Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has revealed he is working on some new riffs for their upcoming album. That will also hype the metalheads who follow him.
Kirk Hammett, who joined the legendary band in 1983, revealed that he was working on some new riffs on Twitter. He just posted a tweet that plainly revealed that the work was currently in progress. This tweet understandably hyped many Metallica fans all over the world, as the last album they released was in 2016. The tweet raised many questions concerning a new album, but there’s nothing confirmed as of now. Here’s the tweet Kirk Hammett shared.
There are many fans expressing their hunger for a new album, as many as those who remind Hammett of himself losing his phone earlier. “Don’t lose your phone again,” they imply, as it was a huge blow for Metallica‘s guitarist to lose a phone that contained many of his musical ideas.

He also added:
“It’s taking a couple of months, literally, for me to go through all – Hardwired…To Self-Destruct album. I’ve got a wealth of material, and so, at any given point when we all decide, ‘Okay, let’s start formulating a schedule to start writing songs and recording it.’ I’m ready. I’m there, from day one.”
Though we do not know many things about a possible album, it is highly likely to be released in the future, as we already know there is a lot of material that Metallica has. We know that because Kirk Hammett earlier revealed that they had a lot of material to follow up their last album.
Kirk Hammett did not work on the last album that much, and that was probably because of his personal problems, James Hetfield implied earlier. It seems we’re going to see Hammett work more on this new possible album, which we do not know much about currently.
