Yet another week long extravaganza here at V.N.N. MusicK, this week will feature a three part series on the most shocking news of the entire week: Metallica has released a new album. The V.N.N. Takes On the RNC series was brought to a spectacularly fiery crash this week with the election of Donald Trump, but that series failed to deliver beyond three parts of an initially reported seven. In this week’s series, we’ll be discussing how 2016 wasn’t just the year of the Guns n’ Roses, but the other stars of 1992’s most riot inciting heavy metal tour as well. Part one will discuss the recent resurgence of the “Big 4” of thrash metal: Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, and of course the James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich experience. Part two will be a race for rock bottom and dead last. And part three will finally discuss the new Metallica album, Hardwired to Self-Destruct. In the meantime, Hardwired to Self-Destruct is available on all piracy networks and torrents, so piss off Lars Ulrich and download this album for free.
