The New Mastodon Video Will Give You Wood

Posted by on September 22, 2011


A “burl” is described as a deformed growth on a tree, which sort of makes Mastodon’s song title “Curl of the Burl” make some degree of sense. Making somewhat less sense is the band’s video for the first single from The Hunter. It’s pretty awesome, and more than a little hysterical. Anyone that’s seen the movie Creepshow might remember the vignette “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill,” in which author Stephen King discovers a meteorite that turns him into a plant. The “Curl of the Burl” video seems to borrow from that, but throws drugs and women into the mix, along with – well, just watch it. Any Evil Dead fans will also be satiated by the video as well. The Hunter comes out on Tuesday (27).
