Metallica's 'Death Magnetic' Leaked!

September 4, 2008

Some genius who will probably be arrested at any moment has uploaded every single track from the upcoming Metallica LP Death Magnetic. The record has been all over torrent sites after a store in France sold a few copies of the album yesterday. I didn’t know the French liked Metallica?

Despite the leak, Lars Ulrich said he wasn't too concerned about losing sales.

"Listen, we're ten days from release," he told US radio station Live 105.

"I mean, from here, we're golden," he added. "If this thing leaks all over the world today or tomorrow, happy days. Happy days. Trust me. Ten days out and it hasn't quote-unquote fallen off the truck yet? Everybody's happy. It's 2008 and it's part of how it is these days, so it's fine. We're happy."

I can’t believe Mr. Ulrich just uttered those words.

Here’s a taste of "The Unforgiven III" and the instrumental "Suicide & Redemption." Be prepared for the vocal work on "The Unforgiven III," it gets a little ugly y'all. I still wuv you James.
