NONE MORE BLACK!

The metal giants follow The Beatles in having their music spliced with the rapper's...

METALLICA have become the latest band to go under the musical knife alongside JAY-Z‘s ‘THE BLACK ALBUM’.

Following the recent – and controversial – success of Danger Mouse’s ‘The Grey Album’, which spliced together The Beatles‘ ‘The White Album’ and ‘The Black Album’, a DJ has put out a taster of the next possible instalment of the craze.

A number of websites are hosting a song from Metallica‘s eponymous 1991 LP – also dubbed ‘The Black Album’ – mixed with Jay-Z ‘s.

It is as-yet-unknown whether a full-album will follow.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Danger Mouse’s ‘Grey Album’ bootleg was downloaded over 100,000 times last Tuesday (February 24) – a rate that would have seen it go gold in a day.

The album, whose release has been blocked by EMI, was pushed by file-sharing networks last week – they claim that the cease and desist letter sent out by EMI amounts to censorship.
