    A few months ago our own Kirk Hammett hinted at a new Metallica project that's "not really 100 percent a Metallica record." * While Kirk may have jumped the gun a little (and has since been properly punished with a series of push-ups!), we are more than proud to announce that we have just completed recording a full length album that is a collaboration with none other than the legendary Lou Reed.

    Ever since we had the pleasure of performing with Lou at the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Madison Square Garden in October of 2009, we have been kicking around the idea of making a record together. *Some of you astute Bay Area residents may have picked up news of recent Lou Reed sightings in the greater San Francisco area and we have indeed been working at our home studio at HQ on and off over the last few months. *In what would be lightning speed for a Metallica related project, we recorded ten songs during this time and while at this moment we're not exactly sure when you'll hear it, we're beyond excited to share with you that the recording sessions wrapped up last week.

    A true innovator and easily one of the most influential songwriters, musicians, and performers in rock music history, Lou's work with the Velvet Underground and as a solo artist has such an enduring quality that he has long been revered and respected by us and many of our peers. *We can't wait for you to listen to the finished record, so as we like to hear ourselves say around here, keep watching this spot for updates . . . we'll be back with more details as they come together.

    I had a feeling that when Kirk mentioned this a while back that it would be something quite different, but not this different. Interesting.

    Interesting idea! I've got no idea what that would sound like.

    This is either going to suck, or be the best album of all time.

    With the 3 major egos involved, I'm better on the former.

    I picture this sounding kind of Load inspired, but can't imagine them going that direction at this point in their career. Likewise, I can't imagine Lou singing on anything as thrash as most of the material on Death Magnetic, so it will certainly be an interesting collaboration. I admire them for again doing something different rather than ride the wave of success they are on too.

    I have never been a big Lou Reed fan, so I dunno that I will be interested enough to care either way really

    Actually, I would hope that they simply don't care.

    30 second sample...



    It's not as bad as I was expecting (well, not really "bad" at all) but still kinda hard to tell from such a short clip.

    It makes me not want to hear another 30 seconds of this collaboration.

    The spoken word doesn't seem mixed with the music real well at all, thats the biggest issue for me, its just kinda sitting awkwardly on top.

    Listened to longer sample, Lou Reed still turns me off with his more spoken the sung approach

    That's all he's ever done though. He's never hit a note in 40 years.
