Metallica Guitarist Says the Band Could Begin Work on New Album in ‘A Couple of Weeks’
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.16.2014



Billboard recently spoke with the Kirk Hammett, guitarist for the rock band Metallica who talked about their upcoming follow-up album to Death Magnetic. According to the band, they could begin work on their next album in a few weeks.

Kirk Hammett on when they will start work on their new album: "In a couple of weeks. When we start, that's going to be our main priority, and we're pretty excited about it because we've been saying we need to start working on this album, but we've been procrastinating greatly with it. We've pretty much come up with every sort of excuse we can not to start work on the album, but we've run out of excuses, so we pretty much have to start work on it now."

Hammett on the delay being over a plethora of musical ideas they have: "We're a band that never has a shortage of ideas. You hear about these bands that are sitting in the studio and they don't have any songs, what are they gonna do? That's not Metallica. Metallica's problem is the total opposite. We have too many ideas. James (Hetfield) has, like, 800 ideas. I have 400. Those number alone are just crazy. That's formidable."

Hammett on his plans to perform as a guest with his pre-Metallica band Exodus on the opening night of the FEAR FestEvil: "It's going to be pretty different form your standard sort of, like, comic convention. I want it to be an experience. I want it to be interactive. I want it to have ambience and atmosphere and be something you can actually feel with all five senses. I wanted it to be unique and thrilling, because I really love this stuff. I don't want to come across as some sort of poseur or hipster or anything; I have a real passion for it and I want people who are like-minded to revel in a lot of the same stuff that I revel in and just see how cool it is."

Hammett on the band's upcoming performance of their 1988 single "One" at the Grammy Awards this year: "That's going to be really interesting. It's going to be an arrangement that highlights some of Lang Lang's playing, but we're not lightening up the song just for him. We're still hanging onto all the heavy parts. He's just an amazing pianist; at one point he's going to be, like, weaving in and out of my guitar solo and playing parts of my guitar solo with me. I've never, ever experienced that before with anyone we've ever played with, so I'm going to be pretty psyched to be playing with him, to say the least. It's gonna be amazing."
