METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Offers Update On New Album

October 30, 2002

METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich made a surprise appearance yesterday during a club chat session via METALLICA's fan club web site,, and answered a few questions posed by club members.

Among the items revealed by Lars during the session were the following:

* A few of the recently-composed new songs have been discarded for the first time ever and the band are now on what they call "round two of the keepers".

* Lars really did sing on the third verse of the RAMONES cover song "53rd and 3rd" (to appear on the upcoming "We're a Happy Family: A Tribute to the Ramones" compilation CD)

* There are between 10 and 20 songs planned for the new album

* The band is not currently planning any more small gigs like the Kimo's club show that took place in early June.

* When asked about how the recording process is going, Lars said: "The hardest thing is forcing myself to go home and eat dinner with the family. Time, baby, is a hard thing for me to juggle."
