Metallica Pondering Self Publishing?

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Metallica has suggested that they may join the ranks of bands releasing their own material when their current label contract with Warner expires.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band's drummer Lars Ulrich suggested that they may be following in the footsteps of Trent Reznor's Nine In Nails or Radiohead and focusing more in using the internet for distribution.

"You know, this is our last record under contract with Warner, so we're looking at how we can embrace everything." Ulrich told RS "We've been observing Radiohead and Trent Reznor and in twenty-seven years or however long it takes for the next record, we'll be looking forward to everything in terms of possibilities with the Internet."

He was less sanguine about the possibility of a Live Nation/Metallica 360 deal though.

"We've never sold ourselves that way. No disrespect. We want to be as free a player as possible." Urlich added. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
