Downloading Metallica's Next Release Will Be Rather Tricky

After more than 20 years of seeking and destroying, Metallica are releasing an authorized book of their conquests titled “So What! The Metallibook by Metallica,” which should be in stores by August.

The 272-page oversized book won’t be an authorized biography, it’ll be a comprehensive scrapbook featuring more than 1,000 photos, bandmembers’ drawings and roundtable discussions with Metallica. It will also include archival interviews from the band’s official fan club magazine, So What!

An introduction will be written by Metallica, who will also provide notes and commentary throughout.So What! editor and longtimeKerrang! magazine journalist Steffan Chirazi will edit the tome, which will be published by Broadway Books/Random House.

The group’s upcoming North American arena tour begins in early March with Godsmack opening.

Metallica have been nominated for a Best Metal Performance Grammy for the title track of their latest album, St. Anger. They’ll be up against Korn, Marilyn Manson, Stone Sour and Spineshank.
