Metallica have been talking about writing new material, but they’re not only writing new material as a band. Guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed he’s been working on some horror instrumentals with music director Edwin Outwater, who helped work on their recent S&M2 symphony release.
Speaking to the Metallica fan-club magazine So What!, Hammett said: “I recorded those tracks with Edwin, a small chamber orchestra and some other musicians.”
Hammett added the songs “feel like the best fucking things I’ve ever done. [..]One of them is called ‘High Plains Drifter’ and the other one’s called ‘The Incantation’. They’re not done yet. [They are] still in the rough mix stages. I mean, I have to get the rough mixes, but I have four tracks now. And the four tracks are like four different movies, man. They’re not movie soundtracks; they’re like movies. They tell a story.”
Hammett revealed the original plan for him to perform the two tracks with the Vancouver Symphony next month.
It’s a good thing Kirk didn’t set expectations too high, if we ever end up hearing these collaborations. We’ll keep you posted when it’s released.
