Kirk Hammett Says Metallica Members Warned Him About The New Album
Kirk Hammett gave an interview to NME and talked about Metallica’s new album. Although the fans want to hear more about the new record, the band keeps secrets and asks the guitarist to play along.
Metallica is one of the most iconic groups that are still up and running since its formation in 1981. They are also known as one of the big four thrash metal bands, along with Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax. All the members have also established their names through the band. Apart from their music, Metallica members are in a close relationship with each other.
They have released ten studio albums so far; the last one, ‘Hardwired… to Self-Destruct,’ came out in 2016. It has been six years since the fans heard new songs from the band, and now they have plans to end this yearning. Throughout this break, they released the remastered version of one of the most iconic albums in the world, ‘Metallica’ or ‘The Black Album,’ and many musicians, including Miley Cyrus and Elton John, covered songs from this album.
The band is planning and working on another album, which possibly will be released this year. However, the group is keeping secrets from their fans. Usually, it’s regular for musicians to reveal at least some details about their new album, but Metallica is very tight about it. Recently, Kirk Hammett was asked to give some clue as to what their new album might be or sound like, but he revealed that Metallica warned him against it and refused to answer any questions about it no matter how much the interviewer would ask.
Here is what he said about the new album:
“I’m not supposed to talk about the new album. Everyone warns me, ‘Don’t talk about the new album!’ So you can ask me 20 questions, and it’ll just be me politely finding different ways of me saying, ‘I can’t talk about the new album!'”
If Metallica refuses to give information, this could indicate surprises for the fans, who want to hold the ultimate suspense. Their attitude about the new album only makes the fans wonder and want more, and hopefully, they will be satisfied with their upcoming release.
