METALLICA's Lars Ulrich Doesn't Find Much Inspiration In Music Anymore

He's also a fan of The Sword and Kvelertak.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich seems like the type of dude that's just doing whatever makes him happiest, and doesn't care too much about what other people think. Which is why it's a little unsurprising that he was so open in an interview with Noisey about his not being able to find much inspiration in new music.

In the interview, he says he finds more inspiration in film than he does music, but also says he follows film closer. To quote a different portion of Ulrich's interview, he says "music is not terribly inspiring anymore unfortunately. In the world of film, there are still more creative things happening – it's more intriguing."

He also gives a shout out to The Sword and Kvelertak, which is cool.

"Ten years ago or 30 years ago, it was different. Like, “Oh my god Guns N’ Roses, oh my God who are these Nirvana guys! Oasis!” You were hearing about it, and you wanted to meet them. Nowadays, there aren’t any bands that have had that impact on me. The last time where I was like, 'Holy fuck! This really inspires me,' was this band called Sword, from Austin, Texas. Stoner rock, kind of a modern Black Sabbath. Super cool. They showed up seven or eight years ago, and I just had to bring these guys on tour.

"There is a Norwegian band called Kvelertak. These bands are few and far between nowadays. This is not a black and white statement. I know more about film than I do about music because I follow it more. That doesn’t mean if something awesome came and slapped me in the face then I wouldn’t embrace it, it just shows up less and less."

Lars also says he couldn't date someone without a sense of humor, which is really the most important part of this story.
