METALLICA's 'Death Magnetic' Digipack Details Revealed

UK's Metal Hammer has revealed the first details of the digipack version of METALLICA's "Death Magnetic" album, which is being released worldwide on Friday, September 12. According to the magazine, "the coffin that adorns the front of is concentric (meaning it has a coffin-shaped hole in the centre of the booklet that gets smaller as you turn each page). The images on each page in chronological order are: a car wreckage, an eyeball, a baby scan, a man in bed screaming, the cover of 'The Day That Never Comes' single, a street photo taken from on top of a building, people on a beach sunbathing, a cow's carcass, a steel pipe and fans at a concert, followed by a pic of the band standing on the street."

A number of fans complained online about the sound quality of the streams and iTunes downloads of METALLICA's "The Day That Never Comes" single, with a member of the band's web site staff sending an e-mail message stating that the problem would be corrected. A new version of the track has since been released to iTunes, but the complaints are continuing to pour in via the band's official message board, with some fans seemingly upset over the band's silence regarding the issue.
