Lars Ulrich reveals which band was his favorite in 2018

In a interview with Maxim, Lars Ulrich said that Arctic Monkeys as his “main musical mainstay” of 2018.


He said:

“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.”

In 2012 he talked about the band in Metallica’s Orion Music + More festival:

“For me, having the Arctic Monkeys on there is big. I think they’re a heavy metal band disguised as an indie band… If you listen to a song like ‘Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But…’, there’s almost a Rush element in there.”
