Kirk Hammett confirms Metallica are recording

Share This:

Kirk Hammett has confirmed that Metallica are in the studio recording new songs, which reinforces the comment that James Hetfield made in a recent video interview.

While speaking to Ultimate Classic Rock, Hammett said the new material was along the lines of Death Magnetic.

“It’s heavy. We’ve got some heavy stuff going. It delivers on that front, for sure. You know, I would say a lot of it is along the lines of ‘Death Magnetic’. A lot of it seems to be going along those lines. But, you know, with social media now and everything else, I’m a little bit wary to comment too much on the album, because then people pick up on it. Then people think that that’s the final definitive statement on what this album is, or how much of it is done, or what it sounds like or whatever — and that’s not really the case. It’s not accurate. [Laughs] We’re still working on it.”

Drummer Lars Ulrich recently told RollingStone.com that METALLICA had written close to 20 new songs for its new album, although he declined to offer a possible release date for the new CD.
