These Photos of Metallica’s Lars Ulrich as a Baby are Adorable


Not that MetalSucks is ever shy about posting anything Metallica-related at any point throughout the year — I gotta be able to afford Legos for my kid and those Metallica ¢lick$ are sweet, OK? — but the pre-holiday doldrums have made us particularly starved for content.

And so: behold, photos of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich as a 14-month-old!

The photos were taken in 1965 for Ulrich’s first passport in his native Denmark in, and he recently discovered them in an old scrap book, then shared them to Instagram.

I definitely see the resemblance, even at only 14 months. Can you?

Metallica have managed to stayed busy during the pandemic. In May, they released a semi-acoustic, reimagined version of “Blackened.” Then, in August, they hosted a pre-recorded drive-in concert at hundreds of outdoor movie theaters and released a recording of last year’s S&M2 concert. A re-worked version of “Nothing Else Matters” is scheduled to appear in Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise movie starring The Rock and Emily Blunt. And the band hosted a virtual charity concert in November to benefit their All Within My Hands foundation, raising over $1.3 million.

Metallica are also deep into “some pretty serious writing” writing for their next album. After first floating the idea of working on new music while under quarantine in April, by June Lars Ulrich had revealed that Metallica were, indeed, in writing mode. James and Rob have both said they’ve been busy working on new songs, too, and Kirk Hammett has trumpeted the fact that he has over 600 song ideas recorded (after infamously losing his cell phone with 300+ ideas prior to the sessions for Hardwired).
