METALLICA's HETFIELD Talks To Germany's RADIO EINS; Audio Available

METALLICA guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield took part in a live interview with Anja Caspary of the German radio station Radio Eins on Monday, August 25. The chat is now available for download as an MP3 audio file at this location.

METALLICA recently posted another new song from its upcoming album, "Death Magnetic", at the band's official web site. Titled "My Apocalypse", the track closes the CD and is a fast thrash metal anthem in the style of vintage METALLICA numbers such as "Battery" and "Damage Inc." but without the thick, crunchy production that made those songs so undeniably powerful. The tune is the second new one to be heard from the album, following the release last week of the first official single, "The Day That Never Comes". "Death Magnetic" arrives worldwide on Friday, September 12.

A number of fans complained online about the sound quality of the streams and iTunes downloads of "The Day That Never Comes", 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.
