Metallica music is now available on the music streaming service Spotify. Metallica fans can stream music from every single 'Tallica album including Kill 'Em All, Master of Puppets and And Justice for All.

The news was announced in a presser with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and Spotify execs, including Sean Parker, the founder of Napster, which was sued in 2000 by the band for allowing fans to download their music illegally.

"Metallica has always tried to be in control of the way we present our music to our fans, which is why we've waited to see the way these online retailers and streaming services operate and gauge the overall fan experience before deciding to include our music," said Ulrich while on stage.

"We now feel that Spotify not only has a proven track record, but is by far the best music streaming service. We are beyond psyched to unleash our music through their platform."

Both Ulrich and Parker discussed the 12-year feud between the band and Parker, and both seemed confident that the issues have been resolved.
