Ryze-Up Exclusive Interview | Troy Sanders Of Mastodon Talks New Album ‘Emperor Of Sand’ + More

Mastodon is just one of those bands.  You know the kinds of bands I mean.  The bands that still seem a little larger than life, bringing a kind of grandeur back to rock & roll.  The bands that have an intelligence and have something to say or a story to tell.  The bands that seem to be liked by people all over the spectrum.  In the past 20 years, I’ve only come across a handful of those bands.  Faith No More, Tool, Deftones, Opeth….Mastodon.  In the 17 years they’ve been around, their music has evolved and grown yet always retained a very distinct sound.  With their newest offering, Emperor Of Sand, they’ve brought all these things together into an extremely diverse yet pleasantly cohesive and interesting concept album.  RYZE-UP got the opportunity to catch up with bassist/lead vocalist Troy Sanders and talk about the album and what 2017 holds for Mastodon.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today on behalf of Ryze-Up.  I hope you’re well, How’s your day been?

Today has been great.  I had a nice band practice, that’s always good.  You know, getting the band back together and gearing up for a tour.  That was one hell of an intro, very complimentary!

Be sure and check out the rest of this exclusive with Troy in the April 2017 Edition of Ryze-Up Magazine!!!
