Earlier this month James Hetfield said that Metallica was already recording new songs, and Papa Het wasn’t lying! In a new interview with HeavyMetalAbout.com, Kirk Hammett confirmed that statement with one of his own. When asked how it feels to be able to record at their own pace, Kirk answered: “Let me just say that I’m grateful that we’re at a point where we can put out an album at our own pace, because there’s just so much other stuff that takes up Metallica time that’s maybe not as equally as important, but just as relevant. So, the answer to your question is yeah, it’s great being able to work at your own pace, and still be able to be a father and be a husband, and everything else that comes in the wake of that. We have songs, and we are recording them, so that’s a good sign.”
Did you ready that correctly? “We have songs, and we are recording them!” YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Of course there is still no release date, or any idea when the new material will come our way, but if they are recording the tunes, it means that we are closer than ever to hearing new Metallica music! Consider me STOKED!Tags: "Kirk Hammett" Metallica
