METALLICA To Release “Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)” In September

Monday, 29th July 2013

METALLICA has released details of the soundtrack album, Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture), which is the companion to the forthcoming 3D feature film Metallica Through The Never. A trailer for the film is available below. The two-disc CD set will be released on the band’s own record label Blackened Recordings on September 24 and recalls highlights from last year’s performances 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 tonight at midnight EST 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.

“Let’s hear it for the old-school soundtrack!” exclaims 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 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 the film North America on September 27 exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4.
