St. Anger will be a 2-disc set (CD of music, DVD of rehearsals) packaged in a tri-fold digipack. Included in the digipack will be a 4-color, 28 page booklet with lyrics.
Also included will be a sneak peak at the Metallica Video game. Ready sometime in early 2005, the new video game is a third person vehicle combat game packed with fully customized vehicles and weaponry, endless terrain and desperate, murderous opponents – will include voice-overs from us, incidental background music and other exclusive content. We will also record an original song exclusively for the game along with a music video featuring elements from the interactive experience. You will also be able to see the trailer if you hit any of the Summer Sanitarium tour dates.
When you open your St. Anger digipack for the first time, make sure not to overlook the special insert for the Metallica Vault. What is that you ask? Well, the Metallica Vault is a cool new site that we've been working on for a while that you will be able to access with a special code that you get when you purchase St. Anger. Right now there are a bunch of live tracks that you can download, along with some exclusive photos. We're going to keep adding material to the vault from our own personal collections, as well as invite you guys to send us stuff to share with your fellow Metallica fans.
