Louder Sound: Lars Ulrich interview: lockdown, missing live music, and the future of Metallica
This year, like every other band Metallica have been offthe road. Lars Ulrich tells Classic Rock that in all that downtime he’s kept up his chops by playing along to their last studio record, Hardwired… To Self Destruct. “Another record I’ve played along to is Rage Against The Machine, that first album [’92],” he says.“That has been the soundtrack to this pandemic for me. I’m just blasting those songs, and they sound more relevant and more contemporary than they ever have."
