Rolling Stone: Metallica's Lars Ulrich on How 'Kill 'Em All' Influenced New Album
Lars Ulrich's head is spinning. Just hours before our conversation, the drummer debuted a thrashy new Metallica rager, the breakneck-paced "Hardwired," in a Facebook Live broadcast and announced that the group would be putting out a new LP, Hardwired … to Self-Destruct, this fall. The record, which contains 12 new songs representing over 80 minutes of music over two discs, will be the first Metallica album since 2008's Death Magnetic and first full-length since their 2011 collaboration with Lou Reed, Lulu. But there's a catch: The album at this moment is still a work in progress.
