METALLICA UPDATE: Label demanded early Death Magnetic release
11th Sep 2008 | 14:19
Album hits shops early because of internet leak
Following this morning's excitement of buying Death Magnetic a day before release, it turns out one Zavvi music store began selling it yesterday. There is, however, no suggestion that HMV or Zavvi broke the sales embargo. Metallica's label Vertigo reportedly told them to go ahead and sell it early because the album had already leaked online.
Unsurprisingly, there's been no word on whether Glasvegas' storming chart prediction had anything to do with it.
