Metallica has completed the recordings for their 10th studio album, expected to be released later this year.
Speaking with NBC Sports on June 6th prior to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins, Metallica singer James Hetfield revealed: "We're mixing it now, so hopefully by fall it'll be out and hitting people's ears. We're super stoked about it. It's been a long time coming, and, you know, this is what we do. We love playing, and the next album is exactly what it's supposed to be, so we're excited about it."
