With an expected new album coming for Metallica, members of the band now compares their upcoming release with their previous releases.
In a report by The Guardian , guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed how he felt like the new songs were taken from their previous release “Death Magnetic” and their 1988 release “And Justice For All.”
“It’s a lot similar to ‘Death Magnetic’ but different in certain parts,” Hammett said.
“And, you know, there’s a couple of songs that remind me of something on ‘And Justice for All,’ but the album doesn’t sound like ‘And Justice for All.'” Bassist Robert Trjuillo revealed in an Ultimate Classic Rock report how he thinks the new album would sound like, claiming that it would be heavy and different from their other releases. “I can tell you that what we’re doing sounds heavy, but again, each album is its own little experience,” Trujillo said .
“So we’ll just have to wait and see.” In a Rolling Stone report, Lars Ulrich added to Trujillo’s sentiments on how the sound of the upcoming release would be like.
“In our world, there’s been a distinct difference between the creative phase and the recording phase,” Ulrich said.
“With this project, we’re trying to bridge the two a little more organically and not have there be such a great divide between the processes.
We want to see if we can bring some of the creative curiosity, the impulsive stuff that happens when you’re first playing a song into the studio.” With regard to the release date of the new Metallica album, Ulrich didn’t reveal an exact date but hinted that it is coming soon.
“Compared to the age of the earth and the age of man populating this wonderful planet, it is very close by,” Ulrich said.
“I wouldn’t hold my breath or skip going to the bathroom, but it’s coming.”
