Metallica frontman James Hetfield says he now regards 2003's St. Anger as "more of a statement than Metallica music that [the band enjoys] playing live," adding, "It was more of a purge, just getting that shit out of me, as a catalyst for the next chapter of Metallica." So we can assume the making of the group's forthcoming LP is totally different? Definitely. "With St. Anger, it became so open-minded that it became unfocused. This time around, there's a lot of 'Sorry, it's not good enough.' We're aiming for excellence." Drummer Lars Ulrich expressed similar sentiments recently when discussing the new record's sound. The album is expected to drop early next year.
