• The last album Metallica released was in ’08, titled “Death Magnetic”.
  • Since then they have acquired a new producer, Greg Fidelman.
  • According to Kirk Hammet, Fidelman is an engineer who has the drive to always keep the project moving forward, indeed, he is a welcome asset to the team.
  • Unfortunately, the album seems to be taking longer than they thought because they are also going on tour, the dates and locations are listed below.
  • That and family issues have them unsure of when exactly the new album is going to be released.
  • It’s good to know they are doing well and continuing on as a band, it seems they mesh well with their new producer and no serious confrontations come about from the stress of hard work.
  • Metallica has also found time to release an exact duplication of their 1982 demo tape No Life ‘Til Leather as a limited-edition cassette for Record Store Day, which is on April 16, 2016.
  • What do you personally think of Metallica? Are they up to par with you terms? How do they compare to other Alternative Rock artists? Does Metallica deserve as much credit as other artists in the genre. Does it deserve more credit, or less?
