Watch Mastodon’s “Asleep In The Deep” Music Video

Mastodon released their sixth studio album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, last year via Reprise Records. You can click here to preview/purchase the LP on iTunes. Just recently, the sludge metal group has revealed the music video for the sixth track off the album. Watch the video for “Asleep in the Deep”, directed by Skinner, Video Rahim, and Shane Morton, below.

Skinner stated, “This concept was birthed out of my curiosity for 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. I’m more than excited about the way it came out! I love it.”
