Boing Boing is pleased to present the new video for Mastodon's "Dry Bone Valley," from their album The Hunter. The video was directed and animated by BB pal Tim Biskup!
And the album cover art is AJ Fosik
This was the first time in years I bought an album based merely on the cover. I just can’t get enough of it – thanks for sharing the name, I thought it might have been done by Tim Biskup as well.
It’s so bizarre that it’s epic.
Eerie how much this reminds me of a hallucination I had in college…
I loves me some Mastodon but that video seems like the kind of visualization plugin that will just come standard with Winamp in a couple years.
I’m not sure if scaling and opacity changes can really be considered animation. Despite some of the images being interesting the video is a one trick pony as far as action and I can’t tell if there is any story going on. I like the song OK. Best Mastodon songs IMHO are Capilarian Crest, Colony of Birchmen, and Megalodon.
Blood and Thunder?
good video. completely pedestrian song, as far as Mastodon goes. disappointed. might be the first Mastodon album i hesitate in buying. and yes, i buy them.
YES that one too!
That was cool! A lot of haters on Youtube though. Too bad MTV will show MDK and not this!
Why is Jim Flora disciple Biskup directing a headbanger video? The YouTube comments sound like the posters routinely huff industrial cleaning products.
Looks very amateurish. A simple zoom in effect played out throughout the video. Kind of gets boring. Looks like its very half-a$$. The pictures themselves look pretty cool though.
