Metallica Talk New Album

Metallica Talk New Album



After almost a four year wait since the release of ’08’s album ‘Death Magnetic’, Metallica have been discussing plans for their tenth studio effort. Although in early stages, the album, which will be produced by Rick Rubin, already consists of “seven or eight” songs, according to drummer Lars Ulrich.

In recent talks with Rolling Stone, Ulrich reveals details of a much simpler album, stating: “We're not going to the depths of complexity that we did for 'Death Magnetic’” promising a “heavier version of what we were doing in the early Nineties”.

Writing has been described as a drawn out process over the last three years of touring. "We do it in rounds,” said Lars. “We come up with something; we leave it, go to the next thing, come up with something basic, leave it and circle back around”.

Also in the pipeline are plans for err… a self-finance 3D film. Yes, really. Despite Kirk Hammett stating they didn’t want to do it at first, the prospect of tying it in with their biggest EVER live show was apparently too much to resist. Look out for this project, complete with unconfirmed surprises, in 2013…

Metallica will play Download Festival 2012 in June, performing The Black Album in full.
