Metallica announced today (July 29) that they will be releasing a two-disc soundtrack companion to their upcoming 3D film, Metallica: Through The Never, which will be available September 24 via both CD and digital download, and special edition vinyl later in the fall.
“Let's hear it for the old school soundtrack!" stated drummer Lars Ulrich regarding the late-blooming 33 1/3 and 45RPM vinyl editions in the official press release. “Not only are we beyond psyched about our movie coming your way shortly,” he continues, “but the fact that we get to share the music directly in all these formats is way f******’ cool."
Distributed through Metallica's own label, Blackened Recordings, the live soundtrack captures the metal lords’ 2012 sets at Edmonton’s Rexall Place and Vancouver’s Rogers Arena in Canada, where the band filmed all of the performance footage to be featured in Through the Never.
Directed by award-winning Hungarian-American filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll), the September 27 film combines dazzling 3D imagery, photography and pyrotechnics with spectacular footage of Metallica’s veteran rockers performing their most iconic songs on one of the most elaborate live-performance stages ever built.
