Into the Black
From the phenomenal, breakout success of 1991’s Black Album to the band’s controversial reinvention with the Load/Reload albums; from bassist Jason Newstead’s shock departure to the group’s subsequent meltdown, as laid bare in the extraordinary documentary Some Kind of Monster; from the Lulu album with the late Lou Reed to their hugely expensive feature film debut, Through the Never, the second half of the Metallica story has been as eventful and controversial as it has triumphant.
With unique first-hand access and in vivid prose, Paul Brannigan and Ian Winwood thrillingly bring to life the second half of the Metallica story – exploring and illuminating the challenges and tensions of their superstar years. Unique, larger and louder than life, it is unarguably one of rock’s greatest stories.
