Metallica Desperate For New Bands

Rockers METALLICA are desperate for an upcoming band to "steal their thunder" and knock them off the top of the charts.
The band topped the U.K album charts this week (begs15Sep08) with their new LP Death Magnetic.
But drummer Lars Ulrich is surprised the band is still popular and hopes a new breed of rockers will replace them in the charts.
He says, "I hope somebody will come and steal the thunder from us. It hasn't happened yet.
"It's amazing people are still so occupied with us.
"There are some incredible young bands out there... but unlike older guys Iron Maiden, (Black) Sabbath or AC DC they don't have the timelessness or the history which seems to play a factor."

Even if Lars Ulrich might have caused an immense amount of trouble to the music industry with his crusade against Napster and upset many of their fans (read more at sebinomics.wordpress.com), Metallica is still one of the greatest Heavy Metal bands that have ever played the stages. They've been around for 27 years now and have gone through good and bad times. All of that made them who they are today. That is why people still want Metallica, and it will take a while until a new band will take their fire.
