Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett says that he has a lot of "really kick-ass, great material" written for the band's follow-up to their 2016 album "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct."
Hammett shared the following during an appearance on Cosmo Music's "Rockstars In Cars" video series, "I have a lot of stuff written that I've put aside for the band, a lot of stuff.
"Because last album, I didn't have any stuff, 'cause I lost most of my ideas when I lost my phone , over 500 musical ideas. It took me a long time to recover from that.
"And I got it into my head I had to produce twice as much. Basically, I overcompensated. So, as it stands, as we speak, I have a lot of material, really kick-ass, great material, that I just can't wait to show the other guys and turn into some music, record, get the album out and have more kick-ass metal."
