Metallica has posted a video clip of the band performing its classic track "Master Of Puppets" online, taken from the upcoming Quebec Magnetic Blu-ray/DVD due out next week. Arriving on Monday (December 10th), the disc merges together footage from two shows the band did in Quebec City in the fall of 2009 as part of its World Magnetic Tour. This will be the first release from Metallica's new Blackened Recordings label, which was officially launched last week.
- Fans were allowed to vote for the DVD's track listing, with 18 songs compiled for the concert and an additional eight bonus songs included on the disc.
- In conjunction with the launch of Blackened, Metallica announced last week that the band had regained control of all the masters of the band's entire catalog of audio and video recordings, as per its now-expired 1994 contract with the Warner Music Group.
- Metallica is also working on a 3D feature film for release next summer, as well as a new studio album that should surface in early 2014.
