Metallica Members Talk About New Album

In the latest issue of the METALLICA Club (the group's official fan club) members-only magazine "So What!" METALLICA's James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich offer more insight into the songwriting process for the group's forthcoming album. "We don't want pretty good, we want excellent and [producer] Rick Rubin is getting us to try and achieve that," Hetfield is quoted as saying. "He's [Rick] very good at getting the essence of an artist out and bringing that back to the top again. It's the 'Master of Puppets' mentality again. You need to prove the world that you're good, you need to be hungry again — you need to [put on] a showcase that says, 'Here we are, just like the first time we did it.'"

Added Hammett: "It's about doing the best that you possibly can. I have difficulty wading through all the ideas because I'm biased — I think everything we do has a lot of merit to it. In that regard Rick Rubin is great because he will just say, 'Such and such a part is not good, so come up with something else.' He just leaves the problem up to us and we just solve it between ourselves without too much interference from his side, which is completely different from [longtime METALLICA producer] Bob Rock whose musical thinking would permeate the record. Rick Rubin leaves a lot of the musical problem solving to ourselves, which keeps it more pure."

Lars commented: "A lot of the work we did after the band nearly broke up [during the making of 2003's 'St. Anger'] was not going to be so evident on the record we made at the time, but more evident on the next record, which is the one weré making now. This has been a much more enjoyable experience, much more fun, creatively stimulating and working with Rick is helping a lot."

Ulrich told Examiner.com in October that the band's upcoming album will be "heavier" yet more "melodic" than "St. Anger". Ulrich explained, "Whereas 'St. Anger' was an exercise in over-pummeling the listener, these new songs echo some of our stuff from the '80s — long, epic journeys through different musical landscapes, heavier, but a lot more melodic." When asked whether the new songs will be shorter, in the four-to-five minute range, Ulrich said, "Well, the most of the intros are four to five minutes. I don't know — METALLICA and short songs just don't go that well together."

The new METALLICA album is tentatively due in the spring.

Metallica will never finish as long as James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich are allive. Yes, they nearly broke up, but they coped through that, just like they coped through Cliff's passing. They started off with Dave Mustaine and Ron McGovney, and now they've got Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo. They even survived when grunge came along and killed metal - now Emo is ruining the public's view of the metal franchise - but Metallica, as always, will live on.

Maybe why music all sounds the same is that bands are trying to please the same handful of producers. The producers are making the same album over and over just with different musicians.

Metallica has sucked since justice. They always say this is going to be a great album, but always seem to disappoint the old fans. The new fans never had a chance to experienc Metallica in their glory (Master, Kill em All...etc.) Getting rid of that idiot Bob (cock) Rock is the best decision they have made in years. For the sake of us all let's hope they are serious this time around.

I'm giving this album a shot. The band have put alot of time and effort into this thing already, more than any album they've made in 10 years, even former fans have to be a little curious.

And Rubin has helped sculpt some important artists and albums. He even has a knack for making mediocre artists put out strong music from time to time. Not to mention greats like Johnny Cash, The Beastie Boys and Slayer(!).

I do hope that all of that turmoil was lost in the previous record and that this record will be what they say it is. I'm trying to not judge it before it comes out, but I'm starting to get my hopes up. I don't want another MoP or And Justice but if they had that vibe and force, I'd be happy. Please don't take that record and just redo it, give me something new.

If it's anything like the demo floating about the net, it's gonna be heavy metal, but pretty average. Still, they're improving on everything by the looks of it. I reckon it'll be a "quite good" album. Hopefully the whole thing unlike St Anger with only a couple of enjoyable tracks

ICED EARTH have been kicking their arse for years anyway, check 'em out especially Dark Saga, Something Wicked, Horror Show albums. If you like heavy metal and haven't got those you have seriously lost the plot. New album just out too.. time to look for it

And stop bashing Metallica, they were one of the best and brought us some of the best metal ever ;)

I just get the feeling that St. Anger didn't please the band, like it's something they're not proud of without actually saying it. If that's the case, this next release will be completely different from that, especially with what they are saying. Regardless, there will never be another Master of Puppets. How could they possible produce something to that standard again? No matter how great the next album could be, in the "fans" eyes, they will never be the Metallica of old. Which, I believe, is a shame.

If you look at bands that have stayed "true" throughout the years (Megadeth, Slayer, Exodus, Pantera) I just don't see Metallica going completely back to what they once were. If they were smart, they would would release the thrashiest album they have ever completed and win their old fans back. They have made more money than any other metal band in history....they don't need any more. It's time to repair the reputation.

The bottom line is if you doubt Metallica your are not a metal head.

I completely agree with Disposable Hero. St. Anger is a gr8 album, i just dont see how you guys dont like it. each and every song has a meaning to it.for example, the unnamed feeling is about the tension james and lars. if u watch METALLICA : SOME KIND OF MONSTER, they tell u bout it. and regarding the new album, metallica played two of the new songs in the escape '06 tour. one at berlin and one at seoul. the berlin one is gr8, some ppl say its called, 'Death Is Not The End' the other one is ok..the coolest part is the solos are back and the new song at berlin has an awesome solo. i downloaded the song from LIVEMETALLICA.COM, so all u metallica luvers should check 'em out..it aint free though...

The new album should be great, I don't think they can re-create anything like Master of Puppets again, because nothing stays the same forever, and thats true for every band, well, Slayer stayed true to them selves with a$$ kicking metal they produce, but after the Black Album came out, Metallica they went mainstream, they've made enough cash now, now its time for them to create the kick ass, wicked music they made like Lightning and Puppets. And best of all, Hammett's recording solos again, so this next album should truly be a wicked album.

"Heavier and more melodic?" Hmmm, where have I heard that before? On one hand, this band is a rock band and has been for the past 15 years and that's not a bad thing if you like rock. On the other hand, the last time they were "basically left on their own" they produced 4 of the greatest metal albums known to man. I hate them for letting Rock so dominate them that they went from Puppets and Justice to St. Anger. But Metallica was too big of an influence on me as a kid to utterly write them off. I've blasted them before, and I still think Lars is just about the laziest drummer alive, but at least they went out and tried by getting Rubin. I'll give it a listen, but if this is just a super polished version of the last few albums, I will be completely done with them. And give us a fuking 10 minute instumental on this one to prove how "melodic" you are James.

Anyone who hasnt seen this interview with James should. "We just need to write a good record, and stop thinking so hard about it" is the crux of what it is about. He is also in essence telling on the bands failures with St Anger, citing the fact that they went in with too open a mind to every idea to the point where it became unfocused, which is where Rick Rubin is helping now. That element of honesty.

Id love to be able to agree with Disposable Heroes and Master of Puppets on what theyve said, but its simply not true. While I like St Anger for what it is and can see the potential in it, it wasnt up to a Metallica standard, better production would definitely have helped this album.

But check it out. . .to some it mightnt be anything new, but its worth a look.

Their next album should be the best thing theyve put out since Justice or black.
They sound like their going to put out a thrash album with heavy riffs and killer solos.
I've been a great fan of the band since a mate give me a listen to one and sad but true.
Load and ReLoad were great too, they experimented a little with their noise and lowered the guitars to put the heaviness up a noch. Saint Anger was half and half, you could like it because of its Raw unpolished sound.
but you would also dislike it because it hasnt got kirk hammett slicing his guitar in two, or Hetfields Battle cries sailing over the music, but thats been explained, since he has done a bit of excess to his vocals.
He sings in a low key because the key is easier to sing in, so he can preserve his voice when he gets it trained (or w/e they call it).
This new album is supposedly going to be tuned back up to the stylings of lightning,Master and justice(For all :p, hehe puns).
If they can recreate the noise they made back in the 80's-90's era, i will not complain.
i highly doubt ReAnger will come out and itll end them.
because they've been working on this, and yeah they seem to dislike Anger.
Rubin has had a legacy of making greats.
im sure he can return Metallica back to their hungry raw bloodlust that was the era of thrash

I for one am excited but I always am when a new Metallica album is on the verge of being finished. The band always talks it up a few months before releasing, but each albums production time has been also going up and up. I am, and probably always will be, a huge Metallica fan and they rank up alongside Sabbath and Zeppelin in making up my ultimate metal trio, but they haven't done much except a decent song here and there since their black album. But what is with the huge amount of time they spend in the studio, longer for each album? Seems like the long time spent isn't producing better songs just more intricate and extended ones.

All that being said I like that they are embracing who they are, it's still the same group of guys (Cliff R.I.P.) that produced Master, RtL, Justice so it's not like they are copying someone elses style or something. Just return to your roots, embrace your past and don't try to reinvent yourselves just cuz a band needs to try to do that. Listen to MoP every day, Throw in Kill Em All, RtL etc and get inspired by those songs.

And for god sakes Lars please use drums like you did on AJFA, not the tin cans you were hitting on St Anger!!!

Metallica has always been very limited, musically speaking. They have invented ways of making their songs seem full and well-rounded, even though they completely lack any real intricate or challenging musical composition. For a time, that was part of the charm - four guys doing the best that they can and trying to produce something listenable - one of the better garage metal bands. At this point there is no excuse for being so musically inept, they have had decades to practice and learn, but all they seem to have done is just discovered new ways of snowing their fans, pretending that they are progressing when actually they are becoming an insignificant force in the world of metal. Speed metal is one of the reasons Metallica was once desired. When they announced years ago that they were not going to feed that desire any longer, we all knew it was because Kirk Hammet was getting older, slower and making too many mistakes in concert, the pressure was just too much for one man to handle. Kirk was a shining star, but for one person, night after night, having to do so much, over and over became too challenging as well as boring. Why Metallica would not take on another lead guitarist, is a mystery to most fans. Most of the better metal bands do have two lead guitarists that can do awesome work as a duo. Instead, in Metallica's words, they chose to slow down, end the long blazing guitar solos and form songs that hand more content lyrically and melodically. They have done what they said that they were going to do, and most fans really don't care for Metallica's more recent work. What Metallica doesn't understand is that the music comes first for fans, then the lyrics, and we also don't really like Metallica doing any covers of any band, ever. At this time there are so many 'real' metal bands out there, and some are quite excellent. Metallica should take a look and a listen around and see where metal is really going. With so many usable examples of various styles of metal, there is no reason why Metallica can't appreciate what is new and incorporate those things into their music in the way that only Metallica can. For Metallica this time is really the golden years of a band that did well and will have to wrap things up in 5-10 years. I would suggest that Metallica cut their concert performances in half for the next five years and invest that time into really creating something in studio that will live on for decades after they disband. For the last five years most of their time should be dedicated to creating and recording and re-mastering their entire catalog. After Metallica has been gone for 10 years, have a worldwide reunion tour that spans two years, then let it be finished, forever.
