Mastodon release video for ‘Divinations’ ahead of Crack The Skye

Showing the band trawling through a snowy, mountainous terrain, the epic, doom-laden video for the band’s recent single, ‘Divinations’ is a masterclass in what to do when your label gives you some cash and a camera.

The prog-metallers are decked out in some cool shades and parkas and they use ropes as they venture into the wild to slay a SNARLING MANIMAL. The ropes are pretty cool, but not as cool as the icy beard that Brent Hinds is sporting.

It’s all dramatic landscapes and even more dramatic back-lighting as the band hammer out the single, which was released digitally on 26 January 2009. The beast looks proper heavy metal – especially when he starts drinking out of a skull. We can only assume it was beer.

Yeah, Crack The Skye is very awesome. You should definitely buy it when it comes out on 23 March 2009. We’ll have a review up next week as well as an awesome interview with Bill Kelliher with EXCLUSIVE NEWS IN IT. How exciting.
