Metallica’s New Album Itching To Commence Autumn 2014

The legendary gods of all things metal Metallica are itching ever so close to a kick-off date for their brand new album, with hopes of hitting the studio early next year with enough new riffology to sink a ship reveals frontman James Hetfield.

In a recent stop with Oakland Press for their maiden feature film Through The Never Tour Hetfield revealed: “I’m itchin’. We have tons of material to sift through. That takes a lot of time, because there’s a lot of great stuff. I know we only need a few songs, but there’s 800 riffs we’re going through. It’s kind of insane. We have sifted through a lot of the stuff and pulled the cream of the crop — it’s just sitting there waiting for us to take it to the next level,” adding “I know we do need to decompress after this, get this 'Through The Never' film thing out of our systems. It’s taken up a lot of time and a lot of effort. We go full-throttle into something and multitasking is not what we’re after. So the next record will hopefully start some time in the spring.”

Metallica has a talent of raising the bar with every release they do, and it seems films also fit the bill with Through The Never reaching $2.724 million so far, with Hetfield just being excited to have the baby out of the womb and walking around: “As far as (box office) numbers coming back, management is certainly a little more focused on numbers and all of that and what it means. I don’t know much about the movie world. As an artist, I just like that the thing is out there. It’s exactly what we wanted, and we’re proud of it.”

Through The Never is out in Australian cinemas now! A recent film release and a new album to come. It the words of Hetfield ‘Oooh yeah heh!’
