METALLICA: 'Master Of Puppets' Performance Clip From 'Through The Never' Movie

September 20, 2013

Video footage of METALLICA performing its classic song "Master Of Puppets" — featuring various other clips from the band's movie "Metallica Through The Never" — can be seen below.

The performance footage for "Metallica Through the Never" was filmed in Edmonton and Vancouver, Canada. In addition, the film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9.

"It's all been a five-year journey to try to get to the Toronto Film Festival," METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich recently told HuffPost Canada. "And we figured with Canadian content we would have a better shot if we shot it here in Canada. So we've had this planned for a long time."

"We've always felt comfortable filming stuff up [in Canada]," METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett. "And obviously everyone knows that there are great crews here, good production deals to be had, that kind of stuff."

"Canadians have so much love for METALLICA," Hammett added. "It's very, very evident all across the country. I mean, every time we come here, we sell out instantly. We play the shows and the fans are always so great and the people are always so great. Canada is a very welcoming place for METALLICA."

METALLICA reportedly spent $20 million of its own money to make the film, which will also play at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas several days before it opens in limited release on IMAX screens around the country on September 27. The film will then expand to more theaters on October 4.

The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, will be out on September 24. The two-disc CD will come out on METALLICA's own label, Blackened Recordings, also in digital and vinyl formats.
