Metallica have become their own bosses.
They have formed their own record label called Blackened Records. Metallica now have ownership of all their master recordings.
Their first release under the Blackened Records name will be the "Quebec Magnetic" DVD, shot in Quebec City during their 2009 tour. That comes out a week from tomorrow.
