On the new episode of Revolver's "Fan First" podcast, Mastodon's Brann Dailor shares his personal story of music fandom — from watching his mom's band rehearse every night through to discovering Judas Priest and escalating levels of more extreme bands. He explains why Death's Human was more significant than Metallica's Black Album, his special bond with his late sister Skye over King Diamond, how music got him through his darkest moments, rediscovering drums, his early years in bands, forming Mastodon and their upcoming double album, Hushed and Grim.
