Rolling Stone: See Metallica's Searing 'One' With Classical Pianist Lang Lang

Three years after Metallica debuted their new arrangement of "One" with classical pianist Lang Lang at the Grammys, the band teamed once again with the virtuoso at a concert in his native China. The fiery performance, which showed the pianist navigating the thrash tune's jagged rhythms with ease and playing around Kirk Hammett's solos, took place at LeSports Center in Beijing on Wednesday.

Noisey: I Went on a First Date with Metallica's Lars Ulrich

It got better, but the beginning bit was dreadful.

"So you've had three marriages. Do you still believe in the institution of marriage?" Yes, this is my opening gambit. Lars Ulrich pauses, looks taken aback and after one beat too long replies: "Um…yes, yes I do. I've lived a lot. A third marriage… you save the best for last."

FasterLouder: Metallica, forever: An interview with Kirk Hammett

Metallica’s new album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, is pretty much what you’d expect from the world’s most successful metal band in 2016 – primarily because we no longer have to expect much from Metallica.

It’s not really their fault. Between the fragmentation of music delivery and the dipping of rock music’s cultural significance, Metallica releasing a record doesn’t feel like a ‘moment’ any more, insomuch as it feels like a veteran band simply giving themselves a reason to tour, and their fans a reason to go that tour and bitch about them playing new songs.

City Weekend: Metallica Shanghai 2017: A Quick Review

"Let's play some old stuff", frontman James Hetfield said to the delight of a near capacity crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

A band that has “been there, done that” like Metallica knows what people want. Even though the tour is in support of their latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, only five songs from the album were included in the near two-and-a-half-hour set.

Clique: Clique x Metallica

Mouloud Achour reçoit James Hetfield, le leader de Metallica. Après huit longues années d’attente pour les fans, le groupe mythique de heavy metal vient de sortir son onzième album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, et entame une tournée mondiale. Dans cette conversation, James Hetfield se dévoile comme rarement : il partage son ressenti sur les attentats du 13 novembre, évoque sa croyance en « une force supérieure qui lui aurait sauvé la vie », le rapport à la célébrité et… les goûts musicaux très mainstream de sa femme.

Korean Joongang Daily: Metallica electrifies Seoul with a powerful show

One band has become so synonymous with the heavy metal genre that despite the arguably dying rock scene in the country, was able to fill a stadium of metalheads with just their reputation alone.

It was a loud, chaotic and beautiful display of a classic heavy metal show. Metallica brought a thunderstorm to the Gocheok Sky Dome on Wednesday, and needless to say, the crowd was electrified.

Loudwire: Metallica’s ‘Now That We’re Dead’ + ‘Halo on Fire’ Make Live Debuts in South Korea

Metallica made the most of their album rollout last fall, shooting videos for every song on the Hardwired … To Self-Destruct album and delivering a majority of them over a 24-hour period prior to the release of the disc. But while that may have been fun for fans, not all of the disc’s songs have made their concert debut yet. However, Metallica got a little closer to that goal, with two more Hardwired tracks receiving their live debut Wednesday (Jan. 11) in Seoul, South Korea.

WTF with Marc Maron: Episode 775 James Hetifeld

Before James Hetfield formed Metallica, his musical awareness was shaped in equal parts by classical music, Aerosmith and the desire to kill disco. James talks with Marc about the band's continued growth, his recovery from not only addiction but also anger issues, and his belief that bands need to reconcile no matter how bad the break-up.
