“The older we are, the softer we get,” is what they say, although I have no idea who “they” really are. Thankfully, when it comes to Metallica in 2016, maybe they should say, “the older we are, the more we stay the same!” Innocent, driven by dreams, and full of thrashmanship as they unknowingly began a Hall of Fame career 35 years ago, the legendary Metallica has just unleashed a brand new album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” via Blackened Records (November 18th, 2016)!

The album takes you on a journey drawn from the deeply influential Metallica catalog, consisting of fragments of everything from “Ride the Lightning” and “Master of Puppets” to “And Justice For All,” combining the heavy groove facet of the storied “Black” album all the way to “Load and Reload!” Defined by heaviness with a touch of despair that dissolves as the band continually pushes the elements of Heavy Metal, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” is another epic moment within the growth of the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Famers, Metallica! Forever young, here’s to 35 more years!

Join us today as we celebrate the release of METALLICA’S new album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct!” We’ll be playing a different “Rocking Friday” choice cut at 20 minutes after the hour all day long (unless a UTFH repeat is airing) on!
