Metallica's New Album Came Together In Last Two Months Says James


(Metal Hammer) Metallica frontman James Hetfield has revealed that upcoming album "Hardwired... To Self Destruct" only took shape in the past few weeks, even though it's been under production for years.

But he says that's one of the advantages of having their own record label, rather than following orders issued by an outside corporate body. The band's 10th record will be released on November 18 via their Blackened Records firm.

Hetfield tells TwinCities.com: "We've been working on this record, realistically, for eight years. But it's been two years starting to put songs together.

"Literally, the last two months is when it all started to come together. There's no rules any more as far as you've got to do what the record company says or what the manager says. It's got to be cool and fun for us - that's the number-one priority." Read more here.
