BRENT HINDS IS A CAVEMEN IN THE NEW MASTODON VIDEO
Those disappointed by the apparent sobriety of Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds in his recent studio video will be pleased with the return to his usual, blissfully wrecked state in this interview conducted by Altitude. Hinds sheds some light on the concept behind Mastodon’s upcoming video for the single “Divinations,” and the results are, well, perfectly Mastodonian:
I’m trapped in a block of ice dressed as a cave man, there are explorers, they come find me, I put the Flying V up to the block of ice and it melts, I come out, play a rippin’ guitar solo, kill all of them, and then I eat them, and then a Yeti comes out and eats me.
YES! Axl remarked to me the other day that he wasn’t super-excited about this record, and I kind of agreed. But the more I hear the actual band members talk about the record the more stoked I become. Have faith!
