WHOAAAA! Mastodon “Divinations” music video is fucking sweeeet

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Watch now! Crack the Skye hits stores on March 24th! Click read more to read the band’s own thoughts on this gorgeous new cinematic masterpiece they’re calling a music video and see their forthcoming U.S. tour dates…

“Divinations” was created by Roboshobo, who also directed Mastodon’s “Sleeping Giant” and Metallica’s “All Nightmare Long.” The clip depicts the band members on a rock n’ roll mission, trudging through the frozen tundra. “We’re climbing a mountain looking for a creature named Brent.” guitarist Bill Kelliher told HeadbangersBlog.com. “We were mountaineers — explorers like in John Carpenters ‘The Thing.’”

“It’s a really fun video,” adds guitarist and vocalist Brent Hinds. “I’m an old cavemen trapped in a block of ice. Explorers find me and they put the flying V [guitar] up to the ice and it melts me. I grab the guitar, do the solo and then I kill them.”
