Lars Ulrich "likes to dick about on a trombone", report Metal Hammer

Metallica will be heading into the studio this September to record a follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic!, via Metal Hammer. The record would be their eleventh studio album, if you include Lulu, the 2011 collaboration with Lou Reed.

According to Metal Hammer, Lars Ulrich told reporters on Tuesday: “Every time James Hetfield picks up a guitar, there are some brilliant riffs that come out of it, and I try to make sure that they are all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums in behind them,” said the drummer, who as we found out yesterday, also like to dick about on a trombone.

“So there are, obviously, tons of ideas sitting around waiting to be had at in terms of turning ideas of James’ into songs. Pretty much when we’re done with the [3D] movie [project] and with Outside Lands, which should all be wrapped up by early September, we’re gonna basically just concentrate on new music and try to get another Metallica record [done].”

Yesterday, the magazine posted this video of Lars Ulrich displaying his hithero unknown brass skills.
