Metallica now available on Apple iTunes

iPod maker Apple Computers continue to make inroads into the digital music market. The company has just gained music from the Metallica band for their iTunes digital content store.

Metallica was incidentally one of the major music groups to not make their music available on Apple iTunes. Their songs are now available on sale on Apple iTunes in USA and Canada.

Interestingly, they have been selling their albums on the net through services like MSN Music but they avoided Apple iTunes considering they did not want to sell individual songs on the net.

Now, Apple iTunes is selling their first four albums named “Kill ‘Em All,” “Ride the Lightning,” “Master of Puppets” and “…And Justice for All”. This is further expanded to include previously unreleased live tracks recorded in Seattle in 1989.

Metallica said on this new development on their website: “We chose these four because, unlike the more recent releases, we were only capable of writing 8-9 songs for each of these albums.”
