(hennemusic) Metallica have will be including a bonus disc of covers and rarities in place of a "Riff Origins" set to the Deluxe Edition of their forthcoming album, "Hardwired…To Self Destruct."

"Guess what?!? It's DONE!," says the band. "We have put the finishing touches on our next album. As we were in the 11th hour of wrapping it up, it dawned on us that we have never shared with you, in any sort of cohesive 'official' manner, the extensive covers we have worked on since 'Death Magnetic'.

"While digging into the bonus options to complement the 12-song album with additional material, we realized that none of our versions of these songs from some of our favorite and most respected artists have been readily available on our very own Blackened Recordings. So with that said, we're here to tell you about some changes we've made to the deluxe versions of 'Hardwired...' in place of the previously announced 'Riff Origins'".

"The 2016 version of 'Lords Of Summer' from the studio in its full glory, as originally promised, is still included," they explain, "but now we've added the 'Ronnie Rising Medley', originally only available only on the 'Ronnie James Dio - This Is Your Life' tribute album, along with the Iron Maiden cover of 'Remember Tomorrow' rounded out by Deep Purple's 'When A Blind Man Cries'. And, by the way, all of these tracks have been recently remastered for optimum 2016 sound quality. Just for fun (and because there was room!) the special set we did at Rasputin's in Berkeley, California on Record Store Day 2016 to celebrate the reissues of 'Kill 'Em All' and 'Ride The Lightning' is here all remixed and mastered.

"Lastly we had such an amazing time being a part of the first weekend of events ever held at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis last month. It was an honor and a thrill to test out 'Hardwired' live there and we just had to commemorate the debut by including the recording from that night here."
