The following report is courtesy of Rolling Stone:

METALLICA didn’t perform an impromptu parking lot set as some had hoped they would Saturday during the first annual Record Store Day, yet cheers rang out, tears fell and metal reigned during an epic six-hour marathon of autograph-signing, chatting and pictures.

Ending a grubby, shivering, boozy three-day parking lot camp-out for 400 fans, Rasputin Music and DVDs in Mountain View, CA near San Jose opened its doors at 10:30 a.m. to give away hundreds of RSD commemorative posters, T-shirts, and CDs. Songs from Master Of Puppets, Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning played. Metallica’s founding members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and 2003 addition on bass Robert Trujillo arrived individually by black towncar at 2 p.m. to commune with the black-clad throng, assembled from as far away as Australia and Japan. The screaming, bird-flipping hordes chased each car into Rasputin’s loading area, and surrounded the strip-mall building, awaiting a chance to asked their idols about American tour dates (“September,” said Hetfield) and vocals on the new album (“I’m working on ‘em,” Hetfield promised). Others asked when they could hear the first new Metallica album in five years, produced by Rick Rubin (“This fall,” said Trujillo).

So basically, Metallica is going to give us updates for everything goin on behind the scenes. 11:30AM Hetfield layes 3 vox tracks, 3PM lunch: ate cheeseburger, 4PM 2 more vox tracks, 5:30PM lars take a dump while recording 1 drum track. Seriously, just finish the album... we all know you are recording a new one and we won't forget. Or maybe they are just trying to appeal to those with ADD this album?

I agree 100% with Post#3. If you're working on an album, surely you're gonna work on vocals sooner or later. Big deal. Give us some clips of Metallica in the studio, or better yet, some soundbites

AC/DC has already announced and finished their last album already. Granted, Metallica is supposed to be making masterpieces, so they SHOULD be taking more time, but here they are wasting time on a publicity stint. f***in jackoffs. Lamb of God finished their breakthrough album Ashes of The Wake only a year after their last album, WHILE TOURING. Why can't these old bastards just give us their work so we can hear what talent is left of them. Although, their ass-prick attitudes seem to say that they, once again, don't give a damn about making quality music; all they want is hype, fame, and more money from this album. Bastard monkey f***ers, the lot of em'.

Now Playing: Metallica- Kill em' All (hmmmm.... idea...)

^Correction: Metallica USED TO kick the sh** out of any band today. "OLD" Metallica, stills stands as the definitive standard for kick-ass Metal. New Metallica however...I think the quality of the music is self-evident, and their attitudes towards their fans and music in general doesn't help either. Maybe this new album will be a masterpiece, but maybe not, perhaps very likely not in fact. Besides, if we want to hate on them, we have every right to; as the consumers that this band is aimed at (Metal/rock fans), us being p***ed off at them is something they should take notice of.

Now Playing: nothing, my speakers are f***ing broken. Son of a b****.

The music is supposed to fill the gap between And Justice and the self-titled "Black Album".
