New Metallica Recording 'Soon'
Metallica have scheduled their next album recording, and plan to start soon, though it might not see a release until 2014. Kirk Hammet told Rolling Stone (via Blabbermouth) about how they're waiting on other projects before they can get started, but once the road is clear they can focus on making a new album. "Right now, we're kind of preoccupied with dealing with this 3D movie that we shot up in Canada last month. So that's kind of taking our time right now - that's the priority, to deal with that. But once we're done with that, we're going to start hunkering down and putting riffs together. That's all going to happen soon", he said. Hammet suggested that Rick Rubin, the producer behind 2008's widely-criticised "Death Magnetic", would once again be at the helm: "I really don't have an answer about Rick Rubin, although his name certainly comes up". Metallica are free of their contract with Warner since their last album, which frees them up to experiment with releasing the album on their own terms. James Hetfiled says it's a good feeling to be free of their contract. "We've learned a lot about record companies, the goods and evils of the business and this and that", he said. "It is what it is, and when it becomes time for us to either renegotiate or shop around or do things ourselves or something like that, we don't know. There's nothing but options, which is great". Do you have high hopes for the new Metallica record? How would you feel if Rick Rubin was confirmed as producer? Let us know in the comments.
