Well, this just got even more interesting. According to Vicious Volume, a metal radio show in Singapore, Mastodon’s Troy Sanders is joining his unnamed project, which also features The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato and The Mars Volta’s Dave Elitch. Here he tells Brader Bo (aka Bo Skullbanger) about the new
Troy [Sanders] from Mastodon just joined the band, too, so now we’ve got three singers for the project, which is also really killer. I’m really excited about that, too. I think it’s gonna be a very original project. I don’t know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a Transplants of metal.Transplants had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I’m following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as Nailbomb [Max’s mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel in my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don’t think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we’re hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don’t have is a name.
Well, it sounds like it’ll come together really quickly, and will be more hardcore/punk rock than even expected. And now a project that doesn’t even have a name yet just skyrocketed to our ‘releases we’re most looking forward to in 2013’ list.
