Metallica To Release Physical Copy Of New EP
Metallica’s ‘Beyond Magnetic’ EP has been doing the digital rounds for a while now, but the band have revealed that they’ll be releasing the four-track opus in its entirety on CD as well! Nicely done.
Metallica recently digitally released a brand-new EP, ‘Beyond Magnetic‘, composed of tracks taken from the ‘Death Magnetic’ sessions in honour of their immense 30th Annviersary celebrations at the end of last year – and now the biggest metal band in the world will be releasing it on CD as well!
“We’re still pumped up after celebrating our 30th anniversary last month with Fan Club members from around the world and by sharing the stage with musicians we have admired all our lives,” say the be band in a statement on their website. “As you may have heard by now, part of the fun on those nights included playing unreleased tracks from the Death Magnetic sessions and after giving them to all Fan Club members for free, those songs have been available on iTunes and other at digital retailers for several weeks. We’ve been feeling all the love and positive vibes beyond our wildest expectations on the mp3 side, so we decided to go “old school” (!!) and also release those four songs on a CD.
“The Beyond Magnetic EP will be available world-wide at retail on January 30. As a refresher, these four songs are the rough mixes, unfinished to their original degree of mixing from March of 2008. Those of you still following along with finely tuned ears might recognize bits and pieces from the ‘Mission:Metallica’ videos posted during that summer.”
The tracklisting for the EP is as follows:
1. Hate Train (6:59)
2. Just A Bullet Away (7:11)
3. Hell And Back (6:57)
4. Rebel Of Babylon (8:02)
And, true to form, our Dom gave us a special video review of the EP, which you can check out below! Gravy.
