METALLICA is apparently teasing a deluxe version of the band’s self-titled album.

Earlier today, METALLICA shared a video of the band performing the song “Wherever I May Roam” during a San Diego concert in 1992. It was accompanied by the caption “‘And the road becomes my bride…’ — San Diego 1992” along with the hashtags “#fbf”, “#BlackAlbum2021” and “#ComingThisFall”. The Facebook and Instagram posts have since been edited to remove the “#ComingThisFall” hashtag, but the hashtag can still be found in the Facebook post’s edit history.

Back in 2017, METALLICA announced that it was preparing deluxe remastered versions of its “…And Justice For All” (1988) and “Metallica” (1991) albums and reached out to its hardcore fans for help to get content for the new editions. “…And Justice For All” has since been reissued for its 30th anniversary in 2018, and now the the self-titled LP, more commonly called “The Black Album,” is expected to get the same treatment.

METALLICA‘s self-titled LP in 2014 became the first album to sell 16 million copies since Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.

“Metallica” was already certified 16 times platinum on December 13, 2012 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) for shipments in excess of 16 million copies in the U.S.

The album in 2009 surpassed SHANIA TWAIN‘s 1997 record, “Come On Over”, as the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era.

The album was the first of four collaborations with producer Bob Rock, with whom the band clashed throughout the recording of the disc.

METALLICA performed “the black album” in its entirety at a number of European festivals in 2012.
