Mastodon's Brent Hinds: "I hate heavy metal"

Mastodon's Brent Hinds was recently interviewed by Guitar Player, you can read some excerpts below.

Hinds said: "I thought it was rebellious to play heavy metal. Then I met Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, and they were really into heavy metal. Ever since then I’ve been trying to get Mastodon to not be such a heavy metal band."

"I fucking hate heavy metal and I don't want to be in a heavy metal band."

Hinds says he also hates doing interviews, saying: "It frustrates me because I have to talk about things I've talked about over and over again. There's nothing we can talk about that involves Mastodon that I'll get excited about. After 15 years of doing this every fucking day of my life, the last thing I want to do is talk about doing it."
