Wel,l it seems Amazon.com have listed October 28, 2008 as the release date for Metallica's much anticipated new album, much sooner than was expected. Their has, however, been no corroboration from the band so it is still possibly an error on Amazon's behalf.
This will be the bands ninth album and last for Warner Brothers.
The band plans to explore all it's options for selling their music after their record contract expires, given Radiohead's great experience recently and the 360 deals that U2 and Madonna have recenty entered into.
