Metallica’s new album – everything we know so far about the band’s 11th
Metallica is an American heavy metal band. Metallica’s current lineup comprises founding members and primary songwriters Hetfield and Ulrich, longtime lead guitarist Kirk Hammett , and bassist Robert Trujillo. Guitarist Dave Mustaine who went on to form Megadeth after being fired from the band and bassists Ron McGovney , Cliff Burton who died in a bus accident in Sweden in and Jason Newsted are former members of the band.
Metallica earned a growing fan base in the underground music community and won critical acclaim with its first five albums. Its eponymous fifth album, Metallica , the band’s first to root predominantly in heavy metal, appealed to a more mainstream audience, achieving substantial commercial success and selling over 16 million copies in the United States to date, making it the best-selling album of the SoundScan era.
After experimenting with different genres and directions in subsequent releases, the band returned to its thrash metal roots with the release of its ninth album, Death Magnetic , which drew similar praise to that of the band’s earlier albums.

Released in , at an incredible time of flux and creativity in the rock world, Rust in Peace still stands as one the greatest metal albums ever made. He details the pains of trying to handle the ensuing success, and ultimately the pressure of fame and fortune that caused the band to finally break-up. He also takes a hard look at the music landscape of the late eighties-early nineties. Little did Mustaine know that the birth pangs of the record were nothing compared to the oncoming pain and torment that would surround it.
Alcohol, drugs, sex, money, power, property, prestige, the lies the band was told by the industry – and the lies they told each other – were just beginning, and much like rust in real life, these factors would ultimately eat away at the band’s bond until only the music survived. Rust in Peace is a true story of groundbreaking anti-pop that was moving toward the mainstream or the mainstream that was moving toward the band , at a time of great cultural change, power, ego, drugs, and other vices that went hand-in-hand with Rock N’ Roll.

Do you still believe in the institution of marriage? Lars Ulrich pauses, looks taken aback and after one beat too long replies: “Um…yes, yes I do. I’ve lived a lot. A third marriage… you save the best for last. As first dates go I’m really knocking this out of the park early. Sitting at an outdoor table at Robert DeNiro’s swank Tribeca eatery with the Danish drummer—arguably Metallica’s most recognizable and outspoken member—I can feel the red start to rise in my cheeks.
Nothing left to do but blunder on: “Do you consider yourself a romantic? If hard pressed, yes. I haven’t had a lot of these conversations… I guess I would consider myself a romantic. Ah yes. Metallica have a new record out, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct , their first LP in eight years, and their tenth album overall. If you want to know about the ins and outs of that record then read our metal editor, Kim Kelly’s interview with Lars. Riffing on erm, riffs, is not what Noisey first dates are made of.
My plan, as ever, is to be nosey!
