Metallica Warns Their Fans to Beware of the Front Row

Band, Management, Record Company, Attorney and Fans Completely in the Dark on This Company and Their Announcement

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) -  Metallica today announced that all announcements made on their behalf via Writers Group Film Corp. and their subsidiary Front Row Networks, Inc. are false. Writers Group issued a press release on March 22, 2011 announcing "the acquisition of several hours of unique Metallica 3D & 2D concert video footage for distribution." 

"Metallica owns and controls its recorded performances and Creeping Death Music owns the vast majority of any music embodied in Metallica Recordings," said the band's attorney Peter Paterno. "Pretty much any legitimate business would have contacted us to see how Metallica felt about it. Maybe these guys just forgot."

"We are very happy to have bolstered the Writers Group Film Corp. stock price by using the Metallica name," quipped Marc Reiter from Metallica's management, Q Prime. "We only wish they would have told us sooner so we could have bought some."
