Metallica to Kick Off New Album Work Next Spring, Says James Hetfield
Although their "Through the Never" 3D film is still very much in the public limelight, metal behemoths Metallica are already looking towards the next point on their horizon - the new album. Frontman James Hetfield addressed the "Death Magnetic" follow-up during a recent Oakland Press interview, and it would seem that the guys are quite pumped up about doing some writing. "Hopefully it happens soon," James explained. "I'm itchin'. We have tons of material to sift through. That takes a lot of time, because there's a lot of great stuff. I know we only need a few songs, but there's 800 riffs we're going through." He continued, "It's kind of insane. We have sifted through a lot of the stuff and pulled the cream of the crop — it's just sitting there waiting for us to take it to the next level." Hetfield then decided to give more specific details and narrow down the studio entrance date. "I know we do need to decompress after this, get this film thing out of our systems. It's taken up a lot of time and a lot of effort. We go full-throttle into something and multitasking is not what we're after," he said. "So the next record will hopefully start some time in the spring," the frontman concluded. James also touched on the matter of Orion Music festival, saying that if the band has its way, the event will return to Detroit's Belle Isle in 2014. "It's kind of up to the promoters at this point," he explained. So it's 800 riffs, spring studio entrance and hopefully another chart-topper for the metal icons.
