's soundtrack to their new 3D movie "Through the Never
" has just landed in the US top 10.
According to Billboard
, the soundtrack hit No. 9 with opening sales of 26,000 copies.
The dual-disc release includes performances from shows at Edmondtom and Vancouver in 2012 where the band's live footage from the film appeared.
"Between 'Some Kind of Monster' and this, those are two pretty cool bookends - two opposite ends of the spectrum. Every time we do this it's a hell of a ride,"
said drummer Lars Ulrich
at a recent Q&A session. "But you have to understand, getting a chance to do all these challenges and adventures really fuels us to go back into the studio and make hopefully a better album."
Meanwhile, the band are busy working towards a proper new album release. Their last album was "Death Magnetic
" in 2008, not including the ill-fated "Lulu
" with '60s icon Lou Reed
- though according to guitarist Kirk Hammett it was "some of the best stuff we've done in years."
