LOUDWIRE AWARDS MASTODON’S “ASLEEP IN THE DEEP”
BEST METAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
 
December 17, 2015 – (Burbank, CA.) – Loudwire, among Hard rock’s leading online destinations has just published their Year End Best Of 2015 lists and have named Mastodon’s “Asleep In The Deep” the #1 of the 10 Best Metal Video Of The Year 2015. Loudwire announced: “Mastodon are truly in a league of their own, not only creating music that beckons labeling them as their own genre, but crafting brilliant music videos like “Asleep in the Deep.” The video was released this year, but the song comes off the band’s 2014 record, Once More ‘Round the Sun. In this video, a cat leaves home and stumbles upon a weird, blacklit world full of cute little demon creatures. After drinking from a saucer, the furry feline undergoes a psychedelic transformation and has all sorts of hallucinations. The pacing of the video complements the trance-like song, resulting in the Best Metal Video of 2015.” Click here to view  “Asleep In The Deep”
Mastodon wish to Thank Loudwire and their readers.  As previously  announced,the ASLEEP IN THE DEEP  12″ picture disc featuring the track from their current album, ONCE MORE ‘ROUND THE SUN is available now.The B-side is an instrumental version of “Asleep In The Deep”, which is exclusive to this release. Have a gander at the stunning artwork above, taken from the beautifully disturbing video for the track. The video itself has dazzled fans and filmmakers alike with its lysergically-laced, twisted imagery as only one might expect from the questionable minds of Atlanta-based Special FX Guru, Shane Morton, and renowned American artist Skinner (cover artist for ONCE MORE ‘ROUND THE SUN) which debuted on Adult Swim some months back.Once you’ve seen it you’ll want to know how this piece of award-worthy filmmaking came to fruition.  Click here to find out.   Mastodon is excited to have a limited webstore exclusive bundle to celebrate the video which includes the “Asleep in the Deep” t-shirt and 24″x 36″ movie-style poster printed on 100# text paper featuring the exclusive art by Skinner.  Order your limited web store exclusive bundle today: http://shop.mastodonrocks.com/asleep-in-the-deep-bundle.html
