  METALLICA RELEASE NEW SONG
23 June 2014





Metallica released a new song on 20th June via Blackened Recordings entitled 'Lords of Summer - First Pass Version'. The band first debuted the song in March this year at a concert in Bogotá, Colombia.

The new recording dubbed the "the First Pass Version" clocks in at eight minutes and 20 seconds and recalls the group's thrashier Eighties offerings, with a fiery solo from lead guitarist Kirk Hammett.

Drummer Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone that the song is "fairly representative of where our creative headspace is at right now.- Whether the track makes the final cut of Metallica's next album remains to be seen.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
