back to the Studio?
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has told Launch Radio Networks that the band's pre-show ritual every night on their current tour is actually helping them come up with ideas for the next METALLICA album. "You know when you open with songs like 'Blackened' and 'Fight Fire...' and so on, you gotta kind of have your chops together by the time you get up on stage," he said. "So by the time we get up on stage, we're actually about twenty, thirty minutes in playing, 'cause we get together in this jam room we have. And we have a guy who records those jams. So there's some pretty crazy stuff that comes up every night, and I definitely look forward to shifting through some of that stuff when we get back to the studio in January."
Lars says!
"Some people were overwhelmed by it," Ulrich said about the follow-up to 1997's "Re-load". "I can see now that for people who knew METALLICA through the simpler stuff, 'St. Anger' can be a pretty challenging record. But I'm proud of it, and proud that we stuck with it and didn't pussy out. A couple times in the past when we set out to make some aggressive stuff, we kind of watered it down. I'm glad we didn't do that. " '... And Justice for All' is one of the cornerstones of the band's career. But next to it, 'St. Anger' sounds like 'Dark Side of the Moon'. It'll be interesting to see what people think of the record five or 10 years from now. There are people who think it's just a little ahead of its time."
Burton Memorial
Members of the Swedish METALLICA forum have joined forces in launching a project that they hope will result in a stone being erected in the memory of former bass player of METALLICA, Cliff Burton, who died in a bus accident just outside Ljungby, Sweden in 1986. "Everyone that we have spoken to [is] positive to this project and wants to support us as much as they can," reads a post on the project's web site. "For example Aftonbladet (the leading newspaper in Sweden). "After some research that we have done we've heard that this project has been 'up on the carpet' before, but for some reason have not come to a conclusion.
