Drummer Brann Dailor of Mastodon had the following to say to MTV regarding the new album:
Brann Dailor Speaks About New Album"It's hard to be inside something and talk to people about it. And it's kind of a cliché that the people in the band think that what they're working on at the moment is the best stuff they've ever done. But I guess that's the way that we feel. It's just more intense, more — I mean I like everything we've ever done. But at the moment, I'm really digging on this stuff. It's hard for me to put into words what's different about it. It's just better. I hope we can start a prog revolution, because the timing's right. You've got a Tool record that's coming out, an Isis...
