Metallica hopes to release new album in 2016

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett recently sat down with Rich Gaenzler of the 103.3 The Edge WEDG-FM for an interview (you can listen to the audio here. Speaking of the band's next album, Hammett said it will "most likely" be out in 2016:
"Well, you know, we're moving forward. We're hoping that the album will be released next year. It's pretty much more along the same lines as 'Death Magnetic' — kind of like that direction. And, you know, we'll see. We're into it. I don't wanna say that we're a third into it, or two-thirds into it, or an eighth into it, 'cause anything could happen that'll just change that number. But, eventually, you will see a new Metallica album, and it will most likely be in 2016, and at the very worst, at the beginning of 2017."

I hope they don't... Unless they add two-three strings and throw some bareknuckle pickups in those guitars... Axe-fx would be nice (misha's patch is available online hint hint) Ray DJENT Clark

And another thing if they don't go DJENT I will make sure to personally harass this band ok YouTube and Facebook while my (amazing) DJENT mixes are exporting. Yes I am a producer... If any DJENT acts would like to record with me I own a studio called "Auras Sound" I talked with Arron Marshall of intervals and they might do a single with me Ray DJENT Clark

GIMME DABAJABAZA And by that, I mean don't give me a new Metallica album.

As Metallica goes...just end it. Lars, be gone, go away, whatever. Let James stay home, Kirk can go do his horror thing and Trujillo go on and make good music.

I don't know about you guys but my dad is pretty hyped about this.

anonymous 11/6/2015 7:52:25 PM

"It's along the same lines of that last album that nobody fcking liked...honestly I don't know why we are wasting our time. Oh, that's right, because you dumbfck die-hards will buy anything we do. Speaking of which, a limited edition loaf I pinched this morning will be for sale on our website later today. For an extra $250, I will sign it."
