Death Magnetic is "a stunning, overdue return to the shock and rush of the band's speed-metal monuments, 1984's Ride The Lightning and 1986's Master Of Puppets," according to Rolling Stone.

According to BW&BK; sources, the album will be preceded by an eight-minute single which is being described as "a tour de force that features some of their fastest playing ever."

The record was produced by Rick Rubin (SLAYER, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) and mixed by Greg Fidelman.
