Watch Me: “Mothers of the Sun” by Black Mountain

Sure, this video is all kinds of hammy, like every metal cliche on a whiteboard made it into the final cut of the video: Occult rituals. Two-headed guitar. Creepy people doing creepy things. Bleak landscapes and horror film landscapes. Lava lamp visuals laid on top of the video footage. Lead guitarist/vocalist Stephen McBean in a Sunn 0))) robe. Shit, there may have been some demons and devils in there, too, and maybe a young lass lost in the woods, but I stopped watching. Still, I'm gonna give Black Mountain some slack because when I'm not watching "Summer of the Sun," I'm hearing the epic acid metal of their more epic than epic 2008 album, In the Future.
