Metallica Launch First Episode Of ‘The Metallica Podcast’


The first episode of ‘The Metallica Podcast‘ has officially launched online and is can be heard here. The band are kicking off the series with an eight-part lookback at the making of their 16x multi-platinum 1991 self-titled album (aka “The Black Album“). The group said of their plans for the series in a previously issued statement:

‘We’ll talk about how the record was made, life on the road, all the incredible gigs we played during the three-year tour, including playing in Moscow for the first time and the thrill of headlining our hometown Day On The Green festival, and we’ll chat with many of the artists who contributed to the upcoming Metallica Blacklist album.

Just a few of the special guests include Jason Newsted, Bob Rock, Alice Cooper, Rob Halford, renowned Rolling Stone critic David Fricke, photographer Ross Halfin, manager Cliff Burnstein, and members of the studio and touring teams. Tune in for never-before-heard demo recordings, candid conversations, and much more.’

The Black Album” turned 30 this summer and will be celebrated with a deluxe box set on September 10th. A tribute album to it titled “The Metallica Blacklist” featuring covers performed by over 50 different artists will arrive alongside it on the same date.
