METALLICA has announced the title of its new album "Death Magnetic" by posting the finalized/complete version (see below) of the image that originally appeared on the band's official web site on Tuesday (June 10) under the headline "???." The CD is due out in September.
A short video clip revealing the new album title and featuring an audio sample of a brand new song can be viewed below.
Just one day after several UK web sites posted early reviews of six new METALLICA songs that were previewed for them in London in early June, the reports were all taken down, reportedly at the request of the band's management. METALLICA has since issued a statement blaming a management "error" for the move and has apparently asked for the reviews to be re-posted.
METALLICA performed a "secret" show Thursday night (June 12) at The Basement in Nashville, Tennessee in front of an estimated 175 people. The band played Tennessee's Bonnaroo festival Friday (June 13) and is scheduled to perform at the one-day Ozzfest in Dallas on August 9, with a full North American tour in the works for the fall.
