In no particular order…
Mastodon, “Oblivion” and “Divinations” – directed by Roboshobo
This is why music videos exist, kids.

Yes, we’re huge Brodsky fans. This might be his trippiest video yet.

Satan Rosenbloom doesn’t watch many music videos, but he did enjoy this one greatly.
Alice in Chains, “A Looking in View” – directed by Stephen Schuster
Alice in Chains made three videos this year. One of them was good.

“Have you ever seen the video for Baroness’ ‘A Horse Called Golgotha?’ Have you ever seen the video for Baroness’ ‘A Horse Called Golgotha’… on weed?”
