KIRK HAMMETT Says That ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’ Has The Best Drum Sound METALLICA’s Had In 10 Years

In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett said that he feels that the band’s latest album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” has the best drum sound that the band had in the last 10 years.

He says:

“I personally think it’s a lot easier to listen to than [2008’s] ‘Death Magnetic.’ It’s kind of obvious, but I really feel like this is the best drum sound we’ve had in the last 10 years. I’m happy about that whole aspect of it.

“[Improvising the solos] was a chance I’m glad I took. The results are different and unique to anything I’ve done in the past. I strive to do things like that.

“I know I can go to bed at night knowing I worked my hardest. That in itself makes it somewhat bulletproof in my mind, knowing that we did the best we possibly could do.”

METALLICA‘s latest album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”, was certified platinum on April 12 by the RIAA(Recording Association Of America), meaning every one of their studio albums has reached or surpassed this milestone.
