METALLICA Guitarist KIRK HAMMETT - "'Spit Out The Bone' Is The Mount Everest Of The New Album"

In a new interview with Variety, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett discussed the band's upcoming WorldWired tour and the new album, Hardwired...To Self Destruct.

Hammett: "'Spit Out the Bone' is the Mount Everest of the new album — the highest peak and the hardest ascent. On the rest of the record, I improvised my solos — not that one. The instrumentation on that song is so tight that I wanted to solo with equal precision. How hard is it to play? We haven’t done it yet live. We keep saying that we will by summer. We really have to work up to it!"
