Mastodon’s Brent Hinds: “I Fucking Hate Heavy Metal, And I Don’t Want To Be In A Heavy Metal Band”

Mastodon vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds is more a metalhead by association than by personal preference. Speaking with Guitar World, he was quoted as saying:

“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 and Bill, 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 fucking hate heavy metal, and I don’t want to be in a heavy metal band.”
