Metallica Returns To The Studio!!!!

Later this year, Metallica confirms their tenth album recording.

The band have planned that once they will complete with their 3-D concert film they will be heading back towards studio for the preparation of their album.

Drummer Lars Ulrich said: "We're gonna basically just concentrate on new music and try to get another Metallica record done."

He said frontman James Hetfield has lots of new ideas, adding: "Every time he picks up a guitar there's some brilliant riff that comes out of him.

"I try to make sure that they're all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums behind them.

"So there are, obviously, tons of ideas sitting around waiting to be had at in terms of turning ideas of James' into songs."

James Hetfield of Metallica's Designed Goggles

James Hetfield, Metallica's front man started the limited-edition JH Sutro Sunglasses in collaboration with Sutro Eyewear.His model is duly dubbed "the Hetfield," which comes in black and tortoise versions.

The glasses does resembles with a bit like Ray Ban, but it will be the more attractive piece for biker or punk.Hetfield describes them as "built to look faster than a speeding riff and to handle the life of a road dog like me."

The hinges of glasses are considered as 10 time stronger than any normal sunglasses.T hey retail for $219.99 and are a good middleground between a classic frame shape -- one that reads "grown-up" -- and one that reads "rocker dude." The price is also a nice compromise between designer shades by Tom Ford, which run about $400, and Ray-Bans, which run about $125.
