Could the next Metallica album be their best yet? According to guitarist Kirk Hammett, it just might be! Hammett said in a recent interview with Giants postgame live analyst George Kontos that he doesn't feel the band has peaked yet, and that they're collectively still very interested in making new music.
"Man, it's crazy when I think about four decades. 'Cause I swear to God, it seems like just yesterday that we were on a tour bus somewhere in the middle of America, just trying to keep up with everything. And nowadays it's just… Forty years passed so quickly. It's amazing.
"What's truly amazing now is the fact that I still feel like we haven't really peaked, we're still real hungry, we still wanna make music, we still care about music, we still care about each other. I don't see any signs of us slowing down, man, 'cause we have stuff that we wanna do."
