ETA summer 2011
What they’re saying:
Lars Ulrich told The Pulse Of Radio in summer 2010:
“There’s a bunch of balls in the air for 2011, but I think the main one is we really want to get back to writing again. We haven’t really written since, what, ’06, ’07, and we want to get back to kind of just being creative again. Right now we are going to just chill out and then probably start up again in, I’d say, March or April, and start probably putting the creative cap back on and start writing some songs.”
Thrash Hits verdict:
Lars is clearly enjoying having the balls in the air and as Metallica fans, we’re used to those balls being in the air for ages before a totally unpredictable album comes out. There will be trepidation and uncertainty but it will be a Metallica album. There are still some people out there who claim Reload as their favourite ‘Tallica album. Go figure.
Really can’t remember why we made a graphic of Metallica in space. Kirk looks so happy.
