"Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

The album is 12 tracks and 77-minutes (so no more double albums from Metallica at the moment), and is available for pre-order here.

Alongside the new record is a full-scale Metallica tour, including Pantera's first appearances in the United States! They are:
