METALLICA’S BEYOND MAGNETIC EP TO BE RELEASED ON 
SILVER VINYL FOR RECORD STORE DAY ON APRIL 21, 2012
March 2, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – Metallica has announced that its Beyond Magnetic
EP, will be released on silver vinyl on Record Store Day, Saturday,
April 21, 2012.  Fans can purchase the vinyl at indie record retailers
and at www.metallica.com
Originally released via all digital retailers on December 13th and on
CD worldwide on January 30th, the EP features four tracks recorded
during the sessions for 2008’s 2x-platinum Death Magnetic, the band’s fifth consecutive No. 1 album.
Said the members of Metallica of Beyond Magnetic: “During the Death Magnetic
album sessions in 2007 and 2008, we originally recorded 14 songs. When
it came time to pick the songs for the final album, we decided on 10
songs that you’ve all come to know over the last three years. Some of
you may have heard bits and pieces of those other songs on ‘Mission
Metallica’ (remember ‘Mission Metallica’?!) or heard rumors about them
during the recording process, and wondered, ‘What ever happened to those
other four songs???.’  We kept them in the vault and decided to pull
them for our 30th anniversary celebration last month, so here are the
four leftover tracks from the Death Magnetic sessions. They are
ROUGH mixes, unfinished to their original degree of mixing from March
’08. These four songs were released as gift to our closest fans, the
members of our Fan Club, to enjoy. Now they’re being made available to
you.”
Metallica
