Last night (March 16) in Bogota, Colombia, Metallica debuted 'The Lords of Summer,' a new song from the thrash legends. Now that we've heard the song, fans are beginning to ponder how 'The Lords of Summer' will fit into Metallica's next album. Now, drummer Lars Ulrich explains how the new song represents Metallica's current creative mindset.
As promised, Metallica debuted a brand-new song 'The Lords of Summer' during their 2014 tour kickoff in Bogota, Colombia. The metal legends rocked the tune in the midst of their set at their concert on Sunday night (March 16).
Metallica have a busy summer planned, as they've lined up a number of shows and plan to work on material for a new album. Last year, they were asked by their hometown San Francisco Giants baseball team to participate in Metallica Night, and it was such a success they are doing it again.
Kirk Hammett may play guitar for metal's most successful band, but the Metallica shredder remains humble to this day. In a new interview with Hammett, the guitarist puts Metallica's success into perspective while claiming that the titans are "just a little thrash band from San Francisco."
That rumble you just felt came from Canada as organizers of the Heavy Montreal Festival have unveiled a lineup worthy of its name. When you start with Metallica, Slayer, Lamb of God and Anthrax, you know you've got a rocking music weekend on tap.
Many artists have embraced social media as a way to reach out to their fans, but it's safe to say that there are certain musicians who take to it more than others. One of those who has rejected social media is Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
Even though Metallica haven't released a new studio album since 2008's 'Death Magnetic,' they've kept plenty busy. Between global touring (they played all 7 continents including Antarctica in 2013) and making the 3D movie 'Through the Never,' they have remained in the spotlight. The question on everybody's mind is when that elusive next album will be recorded.
