As for what Metallica has been as much as currently, it would contain new music? Kirk Hammett just lately participated in NME‘s sport show-style quiz Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?!, the place musicians are requested questions on moments all through their profession. Hammett cruised via the quiz earlier than hitting a snag on the ultimate query – what is the take care of a brand new Metallica album? To which he responds that he cannot discuss concerning the new Metallica album. Which y’know, signifies that there’s in all probability a brand new Metallica album being labored on.
“I am not supposed to speak concerning the new album. Everybody warns me ‘Do not discuss concerning the new album!’, so you possibly can ask me 20 questions and it will simply be me politely discovering other ways of me saying ‘I am unable to discuss concerning the new album!'”
The brand new Metallica album would be the band’s first since Hardwired… to Self-Destruct in 2016. Hammett just lately gave an interview about his new solo launch Portals. Within the interview, Hammett mentions Metallica engineer Greg Fidelman twice, saying he “had his arms full with all types of different Metallica stuff” and “he was as much as his neck in different Metallica commitments.” In fact that might be mixing some stay materials and even engaged on the Load and Reload field units… or perhaps it was new music? I assume we’ll discover out quickly sufficient.
