What's this, you ask? Well, it's the cover artwork for Metallica's new album Death Magnetic.
According to frontman Jimbo Hetfield, the title "started out as kind of a tribute to people that have fallen in our business, like Layne Staley and a lot of the people that have died, basically — rock and roll martyrs of sorts. 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."
The album is due out in September and was produced by Metallica and Rick Rubin.
