Lars Confirms That Metallica Is Working On New Album

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich confirms in a new interview that the band is working on their next studio album.

Lars tells Metal Hammer in their January 2013 issue that the new material sounds like a continuation of their 2008 release "Death Magnetic."

"The stuff that we were banging out yesterday, it felt heavy, it felt energetic, it was loud, it was fast, it was rocking, it was crazy," said Ulrich.

"The snare drum was on there and there were guitar solos, in case anybody was wondering. What we're doing now certainly sounds like a continuation of where we left off four years ago."

One thing that Ulrich would not confirm is who is producing the album, and had this to say about Rick Rubin who produced "Death Magnetic": "I love Rick, we all love Rick," said Ulrich. "We're in touch with Rick constantly. We'll see where it goes."

The band recently announced that they have launched a new record label, Blackened Records, and have obtained ownership of their complete catalog.

"It's always been about control for us as a band," Ulrich said in the announcement. "Forming Blackened Recordings is the ultimate in independence, giving us 100 percent control and putting us in the driver's seat of our own creative destiny." Interview quotes obtained from Loudwire.
