Ulrich says recording is "much more sporadic" for Metallica than it used to be as they all want to remain close to their families in San Francisco during the process.
He tells TV (via Blabbermouth): "When you're at home, usually you drop the kids at school in the morning, come down to the studio at nine or 10, and then kind of work or record or grind or whatever until school pickup around three or four and then get into family mode.
"So it's kind of a different management of time when you make a record at home rather than when you go somewhere else, but I wouldn't change any of it.
"But it just sort of puts a different kind of focus on the record. But I'd like to think that the looser kind of approach has also helped the record sound a little less manic and precise and perfection-based, and we've got a good mix of some cool sonics and some cool, little-looser-around-the-edges and some kicking songs."

On their decision to record a cover version, CBP leader Justin Greaves tells TeamRock: "Crippled Black Phoenix have a history of occasionally recording cover versions, usually as extra tracks or for compilation albums. This time, while recording Bronze, it occurred to me that our version of the classic Joe Walsh song Turn To Stone was worthy of being part of the actual album.
"The original is such a great song and I think it fits with the Crippled Black Phoenix approach to playing good, honest rock music. It got even better as we had the great fortune of having Arvid Jonsson from Greenleaf coming to the studio session in Stockholm to do some wicked guest vocals. His voice fits the songs so well."
The band will head out on a European tour in December in support of Bronze. See the dates and stream the cover songhere.
