Mastodon has shared a 75-minute documentary on the making of its latest album, Emperor Of Sand. As you can see, you can watch it above. The film is composed of 12 smaller featurettes released earlier this year, edited together with 30 minutes of additional never-before-seen footage.
“This is a deep look into the making of the album and the inspiration behind the music. With the Grammy nominations Emperor Of Sand has received this week, we thought it was the perfect time to release it. We hope you enjoy the documentary. If you do, feel free to share it!”
Emperor Of Sand was released last March and debuted at Number Seven on the Billboard 200 album chart. The disc contained the Top Five rock radio single “Show Yourself.” The album has earned two Grammy nominations this year, for Best Rock Album and Best Metal Performance for the song “Sultan’s Curse.” The 60th annual Grammy Awards will be held on January 28th in New York City.
