New Metallica Album Not 100 Percent Metallica
"We want to record it in two weeks," Hammett told Rolling Stone. We had planned on doing it in March, but we pushed it back to May. I don't want to give too much away, but it's not really 100 percent a Metallica record. It's a recording project, let's put it that way. Without getting too deep into it, it's more a recording project than a bona fide Metallica album. Whether or not we can pull it off in just two weeks remains to be seen."
Hammett went on to discuss his excitement for the upcoming Big 4 Festival, which will take place at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California on April 23: "It's like a big class reunion," he said. "It's super cool because I'm really tight with the guys in Anthrax, and I love the guys in Slayer, and you know, I'm never really bothered by the Megadeth guys… With all these bands, the opportunity for all of us to just hang out and look at each and grin and say to each other, 'Look, we're still here.' That's just an amazing thing." more on this story
