Hardwired...To Self-Destruct was released on November 18, 2016 on Metallica's own Blackened Recordings record label and debuted at No. 1 around the world, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide in its first week. The album was produced by Greg Fidelman with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and is available in various configurations at www.metallica.com.
Praise for Hardwired...To Self-Destruct includes: The New York Times: "Metallica has embraced its adulthood, reclaiming the attack of its music while jettisoning the image of a hard-rock band as young, fast and out of control;” Rolling Stone: "Metallica's “Hardwired” shreds back to vintage eighties terror;” Decibel: "Metallica balances legacy, longevity, and longitude with Hardwired...To Self-Destruct;" Kerrang!: "This is Metallica galvanized, refreshed, refocused and rediscovering themselves. Best thing they've done since The Black album? Yep;" The Guardian: "Metallica have just made their finest record in 25 years;" NME: "Metallica remain both vital and innovative;" San Jose Mercury News: "Metallica has once again delivered an album that echoes and underscores the mood of millions;" and much more.
Metallica formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield and has become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million albums worldwide while playing to millions of fans on literally all seven continents. They have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991's Metallica (commonly referred to as The Black Album), with sales of nearly 17 million copies in the United States alone, making it the best-selling album in the history of Soundscan. Metallica has also garnered numerous awards and accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009. In December 2013, Metallica made history when they performed a rare concert in Antarctica, becoming the first act to ever play all seven continents all within a year, and earning themselves a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Formed in Stavanger, Norway, Kvelertak are a chart-topping, award-winning band who have celebrated critical acclaim around the globe along with four Spellemann Awards (Norway’s Grammy equivalent). They have released three albums. Their latest LP, Nattesferd, garnered “Most Anticipated” accolades from Rolling Stone, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound leading up to its release in May of 2016, and quickly established itself as one of the most celebrated releases of the year. Stereogum picked Nattesferd as the #16 album on their “50 Best Albums Of 2016 So Far” recap stating, “…it’s an exhilarating invitation to a whole other world,” and Rolling Stone hailed the collection in their “Best Metal Records of 2016 So Far” asserting, “…Kvelertak have become heavy metal's most compelling crossover linchpin and lightning rod.”
