Alter Bridge star Myles Kennedy had a new interview with Rock Sverige and paid his respect to Gojira by calling them the most important metal act in the world right now.

As you may read Myles’ statements below, he claimed that Gojira is the most important metal band in the world.

Here is what he said:

“When I wrote that riff, I had certainly been listening to a lot of Gojira, so it was something that I could see was totally rubbing off on what I was feeling at the moment.

I think that they’re, in my opinion, the most important metal band out there right now. They’re moving the needle as far as newer bands go… bands within the last two decades.

They blow my mind and the cool thing about Gojira is that they’re also incredibly cool guys, for as talented as they are. They’re really just stand up, great individuals, so I’m definitely rooting for them. They’re special.”

He continued:

“I think a lot of the rhythms that take place under a lot of the riffs really help establish their sound and that’s part of what makes them so unique. I mean, I could just go on and on. There are just so many elements and the visual elements are great too.

Their production is amazing and they’ve just got all the boxes checked. They’re really a groundbreaking band and they’re going to be around for a long time.”
