[bravewords.com] MASTODON guitarist Bill Kelliher spoke with Metalunderground.com on touring, videos, and the elemental theme of their next album. Here's an excerpt:
Metalunderground.com: All of your albums thus far, are connected by an elemental theme. Are you also planning on including the Chinese elements of metal and wood in the future in addition to air? (Remission is fire; Leviathan is water; Blood Mountain is Earth; Crack The Skye is the fifth element/aether/quintessence).
Kelliher: "Yes. We have been thinking about that, the Chinese elements. Because there are a lot of elements out there, not just four or five like some people think."
Metalunderground.com: So do you think that after touring, the next plausible concept would be air element in order to complete the elemental suite?
Kelliher: "Well, I don’t know. This album is more of an aether based record. But air, I don’t know. It would be something like wind or air I believe, but I don’t really know because we have not crossed that bridge yet."
