MASTODON’ “Asleep In The Deep” Behind-The-Scenes Footage

Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “Asleep In The Deep“, the latest video from Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON, can be seen above. The band teamed up once again with “Once More ‘Round The Sun” cover artist Skinner to push the boundaries of psychedelia as far as they can.

Skinner is the mastermind behind the “Asleep In The Deep” video, which tells the psychedelic and epic journey of a house cat who unknowingly travels into a bizarre gypsy catacomb where it encounters a giant bullfrog, a three-headed evil rat king, cat gnomes, cheese slaves and a warrior squirrel.

Asleep In The Deep” was directed by Atlanta-based director Video Rahim and co-directed by special effects guru Shane Morton and Skinner. Hey Beautiful Jerk, a New York City-based design and visual effects boutique, provided creative direction and all post production services.

Skinner has this to say about the video: “This concept was birthed out of my curiosity about what a cat really does at night while we are asleep. Where do they go? Cats have a very mysterious myth to them and I thought it would be cool to explore that, as little nocturnal heroes. I decided to put a sort of Joseph Campbell hero myth spin on it and add some Jodorowsky psychedelia as well.”

MASTODON‘s latest album, “Once More ‘Round The Sun“, sold around 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 24, 2014 via Reprise Records.

Once More ‘Round The Sun” was recorded in Nashville with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who is known for his work with RUSH, DEFTONES, FOO FIGHTERS and ALICE IN CHAINS.
