Metallica album leak...

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has told a San Francisco radio station that he’s not angry about the recent leak of Death Magnetic.

The album is said to have been sold in a Parisian record store ten days before its official release on September 12, with illegal copies making its way online late last night.

"Listen, we're ten days from release,” Ulrich said on The Woody Show on San Francisco radio station Live 105. “I mean, from here, we're golden. 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'm behaving this time. I refuse to download the leak, I'm going to wait and buy it next week. God knows I'll need something to get me through a dull week of making beds and scrubbing toilets.

To be honest from what i have heard so far it isnt going to be a very good album.
I saw them live at Leeds Festival and they played a few new songs and lets just say i wasn't overly impressed...

Interesting how he didn't feel the same way about Napstar at the time.

I guess he has learnt his lesson now that so many people think he's a money grabbing arsehole who just wants to buy more crappy artwork!

As for the album I hope it rocks but I don't hold out much hope. Still, it surely can't be any worse than St Anger....

Metallica

Funny how a hell of a lot of people always end their comments with "can't be any worse than St. Anger", or "it's gotta be a lot better than St. Anger" or "it's make or break time for Metallica".. St. Anger is a bloody good record and has some great moments on it, which with time and maturity, more people will grow to love. I know it didn't have solos, and the drums sounded a bit naff, but it was brutal, and bloody heavy, and there's some great lyrics on there. The actual song "St. Anger" is fantastic. Anyway I like the album, I love the band and have done since 1989. Death Magnetic is gonna blow me away next Friday (no i'm not gonna ruin the event by downloading some characterless empty download of it) any proper fan will wait and enjoy the day next Friday when the real deal comes out. Nuff said.

i wouldnt as far as to say its old school metallica, but its definately sounding much better than the load - st anger material. to me it sounds somewhere inbetween ...and justice and the black album. i'm really liking the songs that have been released so far, especially cyanide.
but is any1 else wanderin what the f*** the last the 3 or so minutes of the day that never comes video are about lol they guy just spends 2 and a half minutes pointin his gun at some people in a car then they fix the car and thats the end....

Finally, for the first time since the Black Album, Metallica have released a Metallica album. It's well worth the money this time kids.

This 9th studio album is Fucking explosive.
Finally Lars has put the snare back on and is smashing out some beef.
The riffs are stunning.
This album is definatly somthing new for Metallica fans to get there teeth into.


Oh and kerrang great work on the magazine keep up the good work and keep the Metallica pouring in. X

thank goodness for "try before you buy" ( <-- lolz) Iron Maiden are heavier now than Metallica are ROFL

Go and listen to Take Shat then since you obviously don't know great metal when you hear it. I'd check yourself for rigamortis if I was you dude.

It's an absolute killer miles away from St Anger, back to the roots.
Waiting for D day to buy it

Welcome back, 4 horsemen!

Just finished listening to the new album... and all I have to say is: - welcome back guys! where have you been in the last 17 years?
Ok, the album is not perfect (the unforgiven III? Come on!), and some song are too long; but Kirk solos are back! Without doubt the best Metallica album since the Black Album... I'll buy the CD!
