Metallica tries to get fans into stores with coffin offer

Categories: Music

Metallica is trying to get fans to buy the actual CD version of its upcoming Death Magnetic album (due in the Fall) by selling it in a package designed as a coffin. But wait, there's more. According to the band's Web site, the Death box set will also include "a CD with the demos of the songs, a DVD of even more 'making of the album' footage not seen on Mission: Metallica, 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 (yes, details coming soon!)." They really, really don't want you to download this shit off the Internet. -- Jennifer Maerz
