Death Magnetic released by French music store 2 weeks early = leakage!

#1
I did a search and nothing came up

According to several unconfirmed Internet reports, a French record store allegedly began selling copies of the new METALLICA album "Death Magnetic" earlier today nearly two weeks ahead of the CD's scheduled September 12 worldwide release date. A couple of the fans that were lucky enough to purchase these early copies have posted pictures of what is apparently the album's final packaging.

Also, an interview with Lars about the release: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=103943


Not that I'm overly with Metallica as of late, I'm still pumped for hearing this!

It's pretty hard to find someone as hardcore as Tom. The race for hardcore supremacy would be pretty close but i think Tom's got his nose just in front for now...

Putting Death in your album name is sooo totally lame.


That store is totally going to get raped up the ass when Lars decides to sue them.

Not counting the demos, no Death album has the word "death" in its name.

It doesn't count when your band name is Death and you play Death metal.


It only counts when your band is an '80's relic trying to recapture the same excitement it did with their earlier albums yet fail constantly due to confoming to trends because hasbeens in their late 40's can't create something decent without being substancially liquored up.
