Supposedly, the electric guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett can choose from a pool of no less than 1200 new guitar riffs they’ve collected during the last years. 800 riffs were written by Hetfield and another 400 ones by Hammett.

The recordings began this fall and will go on until late 2013. The new album will be published in the end of 2013 or in early 2014.
