If you understand ‘Lulu’…then you’re on drugs

Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto has spoken about his band’s reaction when they heard Lou Reed and Metallica’s collaboration album ‘Lulu’, saying that he reckons you “must be on drugs” if you think you understand the record.

The album, which is based around German playwright Frank Wedekind and his play in 1913 about the life of an abused dancer, has been met with a mostly negative reaction from critics and fans alike and the Trivium bassist says his band cannot get his head around why the metal titans recorded it.

Asked what he thought of ‘Lulu’, Gregoletto said: “It’s really weird. Do I understand it? If anyone thinks they understand it, they’re on drugs. It’s a weird album, man! We listened to most of it. We were just like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ It’s so weird. I saw some videos of it live and if those dudes are happy doing that, then more power to them, because they’re still my favourite band, but it’s really weird and I think everyone thinks that, too.”

Metallica will headline next summer’s Download Festival, playing their 1991 self-titled fifth album – widely known as The Black Album – in its entirety.

They released their new album ‘In Waves’ earlier this year.
