Regardless of how many times you have seen Metallica live, or if you've never been fortunate enough to catch them in concert, if you're a fan of the band, you'll want to see 'Metallica Through The Never.' The film is a 92-minute opus that will likely leave theatergoers speechless when the end credits roll.
The year 2013 has proven to be a very, very busy one for Metallica. From playing sold-out shows all across the globe to just a few nights ago rocking a packed house at the intimate and legendary Apollo Theater in New York City, the legendary metal band is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. This is most obvious in the simple fact that within the same week, they are celebrating the release of their first ever full-length feature film and its official soundtrack. 'Metallica Through The Never' is a live disc fans need to add to their 'Tallica collection as soon as possible.
When it was announced that Metallica were to play the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City, fans had no idea what they would be in for. After all, the capacity of the Apollo is 1,506 and Metallica are used to playing shows of 50,000 and above. But with the help of SiriusXM, the band gave fans the show of a lifetime, with nonstop, in-your-face metal packaged in an unbelievably intimate setting at a historic venue.
In Metallica's first-ever full-length feature film, 'Metallica: Through The Never,' the legendary metal band performs an epic concert in the midst of apocalyptic destruction. With a massive stage set-up and a near-flawless set list, Metallica prove why they're one of the greatest bands in rock history, whether they're performing live or on the big screen.
On August 25, 1988, Metallica released their fourth studio album and the first since the death of bassist Cliff Burton. '...And Justice for All' featured Jason Newsted on bass and some of the most complex 'Tallica tunes to date. Twenty-five years later, songs like 'One' and 'Harvester of Sorrow' still prove to be fan-favorites at live shows.
On July 25, 1983, Metallica released their debut studio album, 'Kill 'Em All.' Initially, 'Kill 'Em All' was not commercially successful, but 30 years later it is regarded as one of the best thrash metal albums of all time. Its rawness and speed are unmatched, and guitarist Kirk Hammett gives us a better understanding of why it is such a gritty album.
June 5, 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Metallica's most controversial album, 'St. Anger.' The album is controversial not because of its lyrical content, but because of the direction the band went with it. Ringing snare drums, no guitar solos and filthy dirty guitar riffs all combine to make a 'Tallica album like none other.
Perhaps the thrashiest tune from Metallica's 2008 'Death Magnetic,' 'My Apocalypse' is a powerful, non-stop rocker that perfectly displays the band's roots from the '80s. Fast guitars, pummeling drums and in-your-face lyrics, 'My Apocalypse' is the epitome of everything Metallica stand for.
