Metallica announce new album details and pop a song on YouTube

Metallica - Hardwired... To Self DestructI’m one of those people who genuinely think that Metallica haven’t released anything worth listening to in twenty years. OK, so some songs have been passable but on the whole… meh.

That could be about to change based on the song “Hardwired” that the band just put up on YouTube. It’s edgy and thrashy, though drops into the “let’s swear a lot to sound grown-up” trap. I’ll give it a few more listens before I make up my mind. Scroll down to listen.

The album is entitled Hardwired…To Self-Destruct and will be out on November 18th. Expect two discs and 80+ minutes of new stuff. Track listing is as follows:

Disc One

  1. Hardwired
  2. Atlas, Rise!
  3. Now That We’re Dead
  4. Moth Into Flame
  5. Am I Savage?
  6. Halo On Fire

Disc Two

  1. Confusion
  2. Dream No More
  3. ManUNkind
  4. Here Comes Revenge
  5. Murder One
  6. Spit Out The Bone

Disc Three (Deluxe Edition Only)

  1. Lords Of Summer
  2. Riff Charge (Riff Origins)
  3. N.W.O.B.H.M. A.T.M. (Riff Origins)
  4. Tin Shot (Riff Origins)
  5. Plow (Riff Origins)

  7. RIP (Riff Origins)
  8. Lima (Riff Origins)

The “riff origins” are the basic riffs that built into the tracks on the album. Expect various editions such as CD, vinyl and download.

[…] I wasn’t that impressed with the last one, I personally feel this one is much better. But that’s just my opinion. Check out the video […]
