Mastodon have been hard at work on new album ‘The Hunter’, the follow-up to 2009’s critically-acclaimed ‘Crack The Skye’. Yesterday, however, Mastodon released a video for ‘Deathbound’, a leftover cut from the ‘Crack the Skye’ sessions. Put together by the geniuses at Adult Swim.
And genius it is, casting Brann Dailor as Mister Rogers at the beginning before going into the song and leaving behind a trail of puppet destruction. You read that right. Puppets destroying puppets. It’s so bloody entertaining!
And as for the song itself? Can I just say it harks back to the days of Leviathan in its intensity? Oh yes.
