LARS ULRICH Talks New Metallica Album And 3D Movie

In a recent interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich talked about the band's upcoming 3D movie which many fans have been highly anticipating, he also talked about the band's new album which is currently in the making and apparently "picks up where Death Magnetic left off", but says he would be surprised if the record came out in 2013, as they're focused on releasing the 3D movie at the moment.

Lars also stated that the 1976 Led Zeppelin concert film ‘The Song Remains the Same’ has been a major influence for Metallica’s 3D movie, especially when it comes to its more avant-garde qualities. “There are four members in Led Zeppelin, four members in Metallica, it’s a full-length movie, and there’s a lot in this film that does not take place onstage,” begins Ulrich. “The major difference is that the stuff that takes place offstage in the Metallica movie does not feature any members of Metallica. It’s two separate worlds – a Metallica show and a story that unfolds in a parallel universe – and at some point they intertwine.”

The live footage featured in Metallica’s upcoming 3D film was recorded in Vancouver, Canada during the band’s August 2012 performance. The film is expected for a Summer 2013 release.
