METALLICA has officially set Friday, September 12 as the “worldwide” release date for its new album, “Death Magnetic”. Assuming that the band has yet to announce separate release dates for the different parts of the world (since physical CDs are virtually never released on the same day “worldwide”), the September 12 date in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (where albums are traditionally issued on Fridays) would indicate that the album would arrive in the U.S. on Tuesday, September 16, with most of continental Europe getting the CD one day earlier on September 15.
Tuesdays are when almost all CDs are issued in the U.S.
METALLICA’s new CD will be available to download for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on the same day the album arrives in stores.
The band is offering the record for sale in numerous configurations, ranging from a digital-only release to a deluxe “coffin box” that will come with a bonus CD, a DVD, a T-shirt, guitar picks and other goodies.
