If you attended Mastodon’s recent tour with Gojira and Kvelertak (or creeped around the internet to sites like ours), then you got to see the band play “Chimes at Midnight,” another song from Once More ‘Round the Sun. Now, with the album coming out in three weeks (6/24), the band have released another “audio visualizer” video for the song, to match the one they did for “High Road.” Essentially, the song is scored to Skinner’s album artwork (the band’s been teasing the actual video for “High Road,” which should be coming soon). As far as “Chimes,” it starts and slow and melodic before turning into one of the faster songs on the album, with both Troy Sanders and Brent Hinds singing and some great intertwining guitars. It’s obvious on first listen why they made the song an instant addition to their set list.
Once More ‘Round the Sun can be preordered on iTunes, and will come with and instant download of both “High Road” and “Chimes at Midnight.”
