METALLICA: New 'Some Kind Of Monster' Trailer Available

METALLICA released a 10th anniversary two-disc Blu-ray edition of the band's 2004 documentary, "Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster", on November 24. The new edition of the film is available digitally and via VOD for the first time. It also contains a new bonus feature, "Metallica: This Monster Lives", a 25-minute follow-up segment filmed at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival during the premiere of the band's second film, "Metallica Through The Never". The segment features interview footage with the band and "Some Kind Of Monster" co-directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky in which they all look back at the decade since the release of the film.

A new trailer for "Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster" can be seen below.

Originally released on July 9, 2004, "Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster" followed the band through the three most turbulent years of their long career, during which they battled through addiction, lineup changes, fan backlash, personal turmoil and the near-disintegration of the group during the making of their "St. Anger" album.

Asked by morning radio talk show host Elliot Segal in October if the raw and brutally honest film was still tough for him to watch, Hetfield said: "Yeah, it [is]. Hearing yourself, watching yourself, seeing the mirror back at what other people see. Especially where Joe and Bruce, the directors of this, they ended up being pretty much fly on the wall, so you really kind of forget the cameras are there and you're being yourself. And a lot of times I'm not really comfortable with myself and seeing myself in the situations, but, man, I learned a lot about what I don't like about me. Which was good — it was a good mirror. And I think everyone involved in that movie pretty much felt the same way about themselves."

As previously reported, METALLICA will release a limited 12-inch vinyl single of the new song "The Lords Of Summer" on Record Store Day Black Friday, November 28.

The single will feature the "first pass" studio version of the song as well as a live take recorded in Rome in July. This collectable vinyl will only be available through independent record stores and Metallica.com.

METALLICA is reportedly getting back to work this fall on its 10th studio album, due out sometime in 2015.
