New Metallica Album (Sort of...)

Quote:
A few months ago our own Kirk Hammett hinted at a new Metallica project that's "not really 100 percent a Metallica record." While Kirk may have jumped the gun a little (and has since been properly punished with a series of push-ups!), we are more than proud to announce that we have just completed recording a full length album that is a collaboration with none other than the legendary Lou Reed.

I don't really know what to expect from this.

Well, I honestly expected this to be a covers album, so this is a surprise.

Having heard their performance with Reed at the RARHOF anniversary, I'm expecting this to suck big time. That performance was fucking awful, and not because of Metallica...

More details from Pitchfork:

Yesterday, we reported the earthshakingly weird news that Metallica and Lou Reed had teamed up to record an album together. Rolling Stone has a bit more info on the surprising collaboration. The magazine sat both entities down for an interview together, and writer David Fricke got to hear the mostly-finished product. Fricke describes the effort as a combination between Reed's Berlin and Metallica's Master of Puppets-- a description that somehow gives us less of an idea how this thing might sound.

Reed wrote the songs for the album, with Metallica making what Fricke calls "significant arrangement contributions." Metallica drummer Lars Urich claims that the record is "90% finished" and that they have no plans for release at the moment, especially since neither Reed nor Metallica have record deals right now.

Apparently, Metallica and Reed had originally planned to record an album of covers of lesser-known Reed songs. But Reed brought a different idea to them: An album of songs that he wrote for the play Lulu, an adaptation of stories from the German author Frank Wedekind that's currently running in Berlin.

Talking to Rolling Stone, Metallica's James Hetfield says, ""Lars and I listened to the stuff, and it was like, 'Wow, this is very different.' It was scary at first, because the music was so open. But then I thought, 'This could go anywhere.'" Song titles include "Pumping Blood" and "Mistress Dread".

For his part, Reed says, "A marriage made in heaven. I knew it from the first day we played together: 'Oh, man, this is perfection, right in front of me'... They're bringing Metallica, with all that power. And because they're pretty sophisticated, wherever I go, they're still with me."

I don't believe anyone who says Metallica's new stuff sounds anything like their classic material. It's simply not possible. Even still, I'm interested to hear this.
