"Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster", the highly acclaimed portrait of the epic band, will be released on DVD in North America on January 25, 2005. This 2-disc set offers an all-access pass to the tumultuous inner world of METALLICA and includes over seven hours of special features, including 40 unreleased scenes, two audio commentaries (by the band and by the filmmakers),highlights from film festivals and premieres (Sundance press conference with the band and Q & A with the filmmakers, METALLICA's hometown premiere at the San Francisco Film Festival, New York premiere),intimate interviews with METALLICA about the film, a music video and trailers.

"Trying to whittle down over 1600 hours of footage into a feature-length movie was an often heartbreaking task," said filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky. "We are thrilled that as part of the extensive special features on this 2-disc set, we were able to resurrect some of our favorite scenes that were so difficult to leave on the cutting room floor."
