Metallica has released a behind the scenes video from the making of their forthcoming album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, due on November 18th from Blackened Records. You can watch the nine-minute video from the writing and recording sessions for the new album, at this link or below:

Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is the long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s Death Magnetic, and is a double album containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.

Drummer Lars Ulrich told Fox 9 that the band played Hardwired.. “all in the same room” for the first time ob Monday, August 15 in preparation for the Minneapolis concert on 8/20. “This is as fresh off the assembly line as rock and roll gets.” he remarked.

Referring to the track ‘Hardwired’ he continued: “That’s actually the last song we wrote for the record. We started this album by throwing different ideas around. The shape of it, as a collection of songs, didn’t come into focus until we were deep into it. At that point, the songs were getting tighter, shorter and leaner.”

He continued: “A couple of months ago, we were sitting there taking stock of the record and thought maybe we should write one more fast, little crazy song, and that became ‘Hardwired’. It just kind of happened. I think James (Hetfield) and I wrote and recorded it in less than a week, which, for us, is basically a nanosecond.”

 

Hardwired…To Self-Destruct was produced by Greg Fidelman with Hetfield and Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio and is still putting the finishing touches on the LP.
