Metallica Aim For Black Album Sounds On New Album

(Gibson) The next Metallica studio album will feature concise, groove-oriented songs akin to their breakthrough 1991 self-titled chart topper.

In the January 19 edition of Rolling Stone, guitarist Kirk Hammett says the album will be the logical successor to "the black album" in the same way that Death Magnetic carried on the progressive song structures of 1988's …And Justice For All.

Hammett said, "This stuff we're coming up with is more groove-oriented, a heavier version of what we were doing in the early '90s."

Drummer Lars Ulrich says the shorter, more to-the-point material is not likely to be completed this year. "If I said 2012, I'd be lying," Ulrich said. "I hope it's not later than 2013." more on this story
