Metallica: 'We Want to Make a Record, That's What We Do Best'
Metallica frontman James Hetfield has been talking with Detroit News about the prospects for the band's upcoming album. As Hetfield notes, while the album has been delayed because of a number of projects, the band is getting geared up to start recording in the spring. "We have been pushing that further and further away," he says. "We want to make a record, that's what we do best and that's what we've gotta do in springtime. We've got skeleton bones that we're starting to lay out to make something out of it, but there's a lot of work ahead of us that we're really excited about doing. And that will be next year." Metallica's vocalist/guitarist also discussed the band’s plans to tour the elaborate stage show that features in their recently released concert film "Through The Never:" "It’s 30 years of all the theatrical props and ideas put into one stage," says Hetfield, mentioning the crosses from "Master of Puppets" and the giant Lady Justice statue that crumbles during "...And Justice for All." "It's all of the things put into one, but on steroids." While original plans to use the theatrical props were shelved because of film commitments, Hetifeld insists that "it can't not be toured," noting that "the stage is too cool to not tour eventually."
