There are a few things in this life that we can depend on. One of these things is that when Mastodon makes a music video, it’s going to get weird. Today, the band released a video for the song “Steambreather”, one of my favorite tracks from their record Emperor of Sand. Much like their video for “Asleep in the Deep”, things start off fairly normal before descending into bedlam. Check it out below!
While the subject matter and inspiration for the album is deeply personal and heavy, the videos offer a dash of levity and the bizarre. With occult themes, stoners, delusions and pastel jacks-in-boxes, there’s a lot to love here. Mastodon’s songs are the perfect psychedelic soundtrack for stories such as these, and I hope they never stop.
As I said, this is one of my favorite songs from their latest release, and I thoroughly enjoy the video. What do you think? Let us know in the comments, and be sure stay tuned to It Djents for all things Mastodon.
