Metallica Plan to start recording their New Album this autumn
Things are moving fast for Metallica; the band will be recording their new album in autumn and you can bet your last dollar that it is going to enjoy a festival boom. When the project is completed, it will be the follow-up to their 2008 album titled ‘Death Magnetic’. The real work on the new material is scheduled to kick off in September and in all probability they will either finish it off by the end of the year or early next year. Their drummer Lars Ulrich said that they are busy preparing to go back to the studio after a number of engagements.
In any case Metal Hammer had already reported that the group had a host of material that they could officially lay down once they hit the studio. Ulrich says that every time James Hetfield picks up a guitar, there are always some brilliant riffs that he is able to come up with. Therefore by implication the band is never short of material. Lars ensures that all that is achieved during these impromptu sessions is recorded as well as putting some drums in for good measure.
What can we expect from the band in September?
Metallica has tons of ideas according to its members. Therefore the process of writing a new album is not going to be difficult at all. They already have a movie under their belt and they also worked on a forthcoming event at the ‘Outside Lands’ festival. During all those events, the band was coming up with ideas which they hope to incorporate into their forthcoming studio album. Currently they are happy to concentrate on their music career rather than engaging in side activities which tend to take up a lot of their time.
Nevertheless they have found the space to work on a 3D Film Project. It will be helmed by Nimrod Antal. He directed the predators and will surely bring a lot of professionalism to the new project. They will also play at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco. This is where they will be from the 10th to the 12th of August. Their Golden Gate Park appearance will however not detract them from the work that needs to be done on their forthcoming album.
Of course we cannot forget some of the wacky things that Metallica has done. One of the most moving pet projects was the public service video which was designed to help the FBI find a man who was connected with the death of a Virginia Tech student. Apparently the student had disappeared after one of their concerts.
