'Metallica have launched a mysterious new countdown clock, which is set to expire on Thursday (Oct. 10) at 12PM ET.
The teaser timer has been posted at MetallicaXX.com, but no other details have emerged as to what this may pertain to. Naturally, the "XX" in the website URL will lead some to conclude that it has something to do with a 20th anniversary, but the group has already celebrated the only 20th anniversary within their catalog, having revisited the S&Mlive album, which famously merged Metallica's music with a full symphony orchestra, with two special San Francisco performances.' - via LOUDWIRE
