Metallica has revealed the cover art for “Death Magnetic,” the new album since 2003.
Higher resolution of the cover art can be found at Metallica’s own website.
As pictured above, the cover art depicts magnetic field surrounding a coffin-shaped grave. “Death Magnetic” cover art also marks the return of Metallica’s famous logo with slight alterations that was abandoned since “Load” in 1996, with the exception of “Garage Inc.” which was a facsimile of “Garage Days Re-Revisited” band logo.
As a side notes, some Blabbermouth readers posted funny comments about the cover art.
As previously confirmed, a special edition of “Death Magnetic” will be packaged in a coffin box. The Special Edition Box will include the full CD , a demo CD, “making of the album” DVD, a t-shirt only available in this box, a flag, guitar picks, and a fold out poster along with a collector’s credit card embossed with a code to redeem a free download of a special European show happening in September (details coming soon!). Special Edition contents are subject to change/finalize.
