Metallica‘s new record is called Hardwired….to Self Destruct. The album is due out on November 18th.
The band sat down for a townhall type interview on SiriusXM where fans got to ask some questions. One fan asked about the future of music and here are some of the bands Metallica said are rocking it.
Lars had a couple picks including Vancouver’s Black Mountain. Wait, didn’t another HUGE rock star shoutout Black Mountain?
Lars also loved the UK’s Savages. They are a great band. He said, “Talk about pissed off. They’re insane. They’re this punky, so much energy, super dark, little Siouxsie and the Banshee, dark, weird Euro-punk. The singer just gets out there and screams. If you get a chance to check them out, they’re a little different.”
Kirk Hammett said he enjoyed a band called Ho99o9 (pronounced Horror). “I saw a video for a band a couple of days ago that really impressed me.”
Metallica’s new single is called “Moth Into Flame.”
