Atlanta’s sludge/prog giants, Mastodon, have released what may arguably be the greatest music video in history for their song, “Asleep in the Deep”. The song comes from their most recent album; Once More ‘Round the Sun. Video Rahim, Shane Morton, and Skinner (the man responsible for the incredible cover art for the new album) direct the video.
The video suits the song brilliantly (and vice versa) and follows a very interesting and complete narrative. In it, a cat takes hallucinogenic drugs and ventures into a psychedelic world with frog lords and rat tyrants; thus answering the age-old question of where cats go when their humans are asleep. Words do not do the video justice, so take the time to sit and really take this one in with all its glory.
