On August 30th METALLICA Staff invited some Fifth Members they know personally to sit down in the control room and listen to Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. It was the first time a group of people outside of the band’s inner circle had listened to the album. Afterward, they were asked their honest opinion about what they had just heard… some of them were brave enough to talk on camera.
Hardwired… To Self-Destruct will be released on November 18. Produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, this is band’s 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.”
