Metallica: 'We've Been Detoured From Making a New Record'
As various music-related projects kept metal titans Metallica well occupied throughout the year, it became blatantly obvious that 2013 wasn't going to mark the release of band's new record. Bassist Rob Trujillo recently went on to admit that the four-piece was clearly distracted from the new studio material by such projects, calling it somewhat of a double-edged sword. "Before all the film stuff, we were jamming these ideas and having a lot of fun," Rob told the Pulse of Radio. "But we got sidetracked. In 2014 it'll be all about getting new music - without any interruptions, hopefully." He continued, "Obviously for next year, our priority has to be making a new record. We've been detoured from that through the course of the year. We had about six weeks or so where we were really focusing on a new album and writing and then, you know, somehow we ended up hitting the road. And then at the same time we've got to promote this film. We get sidetracked by great things - it's a blessing and a curse." Trujillo also discussed the new record's direction with Classic Rock, saying that the thrash factor is once again back in the formula. "It feels like 'Death Magnetic' was the launch pad it's the introduction to what we have now," he said (via Blabbermouth). "That's one thing I'm excited about - there's the thrash element back in the mix. It's kind of been missing in the past." Metallica recently posted two making-of clips of their "Through the Never" 3D film. Check them out below.
