Metallica Hardwired... To Self-Destruct Album Cover - 300Having been holed up in the studio for 18 months, Metallica emerge with enough material for a juggernaut of a double-album which, promises drummer Lars Ulrich, sees the band “getting in your faces again – and all that comes with it”. “We’re obviously beyond psyched to share new tunes with all our friends out there,” he continues, adding that fans should be prepared to “strap yourselves in”.

The first taster of the new album, ‘Hardwired’, has been released today, and marks a stunning full-throttle return. It will also be made available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the album over at

Running to 12 tracks, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct will be released on CD, vinyl and digital formats, while a deluxe edition of the album – only available on CD and vinyl – will come with an exclusive bonus disc featuring a further 12 recordings.
