METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT: 'The Sound & The Fury' Educational Book/CD Pack Due Next Week

Cherry Lane Music has set a March 9 release date for "The Sound And The Fury", the new educational book/CD pack from METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett.

In 1993, Guitar World introduced a column called "The Sound & the Fury", penned by METALLICA's master of metal guitar himself, Kirk Hammett. In his column, Kirk didn't just talk about his licks, riffs, warm-ups, and techniques — he taught them. He also answered questions on every imaginable topic sent in by readers, making the column a major hit that ran for years. This book combines all of Kirk's columns into one volume, with an accompanying CD of demos played by former GRIM REAPER guitarist Nick Bowcott.

Featured songs:

* ...And Justice For All
* Battery
* Creeping Death
* Damage, Inc.
* Enter Sandman
* For Whom The Bell Tolls
* Hero Of The Day
* The House Jack Built
* Human
* King Nothing
