METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett has been singing the praises of Sweden's MESHUGGAH, calling the band's music "really fucking interesting."

“You know, I think MESHUGGAH is brilliant," Hammett said in a recent interview with journalist Martin Popoff. "A lot of that extreme stuff doesn't make much sense to me, but when I heard MESHUGGAH, and everybody was talking about them at Ozzfest, I just sort of... I just respect it a lot. That type of stuff, it's not something that I listen to on a daily basis but it's interesting to me. And there's not a lot of metal stuff that is that interesting. But like MESHUGGAH, that's really fucking interesting. You sit there and say, how does he actually play that on drums? And then you start getting into like, well, does he actually play that on drums (laughs)? But it sits in a very different place compared to anything else I've heard."
