Metallica´s Death Magnetic Tops Album Chart for Third Week in a Row

Death Magnetic, the ninth studio album from multi-platinum

hard-rock band Metallica, is the best-selling album in the

country for the third week in a row. Its continued reign atop the Billboard

Top 200 album chart makes Metallica the only artist, aside from Jack

Johnson, to enjoy a third consecutive week at No. 1 this year. Death

Magnetic is also No. 1 on Billboard´s Hard Rock, Modern

Rock/Alternative and Rock album charts. Internationally, the album

racked up No. 1 chart positions in 32 countries including the U.K.,

Canada, and Australia.

Released by Warner Bros. Records in the United States and Canada and by

Universal Music for the rest of the world, on Friday, September 12th,

Death Magnetic debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums

Chart on at No. 1 two weeks ago, Metallica´s fifth consecutive studio

album to do so following 1991´s Metallica (known as The Black

Album), 1996´s Load, 1997´s ReLoad, and 2003´s St.

Anger. That No. 1 debut which occurred

despite the album being in stores for only three days rather than the

traditional seven has made Metallica the

only band in chart history to have five albums debut at No. 1. It breaks

the band´s tie with the Beatles, U2 and the Dave Matthews Band, all of

who have four No. 1 album debuts.

The first single from the album, "The Day That Never Comes," is

currently No. 1 on Mediabase´s Active Rock chart, as well as Top 5 on

BDS´s Modern Rock chart. This is the first time Metallica have ever

scored a Top 5 hit at Modern Rock radio in its career. Seven more tracks

from Death Magnetic have charted across three radio formats,

Alternative, Active Rock, and Rock a feat

rarely, if ever accomplished by a rock band/artist.

Reviews have praised Death Magnetic for its "compositions that

are nasty and complex" (New York Times), while Time

magazine says that the "songs fly by with the force of the world´s

angriest amusement-park ride, and when they set you down, often after

seven or eight dizzying but tuneful minutes, giddiness is the only

appropriate response." British metal bible Kerrang! wrote

that "Metallica once again sound like one of the most exciting bands in

the world" and have "managed to harness their talent and instinct into a

modern metal album that makes a mockery of the modern competition."

Tickets for Metallica´s first proper tour of the United States and

Canada in four years are currently on sale. The first leg of the tour

begins on October 21st and will cross North America through fall and

early winter before concluding on January 21st. Support bands are Down,

The Sword, Lamb of God, and Machine Head.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and

vocalist James Hetfield, Metallica has become one of the most

influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having

sold 100 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the

world over. They have garnered numerous awards and accolades, including

seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video

Music Awards.
