With Australia about to explode with Metallica-fever in January, the band have announced that they would like an Australian to design the cover artwork of their next single "The Unnamed Feeling". This will be the third single from the band's latest album St Anger, released earlier this year.
Four finalists will be selected, with the winning front cover design being judged by Metallica themselves when they touch down in Australia mid-January.
One lucky winner will have their artwork fronting an "Australian only" single, which will feature exclusive live b-sides from Metallica's first show at the Big Day Out in Brisbane. The…
For the uninitiated, it could have been a little scary - 13,000 black-clad Metallica fans stalking through the gardens on the way to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl for their first glimpse of their metal heroes in six years. There was a strong police presence and, not surprisingly, the fences around the bowl had been reinforced.
Carpet color = white. Attendees = many. Response = loud, happy, people are really into it! Directors = Joe & Bruce. Happy? Oh yes! Party afterwards? You betcha!! Update coming soon? Of course!

It's 12:30pm mountain time, and I've had no more than three hours sleep since the 5 I had two nights ago. Last night's premiere of 'Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster' was perfect...sold-out, great response, enthusiastic buzz afterwards, minimal bullshit, nice soiree afterwards with a few cocktails and much general enthusiasm about the entire project. Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky were…

Metallica schopte het tot grootste metalband ever en heeft in 20 jaar een rabiate fanbase uitgebouwd. Als er een optreden van Metallica in ons landje aangekondigd wordt, is dat alleen al voldoende om voor een kleine aardbeving te zorgen.
We've finally agreed to do an official book, which will be released via Broadway Books/Random House next August. It will be a 272 page collectible stuffed with high (and low) lights from the history of the Fan Club's So What! magazine with some reflective handwritten comments and additions from the band themselves and an assortment of other cool stuff. So What! has been published for ten years now and is sent to Fan Club members on a quarterly basis. So What! editor Steffan Chirazi, who has been reporting on the band for over 15 years, will be editing the book that promises to be filled with photos, handwritten notes, roundtable interviews, original fan artwork, letters, and so much more.
Here is the official press release . . .
Multi-platinum rock group Metallica to release first-ever official book
Illustrated history of the band set for summer 2004 publication
"It's good to be alive". James Hetfield entame désormais tous ses lives de la même réplique, comme pour se convaincre lui-même que Metallica est bien de retour. Lui qui a failli quitter le groupe dont il est le pionnier, lui qui faillit ne jamais revenir de désintox. Pas de doute, les quatre cavaliers de l'apocalypse sont bien vivants et ont la rage.
Metallica are on the cover of the upcoming Kerrang! Yearbook with an exclusive interview with our favorite drummer inside.
Kerrang! Yearbook is available at newstands in UK, Europe, and the US.
