(Rock News Desk) Lou Reed insists his collaboration with Metallica is "a marriage made in heaven" and the thrash giants claim the experience has made them a better band.

Fans were astonished yesterday when the "secret project" guitarist Kirk Hammett had alluded to turned out to be a ten-track album made with art-rock icon Reed, 69.

Reed met Metallica at the 25th anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert in New York in 2009, when they backed him for two tracks. "I knew from the first day we played together: 'Oh, man, this is perfection right in front of me. It's a marriage made in heaven," Reed says. "They're bringing Metallica with all that power. And because they're pretty sophisticated, wherever I go they're still with me." more on this story
