“All Hail Thrash”; Metallica’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” Debuts @ Number 1 Globally

The mighty Metallica has really been keeping the Metal Media on point with all the news and coolness related to their brand-new album “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” which was released only a couple of weeks ago. First, we had fiery singles being unveiled that led us to believe that something special was at hand and then in the days before the album’s release we saw videos for every single song in a massive streaming takeover. Whew. Metallica were not simply going to put this album out and hit the interview circuit. It was all about the domination and honestly, the new release kicks some serious ass and that makes me happy to share the latest press from their team that speaks to the successful reception of the new Thrashing Metal. Take a look down below and I will return with some brief thoughts.
