Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier sang praises of Scandinavian metal fans and their deep understanding of the genre, saying (transcribed by UG):
"People there understand metal like nowhere else in the world. It's almost like they went to school to study metal.
"People's attention, presence, the way they look at us onstage - it looks like they're almost analyzing what we're doing in the codes.
"There's a deep understanding and it's not surprising that some of the best bands in the world are from Scandinavia. It's really special."
