Metallica's Ulrich Explains Long Album Delay

(Classic Rock) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has explained the long delay between their last album, 2008's Death Magnetic, and their upcoming 10th release Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, due on November 18.

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."
