Metallica’s latest album “Hardwired … To Self-Destruct” was released last year and has achieved a great sales success all over the world.

Metallica’s former bassist, Jason Newsted, spoke in an interview with Ultimate-guitar and described his thoughts on Metallica’s new album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. He said:

“The album is a bit different than the other efforts that led up to it. Robert’s a great fuckin’ bass player and he’s always been a great bass player.

I’ve known him for 25 years at least. He’s always been good and I owned all the Infectious [Grooves] records and I wore Infectious t-shirts. I’m down. That guy has always got my respect. He got in there and he can hang with those guys and make it sound like it does? Peace, peace, power to you.

This last album, I feel they’ve kinda come back into stride and there’s something of substance here.”

He also talked about the performance of bassist Rob Trujillo. You can read entire interview from here.
