The members of Metallica are quite vocal in comforting fans they won’t need to endure another eight-year look forward to a brand new record like they did with Hardwired… To self-destruct. They haven’t gone back to the studio nonetheless, however after they do, Kirk Hammett will be prepared with what he’s calling a “ton” of material.
Noting the currentlydisreputable eight-year gap between Death Magnetic and Metallica’s most up-to-date album, Hammett recalled a farcompletely different recording cycle when he was growing up in an interview with Australia’s Mixdown magazine. “When I used to be 13-14 years previous, bands put out albums per annum. Seriously, KISS place out an album each eight months,” he aforesaid, scorning, “None of this eight years between albums
The musician went on to admit, “None of us are very comfy with the actual fact it’s been so long, because that’s longtime. We’re hoping to avoid that this point around.”
“We’re in our third year since Hardwired,” Hammett continued , taking stock of Metallica’s current state of affairs. “Maybe we are able to get a bit additional focus and get into the studio a bit sooner,” he hoped, revealing, “I have a ton of material. I’ve over-compensated, therefore I’m ready to go anytime.”
A ton is the astandard unit of measure for 907.185 kg. therefore either Hammett has 1,500 additional riffs than once he said he had “about 500” ideas in late 2017 or the riffs are that heavy.
