Metallica are back after eight years.
And according to some, their new album ‘Hardwired’ was worth the wait: hardcore fans will be delighted to hear it has been described as two CDs, 12 tracks and 80 minutes of in-your-face, punch-to-the-guts, dense, harsh, shouty rage with absolutely no let-up.
The iconic heavy metal band treated their London fans to a special midnight meet and greet ahead of the launch of the album, which is expected to follow in the footsteps of their 2008 Double Platinum ‘Death Magnetic’.
“It feels great. It feels like we’ve waited too long – we tortured everyone else including ourselves (laughs) and it feels good to give birth to a new thing and have people listening to it,” says band member James Hetfield.
