SUM-41 To Sound Like METALLICA On The Next Album

Canadian punk-pop combo SUM 41 recently told Rolling Stone magazine that their follow-up to 2002's "Does This Look Infected", which the group will start writing next month in their hometown of Toronto, will be a more guitar-heavy affair than was the case in the past.

"It's going to be more metal-ish," bassist Cone McCaslin said. "More of a [METALLICA] 'Master of Puppets' thing, but Deryck Whibley can't sing like James Hetfield, so there's going to be a lot of choruses. Like 'Still Waiting' [from 'Infected'] — heavy verses and melodic choruses. I don't think there's going to be too many pop songs."

The band will polish songs throughout the fall and hit the studio with producer/manager Greig Nori in February. A summer 2004 release is expected.
