Metallica music and film news

by Otto Man

Metallica’s James Hetfield says in a new interview with Billboard that the band has enough material to start an album right now, but the biggest issue is finding time in their schedule to focus on it. The frontman explains, “I want it done yesterday and [Orion Music + More] and this movie is keeping us pretty busy at this point and it’s taking a lot of time and effort.” Hetfield added the group has begun the early stages of putting their next record together, but cautions, “We’ve gone through maybe one-tenth of the material that’s on our riffs CDs. We’ve got enough for an album, we just haven’t had enough time to really focus on it and dial in and start whittling it into these masterpieces hopefully.” More and more
