Metallica to launch their own pinball machine
The game will feature a strack of classic tracks including 'Creeping Death', 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' and 'Master Of Puppets'
According to Metal Hammer, the games machine was designed by Stern Pinball Inc and play will play stack of the metallers classic tracks including 'Creeping Death', 'For Whom The Bell Tolls', 'Master Of Puppets', 'Fuel', 'Battery', 'Sad But True', 'Enter Sandman' and others.
Singer and guitarist James Hetfield has revealed a sneak preview of the machine in a video which you can watch below. The machine is likely to make an appearance at the band's second annual music festival this summer - Orion Music + More - which will take place in Detroit on June 8 and 9.
Red Hot Chili peppers, Foals and Deftones have already been lined up for the bash alongside Death Grips, Japandroids, Rise Against, Dropkick Murpys and The Joy Formidable. Last year's inaugral event, which took place Atlantic City in New Jersey last June, saw Metallica headlining both nights of the festival, performing 1984's 'Ride The Lightning' and 1991's 'Metallica' in full. Other bands on the bill included Arctic Monkeys, Best Coast and Modest Mouse.
Metallica are currently working on a new album. They plan to release the follow-up to their last album, 2008's 'Death Magnetic', in 2014. Talking about the recording process, Ulrich revealed in a recent interview: "The stuff that we were banging out yesterday, it felt heavy, it felt energetic, it was loud, it was fast, it was rocking, it was crazy… The snare drum was on there and there were guitar solos, in case anybody was wondering.''
