During a recent appearance on Loudwire Nights, Robert Trujillo (Metallica) was asked what band he would hand the metal crown over to if he had to tomorrow. Avenged Sevenfold were one band named.
When asked what band he would feel comfortable handing the crown over to if it happened tomorrow, Trujillo initially responded, “Oh, you’re going to get me in trouble. There’s a lot of great young bands out there. Man, that’s tough.”
The bassist then made his endorsements, adding, “I love Gojira because they’re a great band and I love their new album. Avenged Sevenfold has some nice stuff coming out. I am not going to pick one band, but I think that it would be great for young bands all across the planet to embrace hard rock and heavy metal and start making great music and really take it to another level.”
