Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett hopes that the music found on their upcoming eleventh studio album will help unite people. Speaking to Classic Rock regarding that, he offered:

Metallica has always been about bringing people together through music. I think the sentiment now is that people need music more than ever to bring everyone together and collectively celebrate that we’ve got to this point. There’s a lot of division in the world, and hopefully this Metallica album will cut through the division and bring people together in ways that are more beneficial for everyone over all.”

He continued:

“We’ve tried to make the most of the COVID year-and-a-half, and we’ve been pretty successful. We’ve got together remotely and worked, and we’ve got together [properly] and worked. Things are moving really well. I would say that the music we’re coming up with is very appropriate for the times.”

“Music should bring everyone together, it should be a celebration. That’s what music is about. It’s not about selling albums or getting Grammys, it’s about putting out good music and helping the situation with that music.”

Well before a new album from the band hits, they will be dropping a deluxe edition of their 16x multi-platinum self-titled album (aka ‘The Black Album‘) on September 10th. A guest-filled tribute album to it titled “The Metallica Blacklist” will arrive on the same date.
