Amidst the current 'love it/hate it' reaction from Metallica fans to their Lou Reed collaboration, Lulu, the band are now forging ahead and recording new material of their own.

Bass player, Rob Trujillo, spoke in an interview and revealed that the band are already recording, and will be recording most of next year.

He told Tabloid!:

"We've got a couple of new songs we have been working on the past couple of weeks. The writing process for the new Metallica album has begun. We've been in the studio with Rick Rubin, working on a couple of things, and we're going to be recording during the most of next year.

"We've got a lot of work ahead of us. But the great thing is that we have sort of already jumped off the launch pad and we're swimming. It's happening. It's reality. It's a lot of fun, there are a lot of ideas, and we're really excited about the new record. For me, personally, Death Magnetic was the launch pad for the next record. This is the beginning of something very, very cool."

Trujillo also spoke about the process of recording with Lou Reed:

"He basically came out to our studio and we started writing. But the great thing about it is that it was spontaneous; a lot of the music was centred around jamming, and some of it was even recorded in one take. He actually helped us expand out creative horizons, and he really inspired us."
