A living, breathing sonic blender of a podcast. Over eight episodes, we’ll celebrate the re-release of The Black Album (“Enter Sandman,” “Nothing Else Matters”), and the incredible band that made it. This is more than a “Making Of” look at the album. It’s the story of James, Lars, and Kirk — not just how the album got made, but why.
Side 8. Metallica. Rules.
Joining Lars, James, and Kirk is bassist Robert Trujillo, who climbed aboard Team Ugly full force. They step back to look at why and how The Black Album became one of the best-selling albums of all time – and how the remastered deluxe edition and the breadth of The Metallica Blacklist make it even more powerful today.
