Metallica Reveals They Are 'Really Recording' In New Studio Video

(Classic Rock) Metallica have released a teaser video that shows frontman James Hetfield recording guitar parts for the band's long-awaited 10th album. The follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic has been discussed for several years, but the thrash icons only recently confirmed that recording sessions were underway.

The clip is only available to fan club members - but membership is now free. It starts with a welcome from drummer Lars Ulrich, who then leads the camera from a back lot area into the band's studio, where Hetfield, producer Greg Fidelman and others are working.

Ulrich then says: "There's a recording in progress so we'll just say hello real quick. This is James… What are you doing?" Hetfield replies: "Playing drums."

He's then asked to record something while the camera rolls, and when it takes a few seconds to get started, Ulrich says: "Are they recording, are they not recording? Welcome to the 21st century. Any hour now… Oh my God, they're really recording. How cool is that?" Read more here.
