MASTODON Guitarist Brent Hinds “Never Liked Heavy Metal”


In an interview with Guitar Player magazine, Mastodon guitar player Brent Hinds expressed his extreme distaste of heavy metal. His statement is as follows.

“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 20’s where I thought it was rebellious to play heavy metal. Then I met Brann Dailor, MASTODON drummer and Bill Kelliher, MASTODON guitarist, 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.”

I have always loved your music until your comments just made me want to vomit in my mouth sir. I am taken aback! Maybe you should f**k off and move to Nashville. I am so pissed that I aint even going to post a song from you. Good luck doing country, I hope they welcome you with open arms… Don’t count on it…
