Metallica: 'We Still Feel the Need to Be Creative and Make Music'
Discussing the metal giants' upcoming plans, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett gave fans a strong reassurance that the new album is now the band's primary focus.

The axeman reached the subject while talking about "Kill 'Em All" anniversary, noting that the band's debut effort shows just how unpredictable life can be. "You know, when 'Kill 'Em All' came out, we were just four guys who were just barely out of our teens who knew that we wanted to play music, and knew that we wanted to make a living out of this music, and knew that we wanted to be the best band that we could possibly be," Kirk told Invisible Oranges.

"I can tell you from the depths of my heart that I am still very, very hungry, and I still feel the need to be creative and make music," he continued. "I know that James feels the same way. I know that Lars feels the same way. I know Rob feels the same way. We have no idea what the next couple of years are gonna give us.

"We know we have to make a new album [laughs]," the guitarist said. "We know we have to make it soon, but whatever's gonna come in the wake of that remains to be seen. We certainly don't know, and when we figure it out we'll make sure you guys have an opportunity to check it out."

Asked about the officially announced performance of a new song on upcoming summer concert dates, Hammett wasn't quite certain about the whole idea. "I don't know [laughs]," he said. "We know that we've gotta do something, and so whether or not that happens or not, we don't really know. If we write a song, and we feel it’s in good enough shape for us to play it live, then we definitely will play it live."
