METALLICA members Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo spoke to NME TV about how their music might have influenced artists in the EDM (electronic dance music) scene. Check out the chat below.

METALLICA‘s “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)”, the soundtrack companion to the forthcoming groundbreaking 3D feature film “Metallica Through The Never”, is likely to sell between 19,000 and 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 24 via the band’s own record label Blackened Recordings.

A two-disc CD set, “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)” highlights last year’s career-spanning concerts at Rexall Place in Edmonton and Rogers Arena in Vancouver, where the band filmed all performance footage featured in the film.

“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. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during METALLICA‘s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.

Picturehouse will release “Metallica Through The Never” in North America on September 27 exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4.

On September 17, METALLICA‘s new movie, “Metallica Through the Never”, had its first public screening at the Rafael Theatre in San Rafael, California as part of a preview for the Mill Valley Film Festival. The four members of METALLICA, alongside director Nimród Antal (“Predators”, “Kontroll”) and actor Dane DeHaan, were on hand to both introduce the film and answer questions from the audience after the film.

Official video footage of the question-and-answer session can be seen below.

In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, 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. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the METALLICA‘s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.

Picturehouse will release “Metallica Through The Never” in North America on September 27 exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D theaters, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4.

METALLICA reportedly spent $20 million of its own money to make the film, which will also play at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas several days before it opens in limited release on IMAX screens around the country. The film will then expand to more theaters on October 4.

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.
