Metallica's "Through the Never" 3D film officially made its global premiere yesterday night (September 9) at the 38th annual Toronto International Film Festival.
The band previously posted two new teaser clips, giving fans greater insight on the effort's overall vibe. Bassist Rob Trujillo and guitarist Kirk Hammett briefly discussed the film with Pulse of Radio, saying that the metal titans instantly had a vision of what they would like to produce.
"We felt that the missing ingredient was obvious to us and it was some sort of narrative," he said (via Blabbermouth). "There needed to be something that co-existed with the music, so it goes beyond just another concert performance.
"So we took it a step in a different direction, kind of taking a page from Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' or 'The Song Remains the Same' by Led Zeppelin, somehow creating our own version of that. And really it was trial and error," Rob concluded.
As Canada.com reports, Trujillo and Hammett once again confirmed hitting the studio in 2014. "We're going to make another album next year," they said, just to have Kirk explain further. "We're making ["Through the Never"] for a very good reason," he said. "Which is because we want to make it."
The clips show main character, Metallica roadie played by Dane DeHaan, running through the middle of a street riot as the four-piece charges through their set, specifically "Wherever I May Roam" and "Cyanide" off "Death Magnetic." The fan reactions so far seem as positive as ever, so check out the clips and let us know what you think in the comments.
