Mastodon Premieres Official Video For "Divinations"

Headbanger's Blog premiered the new Mastodon video, "Divination," this weekend online while the video premiered on MTV's Headbangers Ball as well. The video was helmed by Roboshobo, who also directed the video for "All Nightmare Long" from Metallica.

The clip depicts the band members on a rock n' roll mission, trudging through the frozen tundra. "We're climbing a mountain looking for a creature named Brent," guitarist Bill Kelliher told HeadbangersBlog.com. "We were mountaineers — explorers like in John Carpenters ‘The Thing.'"

"It's a really fun video," adds guitarist and vocalist Brent Hinds. "I'm an old caveman trapped in a block of ice. Explorers find me and they put the flying V [guitar] up to the ice and it melts me. I grab the guitar, do the solo and then I kill them."

"Divination" comes off Crack The Skye which hits stores on March 24th on Warner Bros Records. You can watch the video below.

Very good sh**! I guess Hot Topic is releasing a special edition Vinyl Picture Disc of this single this week.
