Mastodon's Next Album Is Called "The Hunter"

In a recent interview that Brann and Bill did with MTV Germany, Brann revealed that the next Mastodon album has already got a name: "The Hunter". Also that they've finished writing it. Apparently the title refers to a song about Brent's brother, who recently died in a hunting accident. Bill also confirmed that there are almost fifteen tracks on the album, with no long proggy songs anymore, and that the record is faster and crazier than "Crack The Skye" (Brent has compared it to "Leviathan" in it's level of simplicity).
