The Boston Globe caught up with Lars Ulrich for a Q&A session and asked the drummer about the polarized reaction to their latest effort, ‘St. Anger’. “It’s not the most easily digested record,” Ulrich admitted. “In a time where radio seems to be going conversative again in the last couple of years — and the Nickelbacks of the world are dominating it — then when a band like us comes out and does something that’s harsh and aggressive, it may be difficult for some people to initially accept it. But I’m glad we did it and I wouldn’t change one thing about it… We needed to prove to ourselves that we still had that spunk in us and that we could make that kind of record.”
