Back in the day was the Columbia Records Club. Later, Sub Pop started up its Singles Club. Now we have Metallica’s new vinyl subscription plan.
If you’re a ‘Tallica completist, you’ll want to sign up for this chance to collect rarities and demos from the back catalogue, each on limited-edition 7-inch singles. Welcome to The Metallica Vinyl Club.
This year will see four releases, all TBA but some hitherto unknown version of “Enter Sandman” seems to be one of them.

Introducing the Metallica Vinyl Club! It’s been super exciting to see the resurgence of vinyl and how much enjoyment we all get collecting, exploring and connecting with other fans mining for lost treasures. Those of us who love the look, feel and sonic warmth of vinyl are sorta in our little exclusive club, so with that in mind we thought it would be fun to start adding to our collections on a regular basis. Sign up at Metallica.com before Tuesday, March 31st to be part of the inaugural club!
How much? A year will cost US$49.99. That will get you the four records, a digital download card, and your own membership card. The band also promises, “additional collectibles,” although what that means is still TBD.
