According to Bild, Germany’s top-selling daily newspaper, METALLICA‘s new album could arrive on October 14. This release date, however, has not been confirmed by Universal, the conglomerate that currently distributes the band’s music overseas.
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich recently spoke to Citizens Of Humanity magazine about the musical direction of the group’s long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic”. He said: “It definitely sounds like METALLICA. It’s probably a little less frenetic than the last record.

This time around it’s a little bit of a different thing.”
METALLICA worked on the new disc on and off over the past few years, in between other projects that included a series of short tours, a film, the restoration of some of their early albums and other projects.
