The reigning kings of the Big Four, METALLICA, are currently locked up at their headquarters recording a brand NEW album. Recently, 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."
Apparently a NEW METALLICA song called "Darkness" has surfaced over the Internet, while we can't confirm if this song is part of their upcoming album, we can confirm that the song kicks ass! Crank it now before it gets taken down!
UPDATE: This is an EVILE song! We will have to wait patiently for NEW METALLICA tunes!
