Mastodon's Brent Hinds Says He Hates Heavy Metal

Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds sounded off against a number of topics in a new interview with GuitarPlayer Magazine including his hatred of heavy metal and doing interviews.

The magazine published the following excerpts on their website, "I never really liked heavy metal in the first place. I came from Alabama playing country music, surf rock, rockabilly, and stuff like that. I just went through a phase in my 20s where I thought it was rebellious to play heavy metal. And then I met Brann [Dailor, Mastodon drummer] and Bill [Kelliher], and they were really, really, really into heavy metal. And ever since then, I've been trying to get Mastodon to not be such a heavy metal band, because I f**king hate heavy metal, and I don't want to be in a heavy metal band."

"It would be nice if magazines and all interviews would just go fall off the face of the earth along with all the cigarette smoke and all the other f**king things I hate in life. I don't like doing interviews, I don't read interviews, I don't need to know how people go about doing things. It frustrates me to do interviews, because I have to talk about things I've talked about over and over and over and over again. So, no, there's nothing that we can talk about that involved Mastodon that I'll get excited about. After 15 years of doing this every f**king day of my life, the last thing I want to do is talk about doing it." Read more here.
