Word is out: Lars Ulrich said he reads online comments about Metallica‘s new music. In a recent interview to Metal Hammer, Ulrich admitted to reading comments on his band’s social media.

When Metallica released “Lux Æterna” last year, Ulrich couldn’t resist but to sneak a look online to see what fans were saying about their new track. 

“If you decide to go down into the comment sections, at least for me, you have to prepare yourself for not taking any of it overly personally. You have to kind of remove yourself from it. But I’d like to challenge anybody in a band to say they don’t look at comments.”
