'The Black Album' has been published by Metallica in Black & White in collaboration with photographer Ross Halfin.
Metallica have unveiled a new trailer for their photo book, The Black Album in Black & White.
The new book includes images of the band curating their hugely successful 1991 self-titled fifth studio album, which became known as "The Black Album".
Continuing Metallica’s ‘Black Album’ 30th anniversary celebrations, Metallica have published The Black Album in Black & White in collaboration with the photographer Ross Halfin this week.
The book showcases numerous classic and previously unpublished photographs of Metallica, including in-the-studio shots and images from the huge 300-date tour after the release of the LP between 1991 and 1993.
The book comprises introductions by Halfin, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted and Robert Trujillo - performed on part of the Metallica tour with his band Suicidal Tendencies.
Printed with a metallic silver jacket with block-foil lettering, The Black Album in Black & White is described as “an epic celebration of one of rock’s most legendary albums.”
“By the time the songs and the recording were coming together, the confidence level was at an all-time high and we felt better than ever about who we were and how we viewed ourselves with regards to being photographed," Ulrich remarked.
Metallica recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of ‘The Black Album’ by reissuing the record last month along with a special covers album: The Metallica Blacklist.
