Nå kan man jo synse hva man vil om Metallica og de senere skivene deres, men skal vi tro dette intervjuet fra bbc høres det ganske så lovende ut.
Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum has whetted the appetite of Metallica fans by giving a glowing report of the bands new album.
Speaking to Rolling Stone Sorum revealed that he’d been played demos for the album by Lars Ulrich.
He said: “Lars is a good friend of mine. He played me the demos from San Francisco, and I turned and looked at him and I said, ‘Master that shit and put it out.’ It’s ridiculous.
“The demos were sick. Eight-minute songs, all these tempo changes, crazy fast. It’s like, ‘Dude, don’t get slower when you get older, but don’t get faster!? How are you gonna play this live?’”
“And then me and Lars were out partying all night,(Jada jada.. red.anm.) and he had to go in the studio the next day and do this stupid like nine or ten minute song, and I was laughing at him — because he played me the demo of it, and it was [sings really fast drum part], so fast.
“I called him, and said, ‘Dude, how are you feeling?’ He was like, ‘Dude, I’m hurting.’ They’re cutting everything to tape, no fuckin’ Pro Tools — live, no clicks. Bitchin’. I dig it. I’m really excited for them.”
Something to be excited about then?
