Metallica fans, rejoice -- they're about to start recording a new album.
Guitarist Kirk Hammett tells Loudwire.com they'll be heading into the studio "in the next couple of months" to begin working on the first album for their own, as-yet-unnamed record label. But first they have to complete the 3D movie they just finished shooting in Vancouver. And when that project winds down they'll "meet up and start throwing ideas together" for the album.
Hammett says they're "dealing with the audio aspect" of the film before they look at the footage of the concert, which reportedly will be coupled with a storyline.
