(Gibson) Now that Lulu has come and gone, Metallica fans are wondering when they'll be hearing from the metal legends next. Drummer Lars Ulrich recently provided an update to Spin magazine.
"We're free and clear of our record contract. The world's our oyster," Ulrich said. "We can basically do whatever we want. And we're going to start figuring that out."
Indeed, the creative process is in the very early stages. "We're still throwing ideas around," Ulrich said. "We work in stages. Some people will write a song from beginning to end in one go. We don't do that. We'll develop, like, 10 ideas and do a couple cycles. We'll do a verse, chorus and maybe an intro, and then we'll leave them and go develop 10 other ideas. So it's a little early yet because we haven't gone back yet and started tweaking anything. Right now we're throwing ideas at the canvas and picking out great riffs." more on this story
