frontman James Hetfield
recently noted that the upcoming 3D film "Through the Never
" beats attending a live show.
reports, Hetfield described the concert footage as "better than going to a show"
during a chat with Multi Show
The singer/guitarist kicked off by branding the movie "as much in-your-face as possible and as loud as possible, like we like it."
He continued, saying, "The footage is I think unbelievable - better than going to a show. You're on stage with us, you're in the crowd, you're kind of everywhere. Things are crumbling - basically the setup is the best of all live performances over the last 30 years.
"So the crosses from 'Master of Puppets,' the electric chair from 'Ride the Lightning,' the statue of Justice - all of the things from all of the tours put into one show, along with the narrative."
James then discussed the storyline, saying its main point is based around the way "normal people can be heroes in their own lives in their own way."
Finally, the frontman focused on future plans and the highly-anticipated new album. "We're very excited to get in
[the studio] and start playing - we have so many ideas and it's torture having these things in my head,"
he said. "We need to get them out."
The matter of new album producer also remains unknown, as Hetfield couldn't confirm neither Rick Rubin
, Bob Rock
or anyone else as the one to handle the production duties. "We don't know. We will start writing and we'll see where it goes. It will tell us where it needs to go,"
