Metallica will reportedly begin working on its next full-length album within a few months. It is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2014. Kirk Hammet said, "We're going to meet up and start throwing ideas together. That should be really, really interesting. I'm really looking forward to that. What's not going to be so fun is going through all the musical ideas that we have. I'm not really good at editing myself because I think it's all good. To be more thorough on that, though, I foresee us starting to get together fairly soon, like in the next couple of months. We'll start hammering away on it."
