Metallica in preparation for the new album called “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”, Novermber 18. Metallica says in one of the earlier interview (I don’t remember which it is…), lyrics of new album certainly not involved in politics. But this attitude does not apply to personal opinions. Lars has made political comments, when he was interview with the magazine called “Ekstra Bladet” from Denmark. Interview is here, click.
It’s a danish interview. Don’t worry, Ultimate-Guitar is translate the interview and put on the web site. Here is Lars Ulrich’s speech about Donald Trump:
“I am 100 percent Danish citizen, I pay taxes in the USA but I can’t vote in the US.”
Directly asked whether he’d move back in case Trump wins the whole show, Ulrich replied:
“Yes, certainly sometimes I think about moving home to Denmark. I’ll stick to my Danish passport. If Trump becomes president and everything goes to shit, I might make my way to the airport and ask if I can get back in again.“
It was huge shocking speech about Trump. Metallica usually prefer to being neutral in such matters. But this time Lars broke this situation.
Well done Lars. This has long been an attitude that we expect from Metallica, and members.
