Mastodon was honored with a Grammy in the “Best Metal Performance” category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 60th annual Grammy Awards.

Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders spoke in an interview with HardDrive Radio and revealed his thoughts about Mastodon’s Grammy winning. He said:

It’s pretty surreal. I think it’s great, just because the attention that you get – not only us, but all five bands that were nominated for this ‘Best Metal’ category, it brings good attention to all of ’em, all those bands, us included. I truly feel that we’re all in the same boat.

We never started a band with the end result wanting to be a trophy or a Grammy Award winner – that’s the furthest thing on your radar when you find some friends to start a band with.

So it was unexpected to get to this point, but now that we have gotten here, to get that kind of recognition, I think it’s nothing but positive.
