It’s the news that metal-heads have been waiting eons for waiting for: Metallica will return in November with a new album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.

Due out on November 18, the metal mavens’ long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s Death Magnetic is a double album boasting nearly 80 minutes of music. And if the first single Hardwire is anything to go by, Metallica’s 11th studio album – which renunites them with producer Greg Fidelman (Slayer, Slipknot) – promises to be a truly riff-tastic affair!
