Jean-Michel Labadie's influences bands such as Metallica, Sepultura and Pantera, all which marked the 90s. Then there was the evolution of Deftones and Korn. He liked the emotional aspect. While Gojira is a bit of everything, he also likes death metal. Morbid Angel was very ambient. Cannibal Corpse was much more brutal with its riffs.[2]
