Metallica have revealed that they plan to enter the studio this autumn in order to record their new album.

The band's drummer Lars Ulrich said they will start working on the follow-up to 'Death Magnetic', which was released in 2008, in September.

Metal Hammer reports that Ulrich revealed the band have a host of material to officially lay down when they get to the studio. Ulrich said: "Every time James Hetfield picks up a guitar, there are some brilliant riffs that come out of it, and I try to make sure that they are all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums in behind them."

He continued: "So there are, obviously, tons of ideas sitting around waiting to be had at in terms of turning ideas of James' into songs. Pretty much when we're done with the movie and with Outside Lands, which should all be wrapped up by early September, we're gonna basically just concentrate on new music and try to get another Metallica record."

Metallica are currently working on a 3D film project, which will be helmed by Predators director Nimród Antal. The band are set to play Outside Lands festival in San Francisco, which is held from August 10-12 at Golden Gate Park.
