Metallica’s first album in over five years ‘Death Magnetic’ is projected to do fairly well. The record is actually on track to take the number one spot on the US album charts. According to preliminary estimates, their new album will make it big by having sold 450,000 to 500,000 copies last week even though the album was only on sale for 3 days. Something that might be helping the band is the fact that some stores are bundling the album with Guitar Hero or some Metallica headphones. Ticketmaster is also offering ticket/album deal for buyers. It’s a great deal but I don’t think that it’s enough to put them back in the spotlight.
