Ulrich gives details on the film and more…
Lars Ulrich recently spoke with Billboard about their appearance at the Outside Lands Festival, their upcoming 3D film and more. Check out the highlights:
On comparisons to Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Dame: "Yeah, I've got my horse and my sword and my battle armor. Not quite that, but there are stranger references than 'The Song Remains the Same.' I certainly don't mean to be disrespectful in that way; I have nothing but love for Led Zeppelin and 'The Song Remains the Same.' (The film) is a narrative, and the rest of the stuff that goes on outside of the concert is not going to feature members of Metallica...in any way, shape or form. It's a split narrative that kind of runs parallel to the concert."
On doing another Orion Festival next year: "We're definitely looking to either keep (it) in New Jersey or keep it on the East Coast."
On their next album: "It's been a very full year with trying to launch the festival and get this music project up and running. And you're sort of itching... I mean, every time James Hetfield picks up a guitar there's some brilliant riff that comes out of him, and I try to make sure that they're all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums behind them. In terms of turning ideas into songs, pretty much when we're done with the movie and with Outside Lands... we're going to basically just concentrate on new music and trying to get another Metallica record will be the priority. I mean, it's an amazing thing, 31 years into a career, to be able to be as busy as we are and for people to give a s***."
