On Friday Metallica To Begin Work On New Album was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) During a conference call with reporters this week to promote their upcoming headlining set at the Outside Lands festival, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich revealed the band's plans to begin a new album following the event.
"Pretty much when we're done with the [3D] movie [project] and with Outside Lands, which should all be wrapped up by early September," explained Ulrich, "We're gonna basically just concentrate on new music and try to get another Metallica record [done]."
As for new music, Ulrich says there's no shortage of inspiration. Every time James Hetfield picks up a guitar, there are some brilliant riffs that come out of it, and I try to make sure that they are all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums in behind them," he says. "So there are, obviously, tons of ideas sitting around waiting to be had at in terms of turning ideas of James' into songs." - more on this story
