METALLICA's 'Through The Never' Soundtrack Lands In U.S. Top 10
METALLICA‘s “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)”, the soundtrack companion to the groundbreaking 3D feature film “Metallica Through The Never”, sold around 25,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD 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 released “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.
