Metallica's bassist Robert Trujillo revealed in a recent interview (you can read it at this location) that the band is already writing material for a new album and that the recording process will probably be done throughout next year.

He said: "We've been busy writing and recording. We've got a couple of new songs we have been working on the past couple of weeks. The writing process for the new Metallica album has begun. We've been in the studio with Rick Rubin, working on a couple of things, and we're going to be recording during the most of next year. We've got a lot of work ahead of us. But the great thing is that we have sort of already jumped off the launch pad and we're swimming. It's happening. It's reality. It's a lot of fun, there are a lot of ideas, and we're really excited about the new record. For me, personally, Death Magnetic was the launch pad for the next record. This is the beginning of something very, very cool."



In other news, Metallica's performance at the Indian Formula 1 motor racing Grand Prix show on October 28th in Gurgaon (a suburb of Delhi) was cancelled due to an "unruly" section of the crowd climbing over safety barriers and damaging the stage set.

The band made the following statement: "We arrived in Delhi on Friday very excited and ready to play our first show ever in India at the F1 Rocks concert. However, immediately at the end of our afternoon press conference at a hotel near the venue, we were notified that there was a serious question as to whether the show could proceed with regard to the safety of the concert audience. And our first and foremost concern is always for the safety of you, the fans."

Great, I'm in the need for a "real" new Metallica album.
Angelic Storm - 01.11.2011 at 11:38  
Hopefully this can build on "Death Magnetic", which was good, but still a way off their classic 80's material. Then I can just pretend that "Lulu" was just a bad dream...

Hmmm.. they must have had a severe lapse of conscience while recording Lulu.

I don't care who made it, it still sucks huge amounts of camel balls. People like you are like "well because they said it wasn't a true Metallica record, it doesn't suck". If an album suck, it sucks.

of course it's not a 100% Metallica record, but the way both the band loads of people are going on about it it's as if Metallica only played some music for it and nothing to do with the creative process at all.

I have criticsed Metallica for being involved in the project, both creatively and as musicians. I can't speak for anyone else, but my view (no pun intended!) that the album isn't a proper Metallica album doesn't exempt them from criticsm of being part of it's creative process. I merely don't treat the album as a proper Metallica album, because it isn't one. The next album is the follow up to "Death Magnetic", not "Lulu". Besides, some people have been criticising it, as if it was the bona fide follow up to "Death Magnetic", which is also a misguided view.
Kenos - 01.11.2011 at 13:51  
Ahh, goddammit, people keep repeating that "Lulu" is not a Metallica album and blablabla, but seriously, who cares? Would've been the same pile of horseshit if there weren't two fuckin big names stuck on its stupid cover, with the only difference that no one would've given a fuck about it without all the hype. Music is music, regardless of whether who writes/plays it is Donald Duck or Teletubbies.
R'Vannith - 01.11.2011 at 13:57  
Regardless of to what extent Metallica were involved in that 'album', it remains a fact that it is now an inseparable blotch on their already tarnished career.
What I will never understand is why they keep on applying salt to the wound.
Lit. - 01.11.2011 at 13:59  
The least they could do is at least fill us in on what its going to sound like.
Iron Nostarion - 01.11.2011 at 14:45  
What a shame, this was the band that wouldn't play on MTV and fucked up everything mainstream and still sold records, now selling themselves to make fucked up rhymes with a man of a garbageous voice and even disappointing people who had faith in their return to something SIMILAR TO THEIR ORIGINAL STYLE after they've been fucked up with disappointments. The Bay Area is fucking ashamed now. Thrash should be. But as with them, I will revert to not caring at all.

I don't fucking care about the next album. Too much disappointments from the band on its own, from the Big 4 and from any big band in general this year. I'm fucking depressed about anything a "big band" makes. We've got Big 4 shit all 'round this year, Morbid Angel shit, Amon Amarth shit, Children of Bodom shit, etc.
Unhealer - 01.11.2011 at 14:54  
I have high hopes for this one. DM was pretty awesome and they may come up with some fresh stuff after Lulu.

Let's see...
Scuzzy McDouche - 01.11.2011 at 14:59  
I have high hopes for this new album too. Metallica really needs to come forth and kick some serious ass to make up for the massive piece of shit that was LULU.

THAT's where Metallica and Lou Reed went wrong... they should have called the album "Lala" and made a concept album about the Teletubbies instead... Then everyone would be hailing it as total greatness!
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 01.11.2011 at 17:06  
I haven't listened to Lulu yet, but the feeling I'm getting is something to over this news is that there recovering from a "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas esque-trip" that was Lulu.

Still like with the last time I bothered to talk in a Metallica news article, no expectations, no anticipation. Only the wish that it's at least slightly higher then the quality in Death Magnetic.

My good friend, you have hurted my feelings. I have never said that this album doesn't suck. It sucks and this album is one of the biggest turds in the history of music. I'm only saying that people shouldn't approach this album as if it's the successor to Death Magnetic,what it isn't. Most of the material was made by Lou Reed and Metallica just put their own spice on this steaming pile of shit. So apologize.

Pff, it doesn't matter what it's following up or what it's preceding, it's one of the worst-ever releases in music history. Regardless of Metallica, regardless of Lou Reed, regardless of their collaborative histories and potential future success - all that matters is Lulu is complete and utter garbage.

Perhaps it would be time for you to stop caring for big names and start listening to less known bands.
Imo, when it comes to metal, the best stuff almost always comes from less known bands and not from big names.

Anyway, the situation you describe will only get worse because bands with big names are aging.

I know. Thus I'm following this advice you're giving me, needless to hear it. It's just that I can't buy much stuff (I live in the middle of nowhere) and can't find download sites that offer more underground stuff. :/

great hopes for the next album

I don't think people are bitching about the band not writing the same stuff they were writing 25 years ago, I think people are merely commenting on the quality of the content, rather than what the content actually is. They don't write good music anymore. They used to. Plain and simple. Get over the fact that most people with taste can actually recognize what this band can sound like at their full potential.

I don't understand people bitching and complaining at this point because they haven't really done anything good in like 23-24 years. Maybe aside from Garage Inc...Gotta admit I liked that one.

Back to the news; Didn't Rick Rubin kind of fuck up production do absolutely nothing on the last album? I'm kind of confused as to why they're bringing him in again, as I think they even commented on his total lack of work on the album. You'd think with the type of pay Mr.Rubin probably requires they wouldn't risk him doing sweet fuck all again.

Yep, he did. I have to say, I was shocked when I saw that he'd be producing the next album. Apparently he spent very little time in the studio for the recording of the last album, and when he was there, he hardly did anything. Although Greg Fidelman took most of the blame for how "Death Magnetic" sounded, as producer, Rick Rubin has to carry the can for it as well. I liked the last album, but the production on it was awful. I'm definitely unhappy they've decided to go for Rick Rubin again, after the production was a total mess the last time around. Im sure I recall hearing that Rick isn't much interested in producing metal anymore, which if true, would explain why he was hardly involved in the last album's production... still, at least it isn't Bob Rock I guess... lol

As for the above conversation, I will listen to the next album with totally unbiased ears, and "Lulu" isn't going to affect how I view it one iota. It'll be judged 100% on it's own merits.
Valentin B - 04.11.2011 at 10:11  
I'll be honest here: DM was a pleasant surprise to me, I hope Lulu was just a momentary episode of musical explosive diarrhea, and that the next album would be inspired by their thrash-influenced albums. Pretty much anything (including St. Anger part two) would be better than Lulu.

I guess that's the thing... most people will let "Lulu" influence how they see the next album, and anything aside from a "Lulu Pt.2" will be seen as amazing compared to it. I'll be judging the album totally on it's own merits though... which is probably also why I never "disown" bands like some people do.
