About Metallica

Formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James
Hetfield, Metallica have become one of the most influential and
commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million
albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over. They
have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991's Metallica
(commonly referred to as "The Black Album"), which is the best selling
album in history of Soundscan scanning 16 million albums in the United
States alone. Their latest album, Death Magnetic, was certified
platinum just six weeks after it debuted atop the Billboard Top 200
Album chart in October 2008. Death Magnetic charted at #1 in 32
countries. Metallica have also garnered numerous awards and accolades,
including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple
MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame in 2009. Most recently the band spent 18 months touring and
developing the staging for their groundbreaking 3D feature film
Metallica Through The Never. Last summer, Metallica unveiled a brand
new stage in Mexico City that featured iconic elements that spanned
its 30-year career and is featured in the film. They played eight
shows to nearly 180,000 fans at the Sports Arena in Mexico City.
Starring Dane DeHaan, the film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the
most elaborate live-performance stage ever built, state-of-the-art 3D
photography captured on up to 24 cameras simultaneously and pioneering
and innovative sound mixing. Metallica Through The Never was the first
feature film to be released exclusively by IMAX in all of its theaters
in North America. The film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D
Blu-ray, digitally, and V.O.D. (Video On Demand) on January 28, 2014
through Blackened Recordings.
