Metal legends Metallica have announced plans to release a new double-album titled Hardwired…To Self-Destruct on November 18. A video for the first single can be found below. Meanwhile, here's the official word courtesy of Metallica.com:

"It really does exist! We know it's been a long time coming, but today we proudly introduce you to , the long awaited next Metallica studio album that is the follow-up to Death Magnetic! Two discs, nearly 80 minutes of music is coming your way on November 18, 2016… yes, THIS YEAR!

"Hardwired… represents the next phase of our journey as Metallica and we are so excited to share it with you. If anyone was tuned into radio station 93X in Minneapolis earlier today, you heard the world debut of the first track, 'Hardwired' and we're hoping you'll hear a lot more of it in the coming days.

"Produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, this is our 11th studio album and is available for pre-order in a variety of configurations including 12 songs on a double CD, vinyl, digital download, as well as a deluxe version with the riffs that were the origins of the album. Everyone who pre-orders the album through Metallica.com will receive an instant download of the song 'Hardwired'."

I remember when Todd Jones gave them a chance opening for NAILS in the early 80's. This band would have been nothing if it weren't for him.

Ummmmmm..... ya.
Well, kinda groovy, simple as fck and this won't get radio play. Is gaytallica revolting or trying get fans back? Can't even hear the bass (of course), Kirk still shreds, rhythm is "eh", Hetfield trying to be hard is kinda funny and Lars has never changed that shit beat.

Pretty much what you would expect.

That album cover looks like a half-assed middle school art project that deserved a D, but the teacher gave it a C because it was made by a good student.

Give em at least SOME credit. I think they sub out their album artwork to 1st semester graphic design students at the local community college lol

I am by NO means writing this post in defense of Metallica-but this is the most interesting thing they have released since the "Black" album... Saint Anger was a pile of dog shit embedded into the tread of the twelve dollar plastic bottomed sneakers yo momma bought you from Payless Shoe Store but rehashing the damage incorporated beat into anything new you may write is tiring,plus i would like to hear Kirk Hammett play a guitar solo without using his wah-wah pedal...

Vanflip.......Metallica robbed in St Louis.....set up a GoFundMe-you mean busflip(?) Karma gets Lars this time, watch it in final destination 666 soundtrack played by Yanni. it's Master of Puppets(the entire recording) played backwards on a cello.

If Todd Jones was still in this band, they'd make a dent in the metal world. Bunch of posers.
