We've counted down Metallica's best songs, highlighted Kirk Hammett's best guitar solos and have listed the late Cliff Burton's most memorable bass lines. But now it's time to give the drummer his due -- that's right, we're
Metallica just keep rocking along, year after year, becoming one of metal's most enduring acts. But with that longevity comes the possibility of complacency, which is something that drummer Lars Ulrich says he doesn't think will ever happen.
Worry not, Metallica fans, for your thrash heroes have officially begun the writing process for a new album. As the follow-up to the band's 2008 album, 'Death Magnetic,' the as-yet-untitled album has so far been described by drummer Lars Ulrich as "heavy," "energetic" and "fast."
Metallica today (Dec. 6) announced that all nine of their studio albums are now available on the streaming service Spotify. In addition, there will also be some live material, singles, remixes and collaborations.
While Metallica may be one of the most successful rock bands of the modern era, drummer Lars Ulrich would rather hang out and get to know the newer bands coming up around them rather than shower them with unsolicited advice.
Although the news broke yesterday that Metallica were set to begin work in earnest on a new album in September, drummer Lars Ulrich doesn't want fans to get too anxious about the upcoming release. The Metallica percussionist is "realistically" expecting the band's 10th album to hit stores in early 2014.
After the passing of legendary Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord yesterday (July 16), there has been an incredible outpouring from both fans and some of rock most iconic musicians. Most recently, Metallica's Lars Ulrich took some time to write an earnest, in-depth tribute about the influence he took from both Deep Purple and Jon Lord.
Fans that made it out to Metallica’s inaugural Orion Festival were served up two nights of meaty Metallica headlining sets. Day one featured their 1984 disc ‘Ride the Lightning’ in its entirety followed by their self-titled 1991 release, more commonly referred to as the Black Album, on day two.
As Metallica have continued to announce additional attractions to their Orion Music + More Festival, the two-day event has become increasingly personal for the band. Although many will attend the festivities for the music, they'll also be able to check out James Hetfield's car show, Kirk Hammett's horror museum, and now, Lars Ulrich's mini film festival.
