Metallica Update: Lars Ulrich messed up their “And Justice for All" Album? Producer reveals all as a New Album is being recorded
Metallica's "...And Justice For All" Album is considered to be one of the greatest albums from the metal punk band but many would say that the bass guitar is too low on that album. Steve Thompson reveals shocking revelation on why the album was recorded that way and Lars Ulrich may be the guilty party.
Steve Thompson, who is a prominent music producer, blamed Lars Ulrich for the lack of bass in Metallica's And Justice For All album. To note, Steve Thomson is a producer who was able to work with a wide range of music icons including Guns N' Roses, Korn, Soundgarden, and Metallica. He has also worked for Paul Simon, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Aretha Franklin, and the like. In fact, he even worked with Blue Traveler and Yoko Ono!
The album "And Justice for All" is regarded to be the 4th studio album launched by American heavy metal group Metallica, and it was released by Elektra Records. This album is also the band's first time to showcase their bassist Jason Newsted, which is after the death of Cliff Burton. The album provides long and complex songs and it is accompanied by fast tempos that leave everyone in exciting mood.
In this bittersweet revelation, Steve Thompson said that while he loves the band, he isn't sure about the direction where Lars Ulrich is driving at. Thompson further added that the album could have been a very promising one; only the band is more inclined of giving something that's a bit trashy and worse, without a bass. Of all these, Thompson has only one statement to conclude his revelation about Lars Ulrich: "I wanted to cold cock him right there. It was a shame because I'm the one getting the sh-t for the lack of bass."
On the other hand, fans of Metallica can look at the brighter side because drummer Lars Ulrich said they will be launching a new album very soon! Lars revealed that they are almost finished with the recording and he is also eager to tell that fans can look forward to a better and newer Metallica!
