White whale, holy grail

How fucking psyched are we for Mastodon's "Seabeast" video, which finally gets around to staging the epic whitefugginwhale deathmatch portrayed in so many of Leviathan's songs? We have no words, only the above pix courtesy of Ryan Russell via Relapse, who provided these details:

. . . was shot on location at the historic Madison Theater in the band's hometown of Atlanta, GA . . . The video for “Seabeast” dictates the great battle between Ahab, Mr. Queequeg, pride and creatures of the sea . . . was shot with a hand cranked 35 mm camera employing many of the filmmaking techniques of the 20’s and 30’s . . . Director [Jonathan] Rej comments: “The Madison Theater was the perfect location to shoot such a video as it was opened in 1927 as a silent movie theater and was the first theater in Atlanta to show talkies. This is the first time the theater has been used in almost 30 years.”

Same dudes also did the last video, which was ridonculous, in case you forgot:
