Metallica 'Close To Being Done' Creating New Album Songs

(hennemusic) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich says the band have written close to 20 songs for the follow-up to 2008's "Death Magenetic" and he says the "creative elements are getting close to being done". Ulrich gave Rolling Stone an update on the progress of the songwriting for the new album, "We are f***ing in it. We've got lots of songs, and we're honing them and tweaking them. It's pretty close." He then defined what he meant by close. "The creative elements are getting close to being done," the drummer says. "Just remember, this is still 'Metallica time.' When I say we're close to being done, it means the next month or so. There's a lot of stuff going on as life continues with family and personal events.... But we are certainly down there [writing] pretty much every day." While the band has yet to choose a producer for the project, Ulrich reveals the group are likely to debut some of the new material during their 2015 live shows.

Metallica Releasing Earliest Recordings For RSD

(Classic Rock) Metallica has confirmed special releases for this year's Record Store Day. The annual event takes place on April 18 and aims to offer additional reasons to visit independent retail outlets on the day. Metallica will launch a reissues series with an exact replica of demo cassette tape No Life 'Til Leather, recorded in July 1982 and featuring frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich along with future Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine and bassist Ron McGovney. It carries six tracks including Hit The Lights, Seek & Destroy, Metal Militia and Phantom Lord. Ulrich tells Rolling Stone: "It's time for us to put out some next-level reissues and do the song and dance of the catalogue that everyone else has done. Instead of starting with Kill 'Em All in 1983, we figured we'd go back another two years to when the band was formed." The RSD special will be followed by an expanded edition in the summer.

Led Zeppelin Event Coming To Movie Theaters

(hennemusic) A compilation of live Led Zeppelin performances will be screened in US theaters on March 30th as the legendary band continued their extensive reissues series with last week's expanded reissue of their 1975 release, "Physical Graffiti." The second evening in the Fathom Events Classic Music Series - the first featured the premiere of "Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014" last week - will deliver footage of Led Zeppelin live performances from two previously released sources: 1976's "The Song Remains The Same" concert film and the 2003 "Led Zeppelin" DVD. Fathom Events have pulled clips of the band at London's Royal Albert Hall in January 1970, their July 1973 shows at New York's Madison Square Garden, their five-night run at London's Earl's Court in May 1975, and their two performances at England's Knebworth Festival in August 1979.

Aerosmith Members Wants To Play Entire Classic Album Live

(Gibson) At least one member of Aerosmith would relish the prospect of performing one of the band's classic albums in its entirety at a concert as a special treat to fans. "I've wanted to do that for a long time," says Brad Whitford, speaking recently to Gibson.com. "We attempted to do it once, but it didn't work out-the band didn't feel strongly enough about the way the audience was responding to it. But I think that idea might be worthy of a special treatment, maybe in smaller theaters around the country." Whitford went on to suggest the band could perform 1975's Toys in the Attic and 1976's Rocks back to back, playing the songs in the same sequence as they appear on the albums. "We could also bring in some of our favorite friends and artists to join us-someone like Slash, for instance," he added. "That would really be fun."
