Member of JUDAS PRIEST praised Mastodon’s latest record ‘Emperor Of Sand’. Both Richie and Rob said:
“I’ve just got back into the experience of vinyl, and going to hunt for vinyls. You never know what you’re going to find. You get a good 12-by-12 piece of artwork; you read the lyrics; you put the needle on; you experience the whole thing.
“It can be anything from Mastodon’s latest record, ‘Emperor of Sand,’ which I think is phenomenal. They’ve really embodied that whole thing – the artwork, the packaging, the experience of the vinyl. It could go right back to Elvis or The Stones, or Hendrix. There’s a vast gamut of things which I personally listen to and get inspiration from.”
