It’s been a long time since ‘Death Magnetic’ (2008) and the drummer of Metallica, Lars Ulrich, gave a lot of joy to the fans stating that a new album is extremely possible. What is certain is that the producer will be Greg Fidelman again, as the band has been satisfied working with him. Hold your horses though, because although Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett have talked – in different interviews- about new songs the band is working on, there was no definite promise of release within 2016. However, Lars stated that the album will be ready during summer. Let’s hope that, after so long a wait, Metallica’s new album will see the light of day before the end of 2016.
