Lars Ulrich: ''Through the Never' Energized Metallica'
Lars Ulrich has been talking with Rolling Stone (via Metal Hammer) about the concert film "Through the Never," and how it energized the band to start work on a new album:

"It gave us a chance to experience a whole other way of being creative and having a creative outlet. We were very inspired by making that [movie], and now we're energised to make a record. The film was fun, but it's all about the next record."

The drummer also notes that the band was disappointed that the film didn't repeat the success of 2004 documentary "Some Kind of Monster:"

"Well, I think anytime you do anything, obviously at some point you're disappointed.

"It seemed with Some Kind Of Monster, there was a group of people that fell in love the film that that weren't necessarily Metallica fans. And I think that we were thinking that there was a shot of that happening too
[with "Through the Never"] and that didn't happen. Maybe we were disappointed that that didn't happen."

Ulrich has also been speaking to Guitar Center about the early days of Metallica. He notes that in the early days, his plan was simply to play Diamond Head covers in his room:

"The one thing that struck me when I came to America was that everybody was talking about making it. I found that there was a particular goal orientated culture in America that I had not experienced growing up in Europe ... I just wanted to play Diamond Head songs and sweat in my room. I wasn't that ambitious ... I think if you can hone in on what your real motive is, and try to be pure, I don't think there can be a right or wrong."
