Mastodon ups the ante with 'Spectrelight'

Posted By on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 at 10:19 AM

As the September 27 release date for Mastodon’s The Hunter draws near, the machines of industry have begun sputtering to life. The arrival of this kaleidoscopic new video for the song “Spectrelight” is something of a game changer. The song is the real selling point; all of those psychedelic swirls are just eye candy. Ye of little faith who weren’t feeling “Black Tongue” or “Curl of the Burl,” let “Spectrelight” sink in, then press play again and again. It’s a chugging and focused return to form, and it totally ups the ante on whatever else the album has in store.
