Details Of New Album "Hell Hath No Fury..." Revealed By Metallica

Two weeks ago, Metallica leaked the first taste of the new material with the release of the demo track "Lords of Summer". Now the band has announced that the new album is complete and will be entitled "Hell Hath No Fury...." The album is tentatively set to drop on April 1, 2015 via its own Blackened Recordings with distribution through Warner Brothers Records.

Drummer Lars Ulrich commented: "When we played 'Lords of Summer' live for the first time, we felt re-energized - like it was 1983. James, Kirk and our bass player all felt as if the time was right to start anew. 'Death Magnetic' was just the start of the return back to the roots...but I promise that 'Hell Hath No fury..." will have a greater impact on fans than 'Master of Puppets.'"

Guitarist Kirk Hammett added: "One of the things I wanted to do on this new album is return to the glory of the guitar solo. There is one with a four minute solo and I am so proud of the band for finally taking this all back to where it started. It definitely feels reborn!"

Vocalist/Guitarist James Hetfield commented: "'Hell Hath No Fury' is the dawn of a new era for Metallica. We went back to a dark place and resurrected some old friends of ours. I made strides to get that rough edge back on my vocals and it really made a big difference in the direction of the album."

The bass player stated: "The new album is going to slay everyone. I am so excited to be part of this. Cliff would be proud!"

The track list for "Hell Hath No Fury..." is:

1. The Fire Lord
2. Black Death
3. Lords of Summer (Demo Streaming Here)
4. Trapped With No Escape
5. Hell Hath No Fury...
6. The Unforgiven IV
7. Sanity Harvest
8. Heroes Never Come Home
9. He Who Should Not Be Named...Dies
10. Battery (2014 Version)
11. Unto the Ages of Ages (Witchfynde Cover) (Bonus Track)

Ooooooh!!! I'm so gonna pre-order this!!! The song titles alone are a signal of a return to form. I'm so glad that Lars got those double bass lessons from George Kollias. This is gonna be killer!!!!

Why do we have to wait a whole year if the album is done? I never got to see Metallica when I was younger because they sold out in minutes. I was excited to possibly see them live supporting the new album. I hope i'm alive next year to see it! I'm excited to hear them get back to their roots!!!

I assume this is an April fool's joke. As much as I want this to be true, I can't see it that it is done. Plus, Robert is not even given a name in the article. A dead giveaway is unforgiven 4.

Do you guys realise what day it is? Metallica did not start and finish the album in a matter of weeks, no one is that good. They would never wait a full year and release it on another April Fool's Day, the fact that the prankster who wrote the article doesn't know the bassists name is Robert Trujillo should be proof enough. It was still a pretty good read, if it wasn't posted today and if the article used the bassists name, I would have almost believed it myself.

Come on .. really? Each "new song" title references an old Metallica song: Phantom Lord, Creeping Death, Harvester of Sorrow, etc. The album cover artwork is Master of Puppets and the devil looking guy is from the "Jump in the Fire" cover. The slanted Metallica logo is from the "Black Album".

This April Fools joke is weak .. says the bass player .. LOL

according to a hit parader magazine reporter, this is a ploy by the band to resurrect the fanbase they lost during the transition from a thrash band to a rock band, bob rock was involved with this idea as well

The lyrics to the song He Who Should Not Be Named. . .Dies have been released

Messenger of Trolls in sight
Black the Album Hit the Lights

Hymen broken watch her pee
H.P. Lovecraft Sonia Greene

Endless riff
Bludgeoning
He listens
Muffled beneath the sea
Same Old Riff
This band so trite
He purges
Hearer of this garbage is ralphing
Immortal
In Blashyrkh you dwell

Trolling chaos above ground
Metallisheep defend their sound

Heard in ruins once possessed
Band is sh**ty, Creeping Death

Endless riff
Calamity
They play on
Trolling into the sea
James Hetfield
The barking dog
He Napsters
Stealer of Mustaine’s riffs is rising
Immoral
In poseur you sell

Not dead which it now does sigh
Heard Metallica they must die!

This again makes us worthy
Sarcastic you ask, “O, R’Lyeh?”

Lars Ulwretch
Douchebaggery
His talents
Only to keep a beat
Same Old Song
This band so trite
Their doldrums
Hunter of the shadows declining
Now mortal
In gladness death dwell

What day is it April 1st., did you say? And just who is this 'BASS PLAYER?'
This is either a bad April Fool's calling a member of METALLICA, The bass player.
