New live version of “Master Of Puppets” from Metallica
New live version of “Master Of Puppets” from Metallica

Metallica has begun streaming a new live version of “Master Of Puppets” from its upcoming movie, Metallica Through The Never, at RollingStone.com. The song, along with many other Metallica classics performed live in the movie, will be available on the film’s official soundtrack album. The record is due out September 24th, while the movie opens in limited release on IMAX screens three days later on the 27th.

Bassist Robert Trujillo told us it was tough deciding which songs to include in the film and soundtrack: “It was difficult because some of the songs that we actually did perform and film are not actually in the theatrical cut. But I think that we covered a pretty good spectrum of the most popular songs. At the same time, the whole idea behind this film was really to do sort of a best-of, and that makes it difficult to pick a set list that everyone’s gonna be happy with. But at the end of the day, I think that we did it right.”

  • The IMAX 3D film will expand to more theaters on October 4th. It will have its world premiere on Monday, September 9th at the Toronto International Film Festival.
  • The two-disc CD soundtrack will come out on Metallica’s own label, Blackened Recordings. The soundtrack will also be available as a digital download and on long-playing vinyl, with limited-edition 45 rpm vinyl slated for release later this fall.
  • The film, a blend of concert movie and fictional narrative, stars Dane DeHaan as a member of Metallica’s road crew who is sent on a mysterious mission while the band performs at a sold-out arena and events outside grow more bizarre.
  • 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.
