Metallica's Kirk Hammett 'Ready To Go' On New Album


Metallica's Kirk Hammett says he has a "ton of material" for the band's next studio album and is "ready to go" on a new record.

Hammett said in an interview with Mixdown that he was "uncomfortable" with the long wait fans had to endure between Metallica's previous albums.

It has been three years since the heavy metal band released their last album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.

"When I was 13 or 14 years old, bands put out albums every year. Seriously, KISS put out an album every eight months - none of this eight years between albums," Hammett said.

"None of us are very comfortable with the fact it's been so long, because that's a long time. We're hoping to avoid that this time around," he added. "Maybe we can get a bit more focus and go into the studio a bit sooner."
