MissionMetallica.com Goes Online

Metal giants Metallica have launched brand-new website
Mission Metallica - a groundbreaking look behind the making of their upcoming ninth studio album.

Rather than wait until the album´s scheduled September release date, fans can access a special-edition version of the album before it comes out.


The site also features insight from the band members themselves about their progress in the studio via fly-on-the-wall video footage, audio of riffs and excerpts of new songs, plus the chance to win tickets and meet-and-greet passes to Metallica´s live concert events this summer.

Platinum members get digital album downloads delivered at midnight on the release date, the physical album CD, plus complete downloads of classic live shows, ringtones of riffs and the chance to win a space at a special album listening party at the band´s Northern California headquarters.

Metallica began recording last year with producer Rick Rubin. The album, whose title will be announced on missionmetallica.com, will be released by Vertigo Records.
