“We’ve been incredibly fortunate to travel to all corners of the planet, meet so many amazing people, and do things we once only dreamed of. And when you’ve been around for 40 years, you manage to collect a few things! Along the way, the four of us have hung on to many keepsakes, photographs, articles of clothing, sketches, and so much more, stashing these items away in attics, garages, and storage spaces. But no more as we’re excited to launch The Metallica Black Box! Debuting with The Black Album Exhibition, The Black Box will offer an ongoing deep dive into every era of our career from the early ’80s garage days up to today and beyond.

Years in the works, we are now officially “unboxing” our collections and pulling our favorite, most significant, and personally meaningful artifacts in collaboration with our friends at Inveniem and Definitive Authentic. Features available exclusively in the Black Box will range from the virtual to the physical – including weekly live-stream events to extremely limited signed memorabilia. In the weeks, months, and years ahead, The Black Box will venture progressively deeper into the vaults, the sounds, the visuals, the instruments, the culture, and beyond.

We’ll continue to add to The Black Album Exhibition with additional artifacts posted before the end of the year. Next year we’ll return with new exhibits, including a 40-year retrospective and a showcase of the incredible creations of the brilliant graphic artists we’ve worked with over the years. Grab a beverage and a snack and dive in deep to The Metallica Black Box!”
