Kirk Hammett maakt solo debuut
Kirk Hammett, de gitarist van Metallica, gaat dit jaar zijn solo debuut maken.
'Portals' is een EP van 4 instrumentale tracks.
Initially, before I even had the idea for a solo EP, I was inspired by the need to create some sort of soundtrack music to accompany The Kirk Hammett Collection for the first “It’s Alive” exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, 2017. I wanted to conceive music to play on a loop in the background as people walked through the exhibit. I sat down one night with a progression, and before I knew it, all the parts were there for “Maiden and the Monster.”, aldus Kirk Hammett
“This music was created with what I describe as an Audio-Cinematicapproach. They’re soundtracks to the movies in your mind.”, voegde hij er nog aan toe.
De EP zal het levenslicht zien op zaterdag 23 april voor Record Store Day.
