Metallica Confirm 'Quebec Magnetic' As First Self-Released Title

Metallica's live DVD Quebec Magnetic will be their first self-released title, the band have confirmed.

Ultimate Guitar

The thrash giants haven't revealed full details about their own label, but say they're "excited that for the first time we get to hold all the reins on a release from start to finish".

And they've taken the opportunity to put their first offering on sale at a "fan friendly price" fitting since the tracklist was chosen by the band's supporters.

"Queben Magnetic" was shot over two nights in Canada in 2009 during the Death Magnetic tour. It will be released on December 10.

Metallica say: "The DVD and blu-ray will be out on our very own label in North America. There are still some Is being dotted and Ts crossed, so we can't give you a name or fancy logo just yet.

Since we now get to call all the shots, the double-DVD and single-disc blu-ray will be available for a price we thought was very fan-friendly. Suggested retail will be $15.98 for either format."

"Quebec Magnetic" tracklist:

01. That Was Just Your Life 02. The End Of The Line 03. The Four Horsemen 04. The Shortest Straw 05. One 06. Broken, Beat & Scarred 07. My Apocalypse 08. Sad But True 09.

    If fans picked what song they played then why isn't Frayed Ends of Sanity on there?
    They picked which one of two nights would make the main feature. With that said, I pray that The Frayed Ends Of Sanity and Eye Of The Beholder (just stop with the teasing already!) will be eventually played, and considering ...And Justice For All's 25th anniversary is next year, why shouldn't they?
    Butbutbut I already have a live version of Eye Of The Beholder :o Check out their Osaka concert from 1989, it's pretty kickass and free to download. Sadly, they only jammed Frayed Ends there =/
    Pretty sweet setlist - Shortest Straw is a nice surprise. I do wish they would play some of those Load and Reload songs in concert though, especially the deep tracks like Fixxer and The Outlaw Torn. That is the main problem with Metallica are only going to get 1 or 2 out-of-the-norm songs per concert. The rest are the staples.
    They'll play most of Load before even touching the non-single Reload songs...I cherish the fact that they played Carpe Diem Baby at their 30th anniversary show. I'd love to hear Fixxxer too, and I feel we would hear that before hearing Where The Wild Things Are or Attitude, if ever. Honestly what would make a cool concert is playing Reload in it's entirety...or a 2 night 90's thing. Load one night and Reload the next with a bunch of black album and garage inc songs as fillers. I'd travel across a few states to see that for sure.
    Wow, that's pretty awesome. I think my Cunning Stunts/S&M DVD's were $30+. They should make the new album 9.99 and actually sell it at places like Best Buy and Fye when it comes out, that way I don't have to waste 10 dollars of gas searching for an 18.99 CD when it comes out.
