Last year Mastodon released their highly-praised Once More ‘Round The Sun. Over the last few weeks we have been getting hints as to what Mastodon were doing with their new music video for “Asleep In The Deep.” Well the waiting is over and you can now watch the video for yourself. The concept of the video is what do cats do when their owners are asleep and it’s fucking weird. A video this strange, only Adult Swim could be involved. Check it out below. Continue reading
I love Killer Be Killed, the supergroup featuring members of Mastodon, Soulfly and The Dillinger Escape Plan.

Yeah, you read the headline correctly. Oscar-nominated actress Juliette Lewis, who was incredible in both Hellion and Kelly & Cal last year, has been announced as the vocalist for Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. GTO is the supergroup consisting of members of Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Mars Volta and now, Juliette Lewis. This isn’t the actresses first foray into music, as she has been the vocalist of a few projects in the past including Juliette & The Licks, a solo career and standing in with the New Romantiques. Check out Juliette & The Licks after the jump with a blurb from Ben Weinman of Dillinger. Continue reading
Mastodon have been teasing their new music video for a while now, but I don’t think anyone expected what they have done. The band teamed up with Adult Swim again and they have released the most ass-tastic metal video of the year. Possibly the most ass-tastic video of the year, with the competition being Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda.” Check out “The Motherload” after the jump. ALL DAT ASS! Continue reading

Mastodon are currently streaming a new track from their forthcoming album, Once More Round the Sun, on their official website. The new track is entitled “High Road” and it combines a bit of that down-tuned sludge from Remission with the more melodic, almost “poppy” feel that The Hunter possessed at times. Well, listen for yourself here.
Once More Round the Sun is scheduled to be released sometime this June.
The supergroup featuring members of Soulfly, Mastodon, The Mars Volta, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed, have debuted two new songs from their forthcoming full length debut. The band’s lineup consists of Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), and Dave Elitch (Ex Mars Volta). The two tracks are entitled “Wings of Feather and Wax” and “Face Down” and are chock full of groove metal riffs, which is not surprising considering Cavalera’s input. I am curious as to what you all think of this highly anticipated project. You can stream the tracks after the break.
Killer Be Killed will be released on May 13th via Nuclear Blast. You can pre-order your copy here.

Mastodon vocalist and guitarist Brent Hinds recently told MTVHIVE that the band is working on a “Radioheadish” and “spooky sounding” new album. The band should be in the studio as early as January but may tour another year on The Hunter before releasing anything. On the sound of the new record, Brent said:
A lot of the stuff I’m writing is in open G-minor. I’m playing a lot of slide guitar and just getting really Jimmy Page-y on the place and getting really eerie and Radioheadish and very spooky sounding.
