The album includes songs like "as “If Darkness Had a Son”, “Screaming Suicide” and the first single "“Lux Æterna”. " The 12-track 72 Seasons, produced by Greg Fidelman with Hetfield and Ulrich and measuring in at over 77 minutes, is Metallica's first full-length compilation of new material since 2016's Hardwired...To commit suicide.

Metallica was critically acclaimed and hailed as "a ringing success" by Classic Rock Magazine, Uncut announced that they had discovered "ageless redemption," and The Arts Desk sums it up nicely, noting simply that "Metallica continue to deliver."

The album is available in two formats: 2LP 140g black vinyl with limited edition versions, CD digital, and Dolby Atmos (streaming where accessible).
