Drummer LARS ULRICH still enjoys being in heavy metal veterans Metallica despite industry "bulls**t" - because of his love of playing music.

Lars is particularly satisfied with the ENTER SANDMAN group's latest top-selling album, ST ANGER.

He says, "There's a lot of bulls**t that comes in the wake of what we do. But when all that goes away and it's the four of us in the room playing music that's when everything dissipates.

"And the experience we had making this record was just awesome. It was just amazing.

"And when you ask, 'Why do we keep doing this?', it's because we keep coming back to the love of it. And the freedom of it."
