New Metallica is Almost Here!

August 4, 2008


The highly anticipated new Metallica album Death Magnetic will finally be released worldwide on Friday Sept. 12 via Warner Bros. Sweet!

On Friday, Metallica shot a video for their first single "The Day That Never Comes" with Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg. "We spent the better part of the afternoon playing ... to a sold out crowd of dust and smoke just outside of Los Angeles," the band says on its website. Here’s James on set talkin’ about the concept for the new video…

Metallica will be back on stage August 9th at Ozzfest in Dallas. At that show, Kirk Hammett will join Slayer's Kerry King, Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell and Anthrax's Scott Ian in a tribute to late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott.
