Metallica to Release a 10 Year Anniversary Edition of Their Film "Some Kind of Monster"

by Music-News.com Newsdesk

Metallica will be releasing a ten-year anniversary 2-disc Blu-Ray and DVD of their out of print, groundbreaking movie, METALLICA: Some Kind of Monster on November 24, 2104 on Blackened Recordings via Virgin/EMI.

Originally released on July 9, 2004, METALLICA: Some Kind of Monster follows the band through three of the most turbulent years in their over three-decade long career. It gives viewers an incredibly raw and intimate look into the lives and psyches of the members of one of the most successful rock bands in music history as they battle their way through addiction, domestic life, backlash from their fans, and near-total disintegration during the making of their St. Anger album.

The documentary, directed by the award-winning team of Joe Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky (Brother's Keeper, Paradise Lost 1-3), won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary Feature.

This ten-year anniversary release marks the first time METALLICA: Some Kind of Monster will be available digitally and via Video On Demand. The updated version will contain an additional bonus feature, Metallica: This Monster Lives, a 25 minute follow-up piece filmed at Toronto International Film Festival 2013 during the release of the band's second film, Metallica: Through the Never, which features interview footage with the band and Berlinger & Sinofsky that looks at the decade since the release of the documentary film.

In more Metallica news, on November 28th the band will be releasing a limited edition etched 12" vinyl single of Lords Of Summer. The A-side will feature the First Pass (studio) version as well as a previously unreleased live version recorded in Europe this summer at the Rock In Rome Sonisphere Festival. Side B will feature a laser etching of the Metallica 'M' logo.
