Rick Rubin beard work

Metallica fans, rejoice!

Not only is the heavy metal band about to start working on their 10th studio album, but super-producer Rick Rubin, who was behind their last album Death Magnetic, is returning to produce!

Bassist Robert Trujillo expressed his excitement to get back into the studio with Rubin, or the ”zen guru”, in a recent radio interview, saying:

"Yeah. I love working with Rick. Rick, to me, he's sort of a Zen guru spirit that Metallica needs right now. Not to say that we need it, because we're getting along incredibly well, we're really excited to write some new music. There's no shortage of riffage in Metallica world right now. And I think it's only gonna get better."

The metal heads are also quite cultured and are looking forward to their first show in India, which they never imagined in their "wildest dreams", as Trujillo explained:

"It's an honour for all of us that we get to be a metal band and share our music with fans in India. We love traveling and experiencing other cultures."

We're sure Metallica fans will be pret-ty stoked about this news! Are U happy to hear that Metallica is working with Rick Rubin again?

    Rubin or no Rubin, as long as they're making something to fill the giant gap of crap that exists nowadays.

    LEGENDS, and you can't argue otherwise.

    I went to the Big 4 and I must say, Metallica ROCKED! so much energy. I'm not really a metal head but, was one of the best shows I have ever been to. I am looking forward to hear more from them :)

    Rick Rubin looks like he is writing the new torah for the new age!

    Ted Templeman makes RIck Rubin look amateurish and Russell Simmons look like a Bell Hop.

    Rejoicing already. I youtube them in Moscow or at Freddie Mercury tribute concert for a pick-me-up. Works every time. Kirk bends notes like a controlled wild man. James shapes the drive with rhythm and a voice that's a metal vocal instrument, Trujillo is a bass beast; and Lars holds it all together with gifted instinctual dynamics.

    Re: firesoul – That may have been a joke but I wouldn't be surprised. What's the over/under for ballads on the new album?
