After just announcing that they have won the right from Warner Music Group to take back ownership of all their master recordings, Metallica has also disclosed of their new record label, Blackend Recordings. This will of course award the iconic metal band control over their music and cut out on a significant amount of the coinciding politics.
It’s always been about control for us as a band,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “Forming Blackened Recordings is the ultimate in independence, giving us 100% control and putting us in the driver’s seat of our own creative destiny.
As for the initial release under their Blackend imprint, it will be a DVD drop-off, Quebec Magnetic, hitting shelves on December 10.
