Metallica Frontman Explains Hardwired Album Title


(Classic Rock) James Hetfield has explained some of the thinking behind the title of upcoming Metallica album Hardwird… To Self-Destruct. The follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic is released on November 18 and the band have already unveiled Hardwired, Moth Into Flame and Atlas, Rise! from the tracklist.

Hetfield tells Radioacktiva: "A friend of mine, sometimes he and I would get in trouble a lot, and it's just that we're hardwired that way. I need my friends to tell me some better decisions sometimes - and sometimes I don't. I'm wondering if man in general is wired one way or another.

"A lot of these songs deal with man on the planet. Who do we think we are? In the history of the universe we've been around a millisecond, and we think we can control the world and global warming and everything.

"Do we really have that kind of control - or is it that our time is finished? I don't know." Read more here.
