Metallica is touring in support of their tenth studio album, Death Magnetic, which was released globally in the fall. News about the album and tour has been flowing out of Metallica's camp via the band's official website (www.metallica.com) and a new site, missionmetallica.com, which offers users a unique, ground-breaking look-in on the making of the album with producer Rick Rubin via a treasure trove of exclusive content.

Death Magnetic is Metallica's first studio album since 2003's multi-platinum St. Anger, which hit No. 1 in 30 countries and has sold nearly six million copies worldwide. The album's lead single, "The Day That Never Comes", was an instant hit at Canadian Radio, rising to the Top 10 in one week. Formed in Los Angeles in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, Metallica has become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 100 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over. They have garnered numerous awards and accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards. In addition, their 1991 album, Metallica, which has sold 15 million copies in the United States, has been awarded the prestigious "Diamond Award" from the Recording Industry Association of America, given to those albums with U.S. sales of 10 million copies or more.
