Each guitar also includes a Basil Gogos giclée of Nosferatu signed by Basil Gogos and a limited-edition Famous Zombies Jr Kirk Von Hammett Zombie, a.ka. "Lil Kirk."

Asked about the album's progress in a recent radio interview, Hammett replied: "I can't really put any sort of markers on how far we are along. All I can tell you, man, is we're working on it. And sometimes it goes quickly, sometimes it doesn’t. Most likely it will come out next year — in a perfect world, if we can keep to our schedule. And we'll see. That's all I can really say."
