Legacy Artists Like Metallica Moving to Indie Labels

If you have been following anything on this blog you have seen the trends; everything is slowly but surely going the way of independence. Now it seems like even Metallica is getting in on the act! According to a recent Hypebot article:

The famed rockers from Metallica are gearing up for their first non-major label release – a live concert DVD / Blu-ray entitled “Quebec Magnetic”, which will be released on the band’s very own label in North America (no name for the label just yet). The material for the video was filmed over two nights in 2009 during the band’s Death Magnetic tour, and is due out on December 10th. This marks yet another recent departure by a legacy artist from the major labels, as several others are beginning to fancy the independent route.

This is fantastic news for independent artists! Even though this is a DVD release it could be a foreshadowing of what Metallica will be doing with their future audio recordings. It shows that everything we have been saying is proving right. A gigantic band like Metallica getting in on the indie action which can only mean good things for this community. The only question now is will the next Lou Reed collaboration be released independently as well?
