METALLICA's LARS ULRICH: I Would Like To Make Another Album With RICK RUBIN

Italy's Rock TV conducted an interview with METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich when the band played Milan on June 22, 2009. Watch the chat in two parts below.

Regarding METALLICA's future plans, Ulrich said, "Right now the only plan in METALLICA is we're more or less trying to survive this tour. We've got another 14 months — we're going out through August 2010. It's difficult for me to think about another record, so there are no plans. But the experience with [producer] Rick Rubin [who worked on 2008's 'Death Magnetic'] was a very positive one that I'm pretty sure that we're going to make another record with Rick; I would like to make another record with Rick at some point."

METALLICA filmed its July 7, 2009 concert in Nimes, France for an upcoming DVD release, but the catch is that the disc will be available only in France and through METALLICA's official website, Since it's a French product, you'll also need an all-region DVD player in order to watch it in North America. The DVD will arrive on October 19. METALLICA also documented its three recent shows in Mexico City for DVD, although that looks like it will be released in Latin America only.

The French concert is available to view for free at from July 10 through July 13 to anyone in the world who registers at the site.

METALLICA will be touring Europe through early August. The band starts a North American trek on September 14 in Nashville as it continues supporting 2008's "Death Magnetic" album.
