Metallica: Going Old School On The New Rubin Produced Album?

Metallica are working with producer Rick Rubin on the album that will hopefully make us forget all about the whole "Lulu" debacle. You never know with Metallica, but there’s a good chance we will see the follow-up to "Death Magnetic" in 2012. And producer Rubin will have one helluva year, producing both Metallica and the new studio album by Black Sabbath!

From the early thrash days of ‘Jump in the Fire’ to the more epic metal on ‘Master of Puppets’ and eventually mainstream hard rock like ‘Nothing Else Matters’ - Metallica has brought several different degrees of rock to audiences and fans everywhere.
Again teaming with ‘Death Magnetic’ producer Rick Rubin, Metallica has begun work on their latest collection of tunes. Bassist Robert Trujillo gave a hint at the direction of the new material speaking to in October:
“We’ve been busy writing and recording. We’ve got a couple of new songs we have been working on the past couple of weeks. The writing process for the new Metallica album has begun. We’ve been in the studio with Rick Rubin, working on a couple of things, and we’re going to be recording during the most of next year. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. But the great thing is that we have sort of already jumped off the launch pad and we’re swimming. It’s happening. It’s reality. It’s a lot of fun, there are a lot of ideas, and we’re really excited about the new record. For me, personally, ‘Death Magnetic’ was the launch pad for the next record. This is the beginning of something very, very cool.”
