James Hetfield Says Metallica is Recording New Album
Metal fans rejoice, but don't hold your breath! It would seem that thrash metal legends Metallica are back in the studio recording a new album according to a recent interview with front man James Hetfield.
This will be the band's first new album since 2008's Death Magnetic and their 2011 collaboration with the late Lou Reed Lulu. The closest thing to new music we have gotten out of them at all lately is a single called Lords of Summer.
The news came when Hetfield was interviewed by EMGTv. He says:
“We’re recording right now, and there’s the No. 1 guitar, the No. 2 guitar and here’s the third-track guitars that just sound different. They all sound different.”
Hopefully this time around Metallica actually sounds like Metallica and not a crappy Metallica tribute band. It's kind of hard to have that youthful energy though when they are at their age and mellowed and worn out. They don't have anything to really be angry at any more. I guess all we can do is hope for the best.
