Sepultura frontman says metal fans are ‘close minded’

Frontman and vocalist of Sepultura (not Max, the other dude), Derrick Green, was recently interviewed by RushOnRock.com.

Not a whole lot in the interview of interest to me, but if you’re a fan of the new lineup of Sepultura (allegedly their new album is awesome. I have yet to hear it though), you may just want to check it out. Otherwise, an excerpt can be read below.

RushOnRock.com: For a band ever-changing there always will be critics but you must be accustomed to that now?

Green: For sure, and the new style of music, people are very critical. Especially in metal music, I find that a lot of people can be very closed-minded — they want to listen to metal and nothing else, but I’m not like that. I like doing metal music and having a heavy style, but I don’t like to put myself in such a box and be trapped in it, because I’m not like that. I like to do different style of music but I think there’s always room for evolution in the music. I love the old classic bands from the past but I like the new bands a lot too and I’m grateful they’re out there exploring and experimenting.

Personally I like being a close minded metal fan. If I can live an existence of being entirely unaware of who Rebecca Black is, why people are always making Friday jokes I don’t get, and what the latest Lady Gaga song sounds like, then I guess ignorance is bliss. Now, if you don’t mind Derrick, I think I’m going to listen to some Slayer and then finish off by drinking some goats’ blood and telling my friends how dumb they are for listening to pop music.
