Metallica frontman James Hetfield is set to narrate a new documentary series about the hunting of brown bears.

The heavy metal rocker lends his voice to new show “The Hunt,” which charts the history of brown bears on the Alaskan island of Kodiak and examines the changing relationship between the animals and humans in the area.

The program, which will run for eight episodes, will premiere on June 8.
