Hardwired…To Self-Destruct was released on November 18 on Metallica’s own Blackened Recordings record label and debuted at No. 1 around the world, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide in its first week. The album was produced by Greg Fidelman with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and is available in various configurations.

Praise for Hardwired…To Self-Destruct includes: The New York Times: “Metallica has embraced its adulthood, reclaiming the attack of its music while jettisoning the image of a hard-rock band as young, fast and out of control;” Rolling Stone: “Metallica’s ‘Hardwired’ shreds back to vintage eighties terror;” Decibel: “Metallica balances legacy, longevity, and longitude with Hardwired…To Self-Destruct;” Kerrang!: “This is Metallica galvanized, refreshed, refocused and rediscovering themselves. Best thing they’ve done since The Black album? Yep;” The Guardian: “Metallica have just made their finest record in 25 years;” NME: “Metallica remain both vital and innovative;” San Jose Mercury News: “Metallica has once again delivered an album that echoes and underscores the mood of millions;” and much more.
