Also of interest to Metallica fans would be the XM radio "Mandatory Metallica" going on right now through September.
So for any metal/metallica fans out there there are now two new studio singles and a new live single that have been released for their new album Death Magnetic.
I would have to say I really like what I'm hearing.
Their newest My Apocalypse is their thrashiest song they've released since the black album, and the other two are some of the best I've heard since songs like Fuel and stuff on the Black Album.
Well I guess I shouldn't say best, I liked a lot of there Load Reload era stuff but this is closer to the Metallica of old so to speak.
I'm really excited for the new album in September myself.
Mandatory Metallica is an amazing amalgam of the greatest rock band in history. The channel will play music from the entire Metallica catalog, including rare live recordings from the band's personal concert archives, extensive interviews with the band and more. Metallica is one of the most influential and commercially successful heavy metal bands, selling more than 100 million albums world-wide - more than half of which were sold in the U.S.
"Mandatory Metallica" (XM 51) will be available on XM from August 16 through September 30.
