Kirk Hammett Talks New Metallica Riffs

The guitarist told Cosmo Music that he’s worked very hard on accumulating riffs since 2016’s Hardwired…to Self Destruct — and made sure he has them safely stored so he doesn’t lose them like he did five years ago when he lost his iPhone. Hammett said, “It took me a long time to recover from that. And I got it into my head I had to produce twice as much — basically, I overcompensated…I have a lot of material — really kick-ass, great material — that I just can’t wait to show the other guys and turn into some music, record, get the album out and have more kick-ass metal.”
