METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Contributes 'Thunderous Drums' To 'Triple Frontier' Movie

METALLICA's Lars Ulrich has contributed some "thunderous drums" to the score of the newly released Netflix film "Triple Frontier". The movie, which was directed by J.C. Chandor ("Margin Call", "All Is Lost", "A Most Violent Year"), stars Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal as a group of five former special forces operatives who reunite to steal a drug lord's fortune.

Ulrich confirmed his involvement with the film in an Instagram post on Wednesday. He wrote: "Check out #TripleFrontier, which starts streaming on #Netflix today.

"Director JC Chandor, who I've admired for his previous films and gotten to know over the years, called me up and asked if I would contribute to the movie. The marching orders… Thunderous drums to back up the score in certain sequences. I'm in!! Had some fun for a coupla days in December laying down 'thunderous drums' on top of @dzasterpeace's brilliant existing stems of music and score … and it's turned out really fuckin' cool. So if you're in the mood for a clever, intelligent, suspenseful, well-cast action thriller with an unusual amount of smarts and depth for the genre, and the occasional 'thunderous drums', go find @TripleFrontier.. streaming on your device of choice via @Netflix and in select theaters now. Happy days!"

The official "Triple Frontier" synopsis reads: "A group of former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties, and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival."

"Triple Frontier" was originally written by Mark Boal, the journalist and Oscar-winning screenwriter behind Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker", "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Detroit".
