Drummer Lars Ulrich of Metallica has teased their upcoming record as the best one they've ever made.
In the latest issue of Classic Rock, the drummer promises the follow up to 2016's Hardwired...To Self Destruct will be the best album they've ever made, reports Loudwire.
"It's the heaviest thing, the coolest," Ulrich says. "But all kidding aside, if it wasn't because we thought that the best record was still ahead of us, then why keep doing it?
"In Metallica we love the creative process, and it's hard for me to imagine that we'll ever stop making records."
Ulrich spoke about the new record earlier this year, telling Rolling Stone that the band has been hard at work, and that they were "three, four weeks into some pretty serious writing".
"Writing always makes me feel enthusiastic about what's next. It's like there's an opportunity here to still make the best record, to still make a difference."
