The Lords of Summer is a new Metallica song. The band played a concert last night in Bogota, Colombia and they performed a new piece. Though the audio quality of the file is not great, it’s good enough to satisfy your appetite for new Metallica material in years.
The new Metallica song will definitely receive good critics from the fans. There is that old-school Metallica vibe present in the sound. They promised a new song in 2014, and they came up with The Lords of Summer. If the band’s long awaited tenth studio release brings more of that vibe, we can definitely expect something good.

In an interview with Billboard, guitarist Kirk Hammett previously said: “We’re a band that never has a shortage of ideas.
“You hear about these bands that are sitting in the studio and they don’t have any songs, what are they gonna do? That’s not METALLICA. METALLICA‘s problem is the total opposite. We have too many ideas. James [Hetfield, guitar/vocals] has, like, 800 ideas. I have 400. Those number alone are just crazy. That’s formidable.“
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said in an interview with U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine that the band’s next studio album is unlikely to arrive before 2015 at the earliest. The drummer explained: “Obviously, there are a lot of people asking where the next record is. We’re going to make another record, but like I said before, we don’t really feel this kind of… what’s the word? I guess ‘responsibility’ is probably the right word. We don’t feel this inherent responsibility to just churn out records whenever people want them. [Adopts a sarcastic voice] ‘I’m sorry! Let me slap myself on the wrists and go make a record for you!’ We’ll get ’round to it again.“
