Metallica yesterday revealed the details of Metallica Through The Never (Music from the Motion Picture), the soundtrack companion to the forthcoming groundbreaking 3D feature film, Metallica Through The Never. The two disc CD set will be released on Blackened Recordings/Universal Music in Australia on September 20th 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 tomorrow and both the CD and digital album will be available on 20th September 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 spring.
“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 3D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.
Hopscotch eOne will release Metallica Through the Never in Australia and New Zealand on October 10, 2013 in selected cinemas & IMAX® Theatres for one week only!
