Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett will release his first solo record, "Portals," on the band's own Blackened Recordings label on April 23.
Hammett's' people' say, "Portals is a collection of gateways to myriad musical and psychic destinations." "Recorded in multiple locales ranging from Los Angeles to Paris to Oahu, Portals is both the result of musical and metaphysical journeys," Hammett's people report. They say it's "An invitation to inner worlds accessible only by music and the psyche it fuels."
Hammett continues, "This music was created with what I describe as an Audio-Cinematic approach. They're soundtracks to the movies in your mind." "Portals" is to be released across digital platforms, on CD, and as a Record Store Day Exclusive Ocean Blue Vinyl EP (including a download card).
