METALLICA have returned to rehearsals it seems! Now it’s not really clear if the band is rehearsing for a specific event or if they are preparing for some sort of recording session, but the fact that these guys are practicing in their studios in San Rafael, California together is definitely a good sign.
James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo can be seen playing the intro to “Creeping Death” in a recently posted video (which can be seen above), with everyone except Hetfield wearing face masks.
In early May, the four members of METALLICA overcame social distancing to record a new version of their song “Blackened”, with each member separated in his own home. The split-screen video was posted to the band’s social media channels.
Back in April, Lars had said in an online chat that the band could get together to write and record a new album while in quarantine.
Maybe that’s why they’re in rehearsals?
