Metallica tries to get fans into stores with coffin offer

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Metallica is trying to get fans to buy the actual CD version of its upcoming Death Magnetic album (due in the Fall) by selling it in a package designed as a coffin. But wait, there's more. According to the band's Web site, the Death box set will also include "a CD with the demos of the songs, a DVD of even more 'making of the album' footage not seen on Mission: Metallica, a t-shirt only available in this box, a flag, guitar picks, and a fold out poster along with a collector's credit card embossed with a code to redeem a free download of a special European show happening in September (yes, details coming soon!)." They really, really don't want you to download this shit off the Internet. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
