Metallica still heavier than thou

    Metallica says it’s bringing heavyback on the band’s upcoming album, calling it the best music it’s made in 15 years.  Kirk Hammett recently told Austrian website that there’s, "just a really spectacular range of songs. This time we’re not afraid to refer to our past music in order to create future music…I think with this album we’re definitely going a little more back into our roots.  He added there are "a lot of really, really fast songs, a whole lot of really heavy stuff. " Metallica’s relatively new (though certainly not "nü") kid on the block, bassist Robert Trujillo, has previously described the album as the best elements of Master of Puppets combined with the best from the black album. [GrimPuppy]
