Metallica Double Album Was Worth It Says James

(Classic Rock) Metallica frontman James Hetfield says the band didn't mind paying the extra 10 cents per copy it's cost them to make Hardwired… To Self-Destruct a double-disc release.

Despite consisting of just 12 tracks, the total running time clocked in beyond the maximum capacity of a single vinyl disc, and close to that of a CD. So the follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic will arrive on November 18 in twin format, with a deluxe edition featuring a third disc.

Hetfield tells Sixx Sense: "There's 12 songs, and they're not all three-and-a-half minutes like Hardwired was. There's some long stuff on there, and there's some short stuff and some medium stuff. Metallica gets diverse, and we love that.

"I think maximum is 75 or 80 minutes, and then the sound quality starts to suffer, on vinyl especially. I think CD-wise, there's a max on that too." He continues: "We want it to sound good - at the end of the day we've got a bunch of songs that we love.

"So that's what has to happen. For the extra dime it costs to make it a double, we think it's very worth it." Read more here.
