Mastodon plots Augmented Reality experience for The Hunter

Thanks to bone-crushing tracks and some creepy album art, Georgia metal lords Mastodon made it clear that their upcoming LP, The Hunter, would be a real trip. Turns out, though, that was only half the story.

In the video below, Los Angeles-based tech company Total Immersion outlines the Augmented Reality experience they created with the band. While we could get all technological on y’all, in short, a limited edition album package comes with footage that, when viewed through the album cover, activates the experience. We can’t say for sure what that experience will be, but the safe bet’s on that it’ll be frightening.
