San Francisco thrashers Metallica have racked up another platinum album. Hardwired…To Self-Destruct has officially moved over a million units.
In one of the more clever press photos in recent memory, the quartet who infamously paired with Lady Gaga at the 2017 Grammy Awards, presented themselves with their platinum records backstage at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY.
Awards are typically distributed by record company personnel and Metallica owns their Blackened Records thus the tone of the photo.
Their live video for the single “Now That We’re Dead” is out and can be seen below.
After a rocky period, it’s good to see Metallica back on their game again. Time has allowed them to locate that sweet spot between commercial accessibility and extended riffing.
