Metallica shirt featuring a raven on the front and the Death Magnetic coffin logo on the back of a black cotton shirt.
In January 2008, a statement was made by Stereo Warning that the album would be delayed until September 2008, but was quickly denied by Metallica's management since an album without a defined release date can not be "delayed".
The album, which was completed on August 10, 2008, was released on September 12, 2008 and issued in a variety of different packages.
On September 2, a French record store began selling copies of Death Magnetic, nearly two weeks ahead of its scheduled worldwide release date, which resulted in the album being made prematurely available on peer-to-peer clients.
This prompted the band's United Kingdom distributor, Vertigo Records, to officially release the album two days ahead of schedule, on September 10.
It is currently unconfirmed whether Metallica or Warner Bros. will be taking any action against the French retailer.
