You’ve seen the videos, now listen to the album. Metallica’s full-throttle 10th studio set, Hardwired…to Self-Destruct, has arrived. 

Metallica took a different approach for the release of the LP by releasing videos for each of its 12 tracks in the lead-up to today’s release proper.

The Hall of Fame inducted metal band’s double-disc set clocks in at just under 80 mins and was produced by Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed Metallica’s most recent studio album, 2008’s Death Magnetic.
