always possessed one of the most incredible drum sounds.

So, I try to get that really Brody tom sound, take the bottom heads off ’70′s-style. I just think it makes the tom sounds real cool and no one, especially with heavy metal…. I don’t know, the drums don’t sound interesting to me in modern heavy music, so I look to the past to find something that’s cooler and gives it a little more character.
