Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Ghost frontman, Tobias Forge got together with Metallica’s fan magazine So What! for some “mid-tour natter.” Both metal icons are currently in the middle of a three month tour of Europe and had a lot to talk about. Hammett and Forge delve into guitar talk, how some bands can fail at “reaching” the audience and more.

Hammett even described his pre-show mentality and how every show is the last show:

“In my mind, it’s an event and I’m going to approach it like it’s the fucking last show I’m going to play and just fucking give it my all. Having that mindset allows me to go out there and play the same show … it’s always an event in my mind.”
