METALLICA is currently back in the studio crafting the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic”. Asked about the album’s progress in a recent radio interview, Hammett replied: “I can’t really put any sort of markers on how far we are along. All I can tell you, man, is we’re working on it. And sometimes it goes quickly, sometimes it doesn’t. Most likely it will come out next year — in a perfect world, if we can keep to our schedule. And we’ll see. That’s all I can really say.”
