Closing in to the release of their upcoming LP, the trash metal legend have revealed the cover art of the new album that resembles the record's title.
Metallica's preparation to drop their new record "Death Magnetic" is getting to its final stage with the official release of their new album's cover. The cover art for the upcoming album was revealed by the rockers on July 17.
The image of the cover seems set to support the album's title as it shows the picture of a coffin surrounded by what looks to be a magnetic fields. The picture is placed on a white background with the Metallica logo alongside the LP's title being put right under the coffin.
The band's new record itself hasn't had an exact release date yet although it has been confirmed that it will be spawned in September. Moreover, at the same time as the album's release, the rockers have also confirmed that they will also make the songs from "Death Magnetic" available for download via music game "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock".
Meanwhile, recently at an interview the rock act vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield revealed the reason the band named their album "Death Magnetic" saying, "The title, to me, it's... It had something to do with... It started out as kind of a tribute to people that have fallen in our business. And then it kind of grew from there. Thinking about death some people are drawn towards it, and just like a magnet, some people are drawn towards it, [and] other people are afraid of it and push away."
