This photo that was uploaded on Metallica’s Instagram page has caused series of talks among fans of the band, or not. So, is Metallica recording their new album, or are they just making demos before the actual recording takes place? James Hetfield in a recent show joked that they’ve been working on a new album for the last 20 years, but the process is coming to an end, but he avoided to define when the new album will be out. What’s certain is that Metallica’s studio album will precede the re-releases of “Kill ‘Em All” and “Ride The Lightning”, as well as the live album “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France – June 11th, 2003”.
