Metallica Frontman Has More Than Enough Riffs For New Album
"Hopefully [we will return to the studio] soon," Hetfield said. "I'm itchin'. We have tons of material to sift through. That takes a lot of time, because there's a lot of great stuff.
"I know we only need a few songs, but there's 800 riffs we're going through. It's kind of insane. We have sifted through a lot of the stuff and pulled the cream of the crop it's just sitting there waiting for us to take it to the next level."
Hetfield hopes to record in Spring 2014, but drummer Lars Ulrich reckons it will be 2015 before a new album is finally done. Ulrich tells Kerrang! magazine, "Obviously, there are a lot of people asking where the next record is. We're going to make another record, but like I said before, we don't really feel this kind of what's the word? I guess 'responsibility' is probably the right word.
"We don't feel this inherent responsibility to just churn out records whenever people want them If I was betting on this, I would say 2015 that's where my money is." more on this story
