Metallica to work on new album
Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett tells Guitar World magazine that the band will be buckling down in September to get to work on the follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic.
"We totally want to make an album," Hammett said. "But...we have families now. It's gonna be summertime soon and it's hard to work [then] because the kids are out of school."
He also said that the band has "a backlog of riffs in the riff bank. Now it's about picking riffs out, putting them together and moving along. Later, we'll revisit it all and see where it goes."
