MASTODON's Emperor Of Sand "Making Of" Documentary Streaming In Full; Includes 30 Minutes Of Never Before Seen Footage

"Earlier this year we released a 12-part series showing the making of our album Emperor Of Sand," says Mastodon. "We’ve cut it all together, added over 30 minutes of never before seen footage and turned it into a documentary!

"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!

"Thanks to Jimmy Hubbard helping us put this together!"
