When this tour is finished, Metallica will probably go into the 
studio to record new songs for the planned re-release of garage 
Days. It will contain all the songs from the 1987 EP as well as all
the other cover songs they have done. As a bonus we will get five
new covers.

Jason will do some bass work and vocals on the next Sepultura album
entitled "Against". You will hear him on the song "Hatred Inside"

The next single from "Re-Load" will be "Fuel". The release date is
the 16th of June, but you can already now pre-order it from CD-
Universe http://cdu2.cduniverse.com/asp/cdu_main.asp?frm=lk_semslem

Again Metallica released 3 different versions, to make us collectors
happy (Or to make more money :-/)

   Sad But True (live) 
   Nothing Else Matters (live) 

   Wherever I May Roam (live) 
   One (live) 

   Until It Sleeps (live) 
   Fuel (live) 
   Fuel (demo) 

==== SITE NEWS ====
We hope to do some new sections on the Encyclopedia Metallica
webpage soon. I'm updating it with news and stuff almost every
day, so be sure to have it bookmarked. My book is doing well.
Take a look at the information about this book on my page. You
can order it from me, or amazon.com, and it comes with a free
CD. http://home.sol.no/~shadland/fuel_and_fire.htm for more

Apocalyptica, the band who released the album "Four cellos plays
Metallica" some time ago have now released a new album. Last time
the album was full of Metallica covers played by cellos, and there 
are some Metallica tunes on the new one as well. This is a really 
interesting and cool band, playing heavy metal with cellos, and 
cellos only! "One", "Nothing else matter","For whom the bell tolls"
and "Fade to black" is here as well as a Pantera tune, one by Faith 
no more and two Sepultura songs. There is also some original tracks 
written by this Finish band and it is as good as the rest. It isn't
released in the US yet, but it probably will soon.
