Metallica To Preview CD Online - A Top Story This Week

Metallica To Preview CD Online was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (antiMusic) Remember back a week or so ago when Lars gave an interview and said he has finally seen the light about the web? He really meant it and the fans will benefit from it. Blabbermouth has the story: Metallica's recently announced web site, MissionMetallica.com, where the band says it will offer fans a chance to "experience the [group's] new album before it's done," is scheduled to go "live" on May 12.

As previously reported, Metallicadrummer Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com that the band intends to explore "everything" in terms of selling its music once its current recording contract expires. But although the group's upcoming ninth studio album is its last with Warner Bros. Music, Ulrich said they would be hesitant to follow in the footsteps of U2 and MADONNA and sign a comprehensive "360 deal" with Live Nation.

Ulrich explained, "We've never sold ourselves that way. No disrespect. We want to be as free a player as possible. We've been observing Radiohead and Trent Reznor and in 27 years or however long it takes for the next record, we'll be looking forward to everything in terms of possibilities with the Internet." - more on this story
