It’s a biggie. In the new issue of Metal Hammer, we sit down with the biggest band in metal for a world exclusive new interview.

Metallica talk candidly about the emotional impact of James Hetfield returning to rehab, and what it was like having to put their plans on hold as everything ground to a halt. Plus, they give us the lowdown on their immense (and slightly hectic) S&M2 celebrations and tell us what they’ve been up to in 2020  - including some tasty hints about the next album.

Also in the new issue, we discover the secret side of Motörhead legend Lemmy courtesy of one of his very closest friends, find out why mysterious black-jazz metallers Imperial Triumphant are the underground’s next breakout band, dig inside the dark heart of the amazing new Oceans Of Slumber album, count down the 20 greatest Download moments ever and bring you brand new interviews with Backxwash, A.A. Williams, Code Orange, Avatar, Mystifier, In Flames and much, much more.

All that and more only in the new issue of Metal Hammer – on sale now.
