Lars Ulrich, a drummer of METALLICA, talks about which albums he has listened to during 2020 on Rolling Stone‘s “So, How Was Your 2020?” survey.
Lars Ulrich, one founder of METALLICA, is among the best drummers alive today. So what albums and songs did Lars Ulrich listen to during the quarantine? Let’s find out!
Lars Ulrich was a guest at Rolling Stone recently and talked about which old-albums are his favorite and which albums he has listened to the most this year.
One of Rolling Stone’s “So, How Was Your 2020” questions was: “Which old album did you listen to the most this year.” Lars Ulrich explained that one of them was ALICE IN CHAINS ‘Dirt‘ album. ALICE IN CHAINS was founded in 1987, and they released the album in 1992.
“ALICE IN CHAINS‘ ‘Dirt’. It’s so inspiring. I think it’s crazy just how transparent and courageous the lyrics are, and it’s a cohesive piece of work. It still sounds as raw, transparent, honest, and courageous to my ears as ever before. I think in the earlier days I was just listening to the music and the riffs and now, hearing the vocals, lyrics, and themes, what an incredible record. It just still sounds so timely. It sounds literally like this could have been made last week.”
METALLICA’s drummer said that one of the most listened to albums this year was ‘Rage Against the Machine’. Stating that the album was still listenable and innovative despite its release in 1992, Ulrich said that it is an album that never gets old; As for the album he listened to the most in 2020, Lars Ulrich said:
“The first RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE album. From my worldview, there’s nothing that seems to put things more in perspective than RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. The music, themes, lyrics, delivery — everything seems to be so spot-on and relevant to the daily craziness that shows up whenever you unlock your device. I think it’s the perfect soundtrack to 2020.”
Also, since last month, Lars Ulrich said that METALLICA has been working pretty hard for about a month for their next studio album.
