METALLICA‘s “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)” two-disc CD, the soundtrack companion to the forthcoming groundbreaking 3D feature film “Metallica Through The Never”, will be released on the band’s own record label Blackened Recordings on September 24 and highlights last year’s career spanning sets at Rexall Place in Edmonton and Rogers Arena in Vancouver, where the band filmed all performance footage featured in the film.
The soundtrack is available for digital pre-order and both the CD and digital album will be available at all retailers. There will also be a vinyl edition of the soundtrack album available in both 33 1/3RPM and special limited numbered 45RPM versions later in the fall. The live version of “Master Of Puppets”, taken from “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)”, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.
“Let’s hear it for the old-school soundtrack!” said METALLICA‘s Lars Ulrich. “Not only are we beyond psyched about our movie coming your way shortly, but the fact that we get to share the music directly in all these formats is way fuckin’ cool.”
“Metallica Through The Never” stars METALLICA, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of METALLICA’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during METALLICA’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena.
The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Picturehouse will release in North America on September 27 exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4. “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)” track listing: Disc 1 01.
