There seems to be absolutely no stopping Metallica. James Hetfield and co. may have spent eight years working on last year’s Hardwired…to Self Destruct, but it never stopped them from relentlessly touring the globe until the world was ready for another Metallica album. Now, the band are well and truly back with an album just as hard hitting as their early thrash classics, and they’re bringing their show out on the road to American stadiums for the first time in what seems to be forever. Earlier this week, alongside special guests Avenged Sevenfold, the quartet took to Detroit’s sold-out Comerica Park. Check out Christian Sarkine‘s shots below.
