METALLICA is offering its own contribution to “ugly Christmas sweater,” a ubiquitous feature of the holiday season which began to sprout up in the last several decades.

“Ugly Christmas sweater” or “tacky Christmas sweater” parties have been a holiday staple for several years, but there have been very few places to actually buy these sweaters. That has since changed, according to Time magazine, which reports that vintage stores, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill are reaping the benefits of this craze, as are fast-fashion shops like H&M and high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.

The METALLICA “ugly Christmas sweater” will be available from the band’s official online store.

“To insure their debut album hits hard and leaves an everlasting impression on the world the band has enlisted some key forces in the Power Metal community to bring this release to life.

Today, humanity will feel Wolfbrigade’s wrath once again, as another track from the Swedish crust icons’ forthcoming LP “Damned” infects the world wide web. Courtesy of the diehards at Blow The Scene — who instinctively conducted a massive interview with the ‘Brigade back in January when the pack’s cooperation with Southern Lord was announced — now behold the opening track from “Damned.”

As loud as your system will allow, stream “Feed The Flames” right here. The LP’s closing track, “Peace Of Mind,” is also still streaming at the Southern Lord website.

The first of three Wolfbrigade albums to be released via Southern Lord, “Damned” is set for North American release on April 24th. The 35-minute album was recorded at renowned Gothenburg-based Studio Fredman by Frederik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) and shows the band at the finest and most devastating hour in its storied lineage.
