During a recent conversation with Maxim, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich singled out the Arctic Monkeys as his “main musical mainstay” of 2018.
Asked if he’s listening to any new music that is really inspiring him, Ulrich replied:
“When I’m working out or driving from point A to point B, I listen more to the Arctic Monkeys than anything else. Their new album [‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’] that came out in May is just an incredible record.
“It just makes you want to go back and revisit their whole catalog because each record is so different. You’d go back and revisit things from previous records and fall in love with them for different reasons than you did five years ago or eight years ago.
“I would say when I think of 2018, the main musical mainstay is definitely the Arctic Monkeys for me. But lately, I’ve spent a lot of my free time seeing films.”
