METALLICA are in no rush to release the follow up to 2008's 'Death Magnetic'. As a matter of fact, the legions of 'Tallica fans worldwide won't see a NEW record before 2014. During an interview with Metal Hammer's What's On, Rob Trujillo offered a few snippets of what we can all expect.
“As clichéd as it sounds. It’s the music — or maybe just music in general [that keeps us going]. When we’re back home and we strap on the guitars, it just works. At the moment, we’re in the middle of writing a NEW album and, if anything, the problem is that we write too many riffs. That proves that there is a lot of music still in us.
What’s On: How’s the new album coming along?
Trujillo: Well, we can’t really say much, because it’s still being written, but we’ve been listening to our last album, 'Death Magnetic', a lot, which is inspiring the arrangements we are currently writing. There is a certain quality to that album that we are really proud of and we want to maintain a certain standard. Is the NEW album going to sound like “Death Magnetic”? Probably not, but there will still be those signature Metallica grooves and thrash elements.
