As previously reported, Rolling Stone magazine sat down with all the four members of METALLICA — guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo — at the bands headquarters in San Rafael, California.

When asked about how far along is the band with the writing of the NEW album, James Hetfield said: "I only have 846 riffs. In iTunes, you can see how many things you've got. And that does not include the soundchecks, the stuff we goof around with here. You plug in an amp. Suddenly it makes you feel good — you come up with a riff. 'Dude, did you get that?' You can't get away from being recorded here." More information on METALLICA's NEW album HERE!
