Tremendous horror fan Kirk Hammett loves a superb scare – and now he is offering one for followers with a mysterious new publish on his TikTok and Twitter accounts that mixes acoustic music with a superb old style horror story.
Shared at this time, September 10, the Metaliica guitarist presents a bluesy soundtrack accompanied by a imprecise video of an individual navigating a highway lined with bushes. Within the caption, Hammett provides, “Learn half one now,” and hyperlinks to his Reddit page with a protracted journal entry that tells fairly the twisted story.
Entitled, “I HAVE TO GET RID OF THIS GUITAR I FOUND [PART ONE],” there may be an intro that explains a bit extra about what is going on on. A lady named Abigail Forte is seemingly on the lookout for her brother William “Wills” Forte; she’s found a journal he wrote and a cassette tape of discipline recordings he had which have a sinister really feel. Abigail was linked to Hammett by way of a pal to attempt to unravel the which means and, thus, this story-soundtrack was born.
As Abigail explains within the intro, “Now we have determined that whereas we can not enable the precise sounds from the cassette to be launched, we will share renditions of the music. Kirk Hammett has agreed to shortly transpose the much less complicated parts of the cassette whereas conserving the integrity of the unique discipline recordings intact. These you possibly can play or loop alongside the studying of every half, to create the suitable temper for these journal entries.”
She provides, “We nonetheless advise you are taking precautions earlier than listening to the recordings (comparable to burning sage, reciting prayers, drawing protecting sigils). What you’ll hear are some phrases and motifs impressed by the cursed melodies recorded on to this mysterious cassette.”
Will’s journal entry that follows tells a torrid story of his time on the highway as a musician with some twists and turns which might be completely spine-tingling.
In fact, like every good horror story, the reader is left questioning: Is that this actual? It is onerous to gauge if there’s a real-life Wills or Abigail behind this story. A Google search solely appears to uncover information on Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte whereas there’s even much less of a path of Abigail Forte apart from a number of low-profile social media accounts that do not appear to suit.
It could possibly be that Hammett has written this all himself as an attention-grabbing new idea challenge. In 2012, he penned the guide, “Too Much Horror Business” overlaying his in depth assortment of the macabre that options toys, props, film posters and extra overlaying the gamut of horror classics. So possibly he is received the itch to now write his personal scary saga. (And in that case, we hope he retains going as a result of the writing is basically good.)

Hammett has additionally featured his private horror assortment at Metallica’s Orion festivals and the guitarist’s personal occasion, Fear FestEvil. And his newest work, his debut solo EP Portals that was launched in April is impressed by horror films.
Because the guitarist instructed Goldmine, “I assumed, oh nicely, this could be nice to include completely different eras of horror films someway, into the music, and so ‘Maiden and the Monster’ is type of my illustration of these early horror films from the ’20s and ’30s. I actually tried to seize the environment of these movies, the Gothic really feel and the presence of one thing atmospheric and moody.”
Hammett additionally exclusively told Loudwire, he is prepared to start out scoring movies, he is simply ready to get the decision to take action. If any Hollywood producers on the market are studying “I HAVE TO GET RID OF THIS GUITAR I FOUND [PART ONE]” and listening to Hammett’s soundtrack, his line’s open.
