    Cassettes are the new Mp3 at least for one day in April!

    In honor of Record Store Day on April 18, Metallica will release their 1982 demo tape No Life 'til Leather as a limited edition cassette vis their label Blackened Recordings.

    FUCK. YES.

    "We've been digging through the archives, gone to the original source material and re-mastered it to maximize the sound potential for 2015 without altering the original mixes in any way," said the band.

    'Tallica also noted, "Recorded with the first lineup of the band that appeared live as Metallica, No Life 'til Leather has never been commercially available until now. Look for expanded versions coming on CD, vinyl and a collector's set sometime this summer."

    All. Good. Things. For. Metallica. Fans.

    The seven-song demo tape featured the lineup of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Dave Mustaine and Ron McGovney.
