Metallica To Begin Working On New Album

(hennemusic) Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett says the band has "run out of excuses" will start working on material for their long awaited new studio album "in a couple of weeks."

"When we start, that's going to be our main priority," Hammett tells Billboard, "and we're pretty excited about it because we've been saying we need to start working on this album, but we've been procrastinating greatly with it. We've pretty much come up with every sort of excuse we can not to start work on the album, but we've run out of excuses, so we pretty much have to start work on it now."

Some of the foot-dragging, Hammett says, is the idea of facing a plethora of musical ideas the group has assembled. "We're a band that never has a shortage of ideas," he notes.

"You hear about these bands that are sitting in the studio and they don't have any songs, what are they gonna do? That's not Metallica. Metallica's problem is the total opposite. We have too many ideas. James (Hetfield) has, like, 800 ideas. I have 400. Those number alone are just crazy. That's formidable." more on this story
