Mastodon ‘Jonah Hex’ Collaboration Turns Sour
Mastodon’s Brent Hinds has spoken out about how the band have had difficulties whilst scoring the forthcoming Jonah Hex movie.
Mastodon fell into trouble once film composer Marco Beltrami replaced original collaborator John Powell, during the reshooting process.
“All of a sudden, there’s this new guy, who went in a different direction,” says Hinds,. “And there was no way he could connect with me: They brought all the new scenes to us, but I was on tour this entire time, so I had no time to preconceive what I wanted the movie to sound like. Being so busy … it’s hard to be creative when you’re going through the same motions every day (onstage).”
