Metallica: 'We Probably Have Three or Four Albums Worth of Material'
Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett gave somewhat of a fresh update regarding the band's upcoming studio effort, focusing once again on the abundance of material the four-piece has piled up.

Explaining to Loudwire how the group is still in the early stages of making the record, Kirk said, "I mean, we've got a lot of riffs. We're blessed with the curse of having too many riffs. So you just have to be patient, but it's a good curse to have.

"We probably have three or four albums worth of material but we want to make one really good album," the guitarist added. "Maybe we'll just throw it all into one song, make it a nine-minute song with all those riffs!"

During a separate chat with Net Entertainment News, Hammett noted how "it's just [about] finding the time to really nail it down and focus. And that will come very soon."

Switching the subject to overall work approach, Kirk added (via Blabbermouth), "And we're old school about it, too; we like to all get in a room and bash it out. I know a lot of bands and a lot of musicians work digitally now, with just trading files, but, you know, we're still cavemen about it.

"We like to get in a room and bash it out and talk amongst ourselves and argue and fight. It's all part of the process, but it still feels real once you get to the end result," he concluded.
