Death Magnetic. For a few days a while back they slowly revealed the album title in a series of image extensions. Personally I thought when the letters spelt out "Deagnetic" I thought that was pretty good but hey. Hetfield recently gave an interview explaining the album title:
"Death Magnetic, at least the title, to me [...] 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, [and] other people are afraid of it and push away. And the concept that we're all gonna die sometimes is over-talked about and then a lot of times never talked about — no one wants to bring it up; it's the big white elephant in the living room. But we all have to deal with it at some point."
Also, the track list - in order - was posted on Metallica.com shortly after the cover art was revealed:
That Was Just Your Life
The End Of The Line Broken,
Beat & Scarred
The Day That Never Comes
All Nightmare Long
The Unforgiven III
The Judas Kiss

My ApocalypseThat looks grand and all till WOAH...... The Unforgiven III???????? Like The Unforgiven on the Black Album was awesome, then The Unforgiven II on Reload was awesome-er so does that mean by default that Part 3 will awesome-est?? That track title alone has be buzzin' over the new album. Below is a piece I got off Youtube which is like a short medley of all the samples currently available on the album.
