The band reunited with Greg Fidelman for the new album. Greg had engineered and mixed "Death Magnetic," but for the new album he was recruited as the producer.

Drummer Lars Ulrich had this to say about the album and working with Fidelman, "Has it really been eight years? Doesn't feel like it! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

"We're obviously beyond psyched to share new tunes with all our friends out there. We've been rockin' along in the studio with Greg on and off for the last 18 months firing up the creative engines again. Putting new music out there, getting in your faces once again and all that comes with it is what we love to do more than anything else, so strap yourselves in ... INCOMING!"
