progressive metallers from Atlanta MASTODON released an audio / visual clip for “Current respirator”, a song from their last album, “Emperor of the Sand”. The video, created by Aaron Hymes, can be seen below.
“Emperor of Sand” debuted at No.7 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, making it their third Top 10 album.

“Emperor of the Sand” find MASTODON return to a deeply imaginative and complex conceptual scenario that reflects on the nature of time. Threading the myth of a death row inmate in a majestically malevolent desert, the group conjures the seeds of a musical and lyrical odyssey sliding rapidly through a cosmic hourglass.
“‘Emperor of the sand’ is like the grim reaper,” says drummer / singer Brann Dailor. “The sand represents time. If you or someone you know has ever been terminally diagnosed, the first thought is about time. Invariably you ask, ‘How much time is left?'”
“We think about mortality”, adds bassist / singer Troy sanders. “To that end, the album is linked to our entire discography. It’s been in the making for 17 years, but it’s also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to take inspiration from very real things from our own. lives. “
