Metallica Avoiding Online Negativity Over New Music: Metallica News


On Thursday Metallica Avoiding Online Negativity Over New Music was a top story. Here is the recap: (Metal Hammer) Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett refuses to let himself read online comments about latest track Hardwired, in case they make him feel as if he shouldn't have bothered recording it.

He'd rather preserve the "great buzz" he has about the song, which will appear on 10th album Hardwired… To Self Destruct when it arrives on November 18.

The band debuted Hardwired on stage in Minneapolis at the weekend, just five days after they'd first played it together. Hammett tells 93X: "I feel the excitement, the energy in the air. We're all kind of picking up on it. I'm getting a tremendous amount of texts from friends, saying, 'Great song! Wonderful song!

"But as soon as I go onto my computer I think to myself, 'Should I read what other people are saying? Should I read some comments?' I instantly say to myself, 'Don't go there.' Because I'll get angry, then frustrated, then confused - and then want to write it all off as just f---ing useless bull---. 'Why did I even waste my time?'" Read more - here.
