Metallica‘s Death Magnetic album was released 10 years ago today (September 12th, 2008). It was the first Metallica album to feature bassist Robert Trujillo and the first in a decade not to be produced by Bob Rock. Who produced Death Magnetic?
Stumped? Here are a few hints.
He’s well known as a record executive as well as a producer.
He was known for producing hip-hop early in his career, but shifted into rock and metal after co-producing the first hit hip-hop/hard rock crossover single.
The first heavy metal album he produced was Reign in Blood by Slayer in 1986.
