Metallica To Go Digi?


Posted April 28, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Inspired by Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, heavy metal overlords Metallica are said to be planning a digital release for its next album.

"You know, this is our last record under contract with Warner, so we're looking at how we can embrace everything," said Ulrich recently. "We've been observing Radiohead and Trent Reznor and in twenty-seven years or however long it takes for the next record, we'll be looking forward to everything in terms of possibilities with the Internet."

Though the band only has one record left on its Warner Music Group contract, Ulrich denied they are going to sign a 360-degree deal with Live Nation ala Madonna, instead opting for an indie, digi route (the band has always been "fiercely independent and controlling; sometimes to a fault,” he says).

Now, that's cyber-irony, eh?
