When Metallica first announced that they are working on a new album, fans were pumped up and eager to know how it will sound.
The wait is over as Kirk Hammett said that the Metallica new album will be in the middle of “Lords Of Summer” and “Justice.” Also, he said that the album is 25% done.
The news came from SiriusXM (via Blabbermouth ) that the Metallica new album will be “a bit more progressive” than “Lords of Summer,” while having a comparable approach to “Justice.” “I would say some of the stuff [we have written] is similar to ‘Lords of Summer,’ Hammett said.
“‘Lords Of Summer’ is pretty accessible, because I think it’s one of the more accessible-sounding riffs and there’s a really cool melody.
A lot of the other material is a little bit more progressive – kind of along the lines of what ‘Death Magnetic’ turned out to be.” “I would say that there’s some really, really hooky stuff coming through – really, really catchy stuff – and I’m really, really psyched on the direction of how things are sounding.
If I could compare it to anything, maybe it might be remotely similar to the approach we took on ‘…And Justice for All,’ but it doesn’t sound like ‘…And Justice For All’ sonically – it doesn’t have that sound that ‘…And Justice for All’ had, which I thought was very unique at the time,” he added.
“I listen to a lot of metal bands today, and there are bands that really like that ‘…And Justice For All’ sound and strive for that.
And cool, man.
I mean, they’re actually doing it better than we did, ’cause you can hear the bass,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Metal Hammer reported that Metallica new album is 25% finished.
