    Valley of Misery's that new, cool Metallica song that was supposed to appear on their new album, right?
    NO.
    Valley of Misery is a song by Holochaust, recorded in 1997 and circulated around the net with the (false) message that it was a Metallica song.

    My message? Please, please people - name your track correctly. There's no Valley of Misery by Metallica. It's a Holochaust song. Give the credit where it's due.
