METALLICA‘s new film, “Metallica Through The Never”, opens exclusively at select IMAX theatres nationwide on September 27 and will expand into additional theatres and cities on October 4.

In the one-and-a-half-minute IMAX video short below, check out what it takes to get one of the biggest-selling acts in American history amped.

“We decided we needed to make this unique,” METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett told QMI Agency about the “Through The Never” movie. “So we came up with the concept of having a running narrative in the movie that weaves in and out of the concert footage. We liked that idea enough to tell our managers, ‘This is the type of movie we want to make.'”

“I think that METALLICA fans that are really into action films and movies with a lot of energy are going to be blown away,” METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told Revolver magazine. “This is a very unique film. I don’t know what people are going to think of it. I like it. But obviously I’m biased.”

The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, will be out on September 24. The two-disc CD will come out on METALLICA‘s own label, Blackened Recordings, also in digital and vinyl formats.

The concert sequences for the movie were shot in August 2012 at two shows in Vancouver, Canada and feature a stage containing elements of many of METALLICA‘s previous live productions from the past 30 years.

Deathbound Records has announced the signing of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada’s NOIRE. The band’s debut album, “Dark Reverence”, will be made available on October 1.

NOIRE, a progressive black metal band founded in 2012 by Andrew Lawes (vocals, guitar and piano) and Bob Fitzgerald (guitar), was joined by Derrick Kroll (drums) and Craig Peeples (bass) in 2012. The band has since embarked on a path to extoll the beauty of the lightless side of music.

Not afraid to wear its influences on their sleeves, NOIRE draws inspiration from bands such as DISSECTION, OPETH, ENSLAVED and EMPEROR, unleashing brooding twin-guitar harmonies, thunderous drum work, intelligent bass lines and snarling vocals to create an atmosphere that is uniquely their own.

Having opened for bands such as ABSU, NOIRE has convinced audiences that they are serious about their music and well poised to become one of the most interesting acts to emerge from the scene.

I'm not the type to say I told you so, but… A few weeks back, Slayer announced two shows, a month apart, in LA in NY along with Gojira and 4arm as their supporting acts. I speculated there is no way Slayer is flying out Gojira for two shows that are a month apart from …
