Metallica to release ‘Through The Never’ soundtrack

Metallica today revealed the details of Metallica Through The Never (Music from the Motion Picture), the soundtrack companion to the forthcoming groundbreaking 3D feature film, Metallica Through The Never.

The two disc CD set will be released on the band’s own record label Blackened Recordings via Vertigo on September 23rd and highlights last year’s career spanning sets at Rexall Place in Edmonton and Rogers Arena in Vancouver, where the band filmed all performance footage featured in the film.

The soundtrack is available for digital pre-order tonight at midnight on iTunes, and both the CD and digital album will be available on September 23rd at all retailers. There will also be a vinyl edition of the album available in both 331/3 RPM and special limited numbered 45RPM versions later this year. See below for a complete track listing.

‘Let’s hear it for the old school soundtrack!’ said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. ‘Not only are we beyond psyched about our movie coming your way shortly, but the fact that we get to share the music directly in all these formats is way fuckin’ cool.’

Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history.

In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography.
