Blink Art illustrators and now directing duo Essy May and Stevie Gee release their directorial debut for heavy metal behemoths Mastodon's latest single Steambreather.

Directing the live action and 2D animation May and Gee have created a promo that tells the story of two Mastodon fans in bland English suburbia, who stumble across a 'Deep Nasal Enlightenment' breathing workshop. Things gradually start to get weird as the 'Breath of Life' class begins to spell 'Death' for the unsuspecting audience. And then things get very trippy indeed.
