Metallica have been working on the follow up to 2008’s ‘Death Magic’ for quite a while, with hints all year that it might not be that far off.
And now we’ve another one: frontman James Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett performed the National Anthem at a San Jose Sharks hockey game recently, and talked a bit about their upcoming release beforehand.
“We’re mixing it now, so hopefully by fall it’ll be out and hitting people’s ears,” explained James. “We’re super stoked about it.
“It’s been a long time coming, and, you know, this is what we do. We love playing, and the next album is exactly what it’s supposed to be, so we’re excited about it.”
