Metallica: Metallica Offers Help In Search For Missing Fan

In the search for Morgan Dana Harrington Metallica is attempting to help, the Virginia Tech college student last seen at a concert staged by the band this past Saturday (March 17). The Harrington 20 year old went missing just prior to the group’s taking the stage at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.
“We encourage anyone who has any information regarding Morgan's disappearance to please come forward,” says the band, in a new post on their website. “Additionally, if you or anyone you know shot video footage or took photos of the concert or audience, please check to see if there is anyone in your photos who might resemble Morgan.”
The post includes photos of Harrington and includes a physical description, as well as details regarding what the student was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
As reported by the Roanoke Times, Harrington drove to the concert with her roommate and another friend, and inexplicably left the venue just prior the show. Her cell phone and her purse were later found outside the stadium, and her car was still in the parking lot.
“We are deeply concerned …,” Metallica says. “Our thoughts are with Morgan and her family for her safe return.”

Live Metallica Goes “Live” in iPhone App Store

Metallica has just released Live Metallica [$0.99 - iTunes Link], their very own companion application to go along with their website. With it fans can purchase official recordings of each and every single live gig since 2004 and listen to the latest concert streaming for free.
Purchase the app, log into your existing account or register as a new user, and voila . . . every gig you’ve purchased is there under the “listen” tab, along with a free stream of the latest show on the tour! You can listen to samples of over 5,300 live songs from close to 300 shows, and if you hear something you like, purchase it through the app and it will automatically stream on your phone . . . of course you can download your purchase to your computer later at your leisure. Shows from the free “Vault” section of the site are always streaming, and you can check out photos and notes from almost every show going back to 2004 when the site launched.
Metallica claims to have gotten this idea back in the day when they saw fans bootlegging their shows and figured they would make it more convenient by doing the recording themselves and cashing in. So you have to pay $0.99 to gain access to yet more content you again will have to pay for to access, minus a few free streams and jpegs of the band.

Metallica to sell individual tracks via site

Since 2004, the rock band Metallica has been selling HQ downloads of all the band's concerts, in MP3 or FLAC, but only as a full album. Today, the band announced that they would begin offering individual MP3s for $0.99, on their site LiveMetallica. Full albums will remain at $9.95 for MP3 and $12.95 for FLAC versions. Metallica adds that there are 270 shows recently available, ranging from 1982 until today. Perhaps more notably, Lars Ulrich (drummer of the band) said that in the future, once their record label contract expires, the pair is open to offering their next album on the Internet, with a donation model, used to perfection by Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead. The move would be a stark contrast to the Metallica of 1999 which almost single handily took down the original P2P client Napster after Ulrich found hundreds of Metallica songs available through the client, for free.

single-song live download offering Metallica

Metallica has included single song downloads to the website. Instead of buying only entire concerts, fans can pick whatever individual songs they want from any concert they choose from. Every song that the band has recorded in concert since 2004, covering a span of 269 gigs, is available for 99 cents per MP3. Full shows are still $9.95 as MP3 files and $12.95 as higher quality FLAC files. Frontman James Hetfield told us about deciding to release individual songs: (Click to listen if you have a backstage pass) "Yeah, I think the song per song vs. album is kind of a long lost battle, I think. You know, people in the fast food world we live in want what they want, and want it now, and when they're done with it, they're done with it. So yeah, it's about time, and I think it's the right move." was launched in March 2004 and makes downloads available for purchase of every show the band has played since then, often within hours of the gig's finale. More than 300,000 downloads have been purchased at the site since its launch. The "Vault" section of the site offers free downloads of shows recorded before 2004. More shows will crop up at the site in upcoming weeks, since Metallica just launched a new North American tour last month. The band next plays in Tampa, Florida on October 3rd, with dates booked through mid-December.

A Top Story This Week Metallica Tour

Metallica Tour To Help Introduce Danish Band To American Fans was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (PR) Since the Danish metal quartet's formation in October, 2001, Volbeat has steadily risen to become one of the major attractions in the European scene. The band has released three albums and a live DVD overseas. This fall, North Americans will eventually have access to the complete catalog, with all three studio albums available (the DVD is planned for a later date).
Volbeat's recent title Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood (2009) is showing an increased presence, with exponential sales and airplay increases in markets across the continent. On October 27, Volbeat will see The Strength / The Sound / The Songs (2005) join the previously issued Rock The Rebel / Metal The Devil (2007) at retail stores across the U.S. and Canada.
The band will comeback to North America this fall as support for Metallica and Lamb of God in arenas across Canada and the U.S. Singer Michael Poulsen shared, "We are so thankful for this nice opportunity and are looking forward to sharing the stage with one of our biggest inspirations. It's such an honor, and it's also a great honor to play for the Metallica fans who are very dedicated. It will be a challenge, but we will do our best to give the Metallica fans a little piece of what we are about and what we do. We wanna thank the gentlemen in Metallica for giving Volbeat this chance. Thank You!" Hopefully we will be able to play a headliner show or two while we're in the US. We can't wait to look you all!"

Concert Attendance Record to Metallica

Metallica's two sold out shows at Montreal's Bell Centre last Saturday and Sunday set a record for the highest paid attendance ever at the venue, reports.Metallica also decided to be charitable with $21,462 from their two shows going to community services arranger Sun Youth, according to the Montreal Gazette."It's a nice gift," Sun Youth co-founder Sid Stevens told the newspaper. "People sometimes look at pairs of this nature in a derogatory or negative manner. But it's very interesting to look them donate in every city they visit."Stevens said Metallica have been giving part of the profits from their gigs on the Death Magnetic jaunt to a local charity at every tour stop. As for the follow-up to Death Magnetic, don't expect it in stores any time soon. Drummer Lars Ulrich told Dayton, Ohio radio station 103.9 The X that the pair will tour through the end of 2010, take a break and won't begin recording until early 2011. "You got another year on the road, and then you gotta, you know, suspire for a little while, then you gotta do it all over again," Ulrich told The Pulse Of Radio earlier this year.
"I'd love to put records out more often, but right now, I don't know what's gonna give, in between touring and having some chill time with the family and how long it takes to, you know, make these records."

Metallica have these dates scheduled:

Sept. 28 San Antonio, TX @ AT&T Center
Sept. 29 Dallas, TX @ American Airlines Center
Oct. 1 Fort Lauderdale, FL @ BankAtlantic Center

Metallica: Returns To Relevance

When the metal titans in Metallica play Dallas this week, they will do so in triumph, on the heels of their late 2008 release, Death Magnetic, an album many are calling the pair's best in 20 years.

Good thing, too. What with drummer Lars Ulrich's anti Napster testimony to Congress and subsequent lawsuits against file-sharing fans; the self-pitying documentary Some Kind of Monster; and 2003's St. Anger, with its trash-can drumming, 12-step lyrics and general sonic ugliness, the pair had some ground to make up.
While reminiscing about his band's current efforts, guitarist Kirk Hammett gets philosophical about Metallica's ups and downs with fans: "We are a band that means so many different things to so many different people, and everyone needs their version of Metallica to be the predominant one," he says. "That's something that we're aware of, and it's also something we're aware that you can't actually fight or try to change."
He's right: Some folks say Metallica lost it after 1990's Black Album. Others say the fall started after 1988's ...And Justice for All. Others draw the line even earlier, with 1986's Master of Puppets. But by blending the intricate thrash of the band's early years with the powerful rut of its underrated '90s discs (aided by new bassist Rob Trujillo, once of Suicidal Tendencies and Ozzy Osbourne's band), Death Magnetic has made Metallica an act to be worshiped again. Songs like "My Apocalypse," "All Nightmare Long" and "Cyanide" biff the listener with crushing riffs, fleet solos and fist-pumping choruses.
Hammett looks back at the recording sessions for the disc, helmed by career-resuscitator-to-the-stars Rick Rubin, with fondness and pride: "I think we wanted to be in the studio with just the four of us writing music, and then going in and working at our own pace, just hashing it out among ourselves," he says. He adds that Rubin kept Metallica focused on a very particularly concept: Making music "like we did... in the '80s."
It bears mentioning, of course, that Death Magnetic also marks the end of Metallica's major-label contract. So what does the future hold?
"At the expense of looking like some kind of fuckin' asshole, I'm not gonna answer that question," Hammett says with a laugh. "There might not even be a record industry five years from now. There might not even be a CD format anymore. Everything might go directly to our cell phones. Who fuckin' knows, man?"
One thing the guitarist does know for sure, though, is that his band is just one part of a major resurgence of American metal. Hammett is quick to praise New Orleans doom revivalists Down, Texas-based stoner groove monsters The Sword, and specifically, the band that will open for Metallica at the American Airlines Center, Virginia's politically aware crushers Lamb of God. "I was looking them the other night," Hammett says of Lamb of God, "and (I was) thinking, 'Fuck, man, it was my idea to get 'em on the bill, and I think we've got our fuckin' work cut out for us.'"
He actually shouldn't feel threatened, though.
Metallica is as good as it's been in two decades. Now, if only the band could just stop taking more than five years between albums...

Heavy rockers METALLICA have raised $200,000 (£133,333) to help their local community in California, by playing their first ever hometown concert.The pair played a sold out show at the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael earlier this month (11Sep09), with fans paying up to $350 (£233) per ticket. The money raised from the show has gone towards the Marin Rocks Museum Project, an interactive museum of Marin music history which includes educational programs for young people in music and the arts, which is set to open next summer (10). Drummer Lars Ulrich says, "We love Marin, and we don't get chances to make an imprint in our backyard as much as we'd like. And this just seemed like a perfect opportunity to get involved in something that had Marin stamped all over it." Museum publicist Stephanie Clarke adds, "There has been nothing but positive reaction to everything about the concert. People are very excited."

Metallica show at U.S. Bank Arena

Tuesday marked the second night of the current leg of Metallica’s North American tour. More important to the audience at U.S. Bank Arena was the fact that the band was back in town for the first time in years.

“Maybe Metallica should come to Cincinnati more than every five (darn) years,” shouted drummer Lars Ulrich, noting the obvious.
A whole lot of it’s-been-too-long love swirled through the arena for the two hour show. Sixteen thousand sets of fists pumped during the shoren shaking performance, and the band returned the favor afterwards mingling on the stage for 10 minutes, waving to fans, growling salutations into microphones, tossing guitar picks to general admission floor dwellers.
Though it’s the start of a new tour, there was no rust to be shaken off the Metallica metal machinery. If any of the fellas missed a note, it wasn’t apparent, which is pretty remarkable considering the speed and precision required for thrash such as encore selections “Whiplash” and “Seek and Destroy,” to name a couple. (There was also a thrashy cover of Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” thrown into the encore.) In fact, of all of their peers in rock who consistently sell out arenas worldwide year after year, nobody plays harder or louder.
Metallica’s 18-song set ranged from stuff off their 2008 return-to-original-form CD “Death Magnetic”; back to the classic thrash tunes that made them an ‘80s metal sensation; and rounded out with ‘90s crossover hits.Guitarist and lead singer James Hetfield sounded fine and looked fresh. The band performed in darkness during the opening tune, “That was Just Your Life,” with Hetfield’s face ducking in and out of spotlights as he moved between eight microphone stands positioned variously on the stage. The show was in-the-round, so the band did its best to give all sides of the arena a show, including Ulrich, whose drum riser spun in 90-degree increments. The rotating riser was one of several fancy production touches. Green laser beams fanned over the stage and across the ceiling. Flames shot out from behind the guitar amps, and grating on the deck of the stage emitted giant fireballs. Four casket-shaped trusses lowered from the rafters toward the band, setting an ominous visual tone during some classic “For Whom the Bell Tolls” riffage. That song, Metallica’s third of the evening, marked the first moment when the crowd went bananas. The old stuff always has ruled, according to diehards, and it always will. And though there were some nice riffs among “Death Magnetic” material like “Cyanide” and “The End of the Line,” songs like “One” and “Master of Puppets” were those with the power to make time stop.“Cincinnati, do you want heavy?” was Hetfield’s rhetorical question. “Metallica gives you heavy!” If Hetfield’s lead vocals made him the star of the show, the guy who added the most value was bassist Robert Trujillo, who looked like a cross between a high school burnout and an AND1 baller with his basketball jersey and his long, stringy hair. Trujillo’s finger-plucking approach brought a thunderous element to the music. It was as if he were inventing new low notes during “black album” songs “Sad But True,” “The Unforgiven” and “Enter Sandman,” providing a rumble that lent some eyeball rattling heaviosity to radio friendly fare.

“The Sweater Song” From Metallica

Last week Rolling Stone chatted up Rivers Cuomo about Weezer’s new album Raditude. Near the end we asked about the 15th anniversary of their debut single “Undone The Sweater Song,” which he now admits is “almost a complete rip off” of Metallica’s 1986 classic “Welcome Home (Sanitarium).”
” ‘The Sweater Song’ was the first Weezer song I ever wrote, back in 1991,” Cuomo says. “I was trying to write a Velvet Underground type song because I was super into them, and I came up with that guitar riff. I just picked up that acoustic guitar and the first thing I played was that condition. And it just feels so classic to me, true now when the band starts to play it, it just takes over the energy in the room and you’re just transported into the world of Weezer. It wasn’t until years after I wrote it that I finished it’s almost a complete rip off of ‘Sanitarium’ by Metallica. It just absolutely encapsulates Weezer to me you’re trying to be cool like Velvet Underground but your metal roots just pump through unconsciously.”
While on the topic of the old days, we also asked Cuomo about former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp who left the band after Pinkerton to form the Rentals and afterwards filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates over royalties. Five years ago Sharp and Cuomo covered the hatchet and played a few songs together at a college show. Sharp even wrote on his blog that there was talk of him rejoining the band as an additional guitarist. What happened?
“We were just beginning to feel it out, and it didn’t pan out for one reason or another,” says Cuomo. Might he work with Sharp again? “I don’t know if there’s a lot of room for it anymore, particularly now that I’ve got a two year old.” How about the possibility of him playing with Weezer again at some point in the future? “Seems unlikely,” says Cuomo. “But you never know.”

SAN RAFAEL: Metallica finally makes it to Marin
It's hard to believe, but they're saying the Metallica spectacle on Sept. 11 at Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium will be “the first time” the metal gods have ever performed in Marin County.
Legend has it that way back in the day, they even jammed at Volpi's in Petaluma before playing The Phoenix.
Evidently, all it took was a benefit for the Marin History Museum's “Marin Rocks” exhibition, celebrating the county's storied musical estate.
Tickets $100 $350 went on sale on Aug. 1 and quickly sold out. But hardcore fans are still looking for a way in the door. A scalper posted this on Craigslist last week: “Twelve hundred dollars or b/o.” How much is it worth to you?

Metallica new book on the way

A new biography of Metallica called All That Matters is scheduled to be adversted in October through Plexus Publishing, according to Written by Paul Stenning, the 320-page book is described on the author's MySpace page as "the first all-access biography to detail (Metallica's) entire history from late riser childhood through to the present day based on clannish interviews with the band members themselves and those closest to them." Among the Metallica initiate who have also participated in the book are original guitarist Lloyd Grant, founding bassist Ron McGovney, drummer Lars Ulrich's father Torben, early Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen, and many more.In other Metallica news, a man named Jonathan Diener who plays in a bridle called the Swellers has written at his blog that some test copies of a Swellers seven-inch single called "Welcome Back Riders" contains on its Beside a live Metallica sketch of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" instead of what is supposed to be a second Swellers song.The actual recording was taken from the 2006 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, in which Metallica inducted Sabbath and played a medley of their songs. Diener wrote, "We think they were making some kind of seven-inch with this unreleased cover and it was interchang with our song. Which means Metallica's test pressing might have a Swellers song on it...These test pressings will probably be worth a load of money. We have two and we are exactly keeping them. We're technically doing a split (single) with Metallica."Metallica has not announced plans to release the "Iron Man" cover in any format.

Metallica: Tommy Lee Returns to Reality TV

CBS' "Rock Star" search a new lead singer for INXS in Last summer, but this year's show takes a different twist as the found is for the lead singer for a brand-new band, SUPERNOVA, formed by drummer TOMMY LEE (MOTLEY CRÜE), bassist JASON NEWSTED (METALLICA) and guitarist GILBY CLARKE (GUNS N' ROSES).
"It is different from INXS, because here are three different guys from large bands," Tommy tells ET. "INXS was cool. They had a background of music. This is brand-new, but really exciting. I don't know what it is going to be like. We are writing music and recording, but we don't have a singer yet. Who knows what is going to happen? I like a surprise."

Update Given On Metallica Frontman James Hetfield's Condition

msnbc reports:
March 09, 2009
Organizers say 16,000 fans of the heavy metal group METALLICA had to leave the Stockholm Globe Arena without seeing their heroes perform after lead singer James Hetfield was taken to the hospital.
Spokeswoman Carolina Satterwall says Hetfield caught a stomach bug Sunday and suffered dehydration but left the hospital that evening. He has returned to the United States with the rest of the band.
The fans found out about the cancellation minutes before the concert was due to start, when the other members came onstage to deliver the news. Drummer Lars Ulrich said the band members were “truly, truly, truly sorry.” “Trust me, none of you guys wanna hear me, Rob or Kirk sing,” he added, referring to bassist Robert Trujillo and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett.
