September 24, 2014 at 12:54 PM (PT)
METALLICA is set to release a 10-year anniversary two-disc Blu-Ray of their long out-of-print, documentary, "METALLICA; Some Kind Of Monster," on NOVEMBER 24th.
Originally released on JULY 9th, 2004, the film follows the band through three of the most turbulent years in their over three-decade long career, what critics dubbed a raw and intimate look into the lives and psyches of the members of the group as they battle their way through addiction, domestic life, backlash from their fans, and near-total disintegration during the making of their "St. Anger" album.
The documentary, directed by the award-winning team of JOE BERLINGER & BRUCE SINOFSKY ("Brother's Keeper," "Paradise Lost 1-3"), won the INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARD for Best Documentary Feature.
This release marks the first time the documentary will be available digitally and via Video On Demand. The updated version will contain an additional bonus feature, "METALLICA: This Monster Lives," a 25-minute follow-up piece filmed at the TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2013 during the release of the band's second film, "METALLICA: Through the Never," which features interview footage with the band and the directors that looks at the decade since the release of the documentary film.
On BLACK FRIDAY RECORD STORE DAY, NOVEMBER 28th, METALLICA will release a limited-edition 12-inch vinyl of "Lords Of Summer." Side A will feature the "First Pass" (studio) version of "Lords Of Summer" as well as a previously unreleased live version recorded at the ROCK IN ROME SONISPHERE FESTIVAL on JULY 1st. Side B will feature a laser etching of the METALLICA "M" logo. This collectible vinyl will only be available through independent retail and metallica.com.
