Metallica offer you 40 seconds of new material

    Metallica are streaming four, 10 second clips of new material at their website, as part of what they’ve dubbed “A Little Taste of Death.” (The material I presumably from their upcoming album, Death Magnetic.) It’s quite a little taste, as you only get 40 seconds of low-quality streaming, which takes roughly 40 seconds to load. Metallica–if you want to make penance with all those fans you lost over the Napster kerfuffle, this is not the way to do it. [Idolator]
