Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The making and continued influence of Metallica's commercial breakthrough (known simply as "the Black Album") is entertainingly recounted in this must for Metallica fanatics, especially those who are interested in the recording of one of hard rock's most sonically breathtaking albums. Drummer Lars Ulrich, singer James Hetfield, and producer Bob Rock take up the lion's share of the interviews, and their reminiscences a decade after the fact include many juicy tidbits (like Ulrich and Rock loathing each other by the time the recording was finished, or that the final mix was nearly ruined by a digital clicking sound on the master tape--luckily, a successful remastering was done). The Dolby 2.0 Stereo sound is appropriately pummeling, even if we are treated to mere excerpts from the songs, videos, and even some of the original demos. Classic Albums: Metallica adroitly summarizes a pivotal moment in hard rock history. --Kevin Filipski

Special Features

Another 45 minutes of interviews that didn't make it into the original program will, to many fans, be even more noteworthy. That classic, punishing drum sound is discussed, as are Hetfield's vocal problems. Even guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Jason Newsted, who left the group following the making of this documentary, chime in on a few of their experiences. --Kevin Filipski

4.0 out of 5 stars The making of a great album April 14 2004
Format:DVD
I actually got this dvd for my birthday, and i wasnt really sure if it would be good coz i'm not a huge fan of documenteries, but i gotta say i was not disappointed with it.
Although i would've liked to see maybe more of the video clips for the singles instead of just little clips from them it was interesting hearing them talk about songwriting and how they wrote the album etc.
It's also their 1st album with producer Bob Rock and he has some interesting things to say.
Some highlights are Kirk's solo on wherever i may roam, watching them at the mixing boards playing around with the sound and hearing all the seperate guitar parts, and all the little clips of their live shows. It also explains what inspired the S&M concert.
If you're a die-hard Metallica fan or interested in songwriting and good music, then i reccomend this dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metallica - Metallica Dec 26 2003
Format:DVD
For all you metallica fans out there who didnt get this yet i bet you wanna know whats written on the back of the box...so here it is:The story of the making of this remarkable album is told here via exclusive interviews,archive footage and performance,with contributions from preducer Bob Rock,band members James Hetfield,Lars Ulrich,Kirk Hammett and Jason Newsted. We revisit the original multi-tracks of the album,as well as listen to previously unheard demo recordings.

I guess this will help know more about what your buying...

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent DVD June 5 2003
By JET70
Format:DVD
I watched this at a friends and will probably eventually buy it but I have a few other Metallica videos I want to replace with DVD first.
First off, this DVD doesn't get ratings for the videos from the Black Album, it's a documentary...if you want music videos or sessions, buy A Year and A Half... There's no comparison between the two. ;) If it contained most of the same material, I think that would be a bigger waste of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but... June 3 2003
By Lili
Format:VHS Tape
This was a good documentary of Metallica about one of their best if not the best album they made "The Black Album" but if you had allready saw lots of documentary and know a lot about Metallica this video won't be as interesting to you, well I find it good but I allready knew a lot about what they were saying but if you like to know more about them, you are a huge fan of Metallica and would like to know how they made the Black Album well you would like this documentary!

2.0 out of 5 stars Replay factor zero May 9 2003
Format:DVD
For metallica fans it may be a source of a whole lot of new information but in the end when you have seen it once maybe twice there is nothing to go back to it for. Its basically a set of interviews with short clips of the five singles in the background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have for Metallica Fans April 1 2003
By Drew
Format:DVD
The interviews in this program feature the four members of Metallica, producer Bob Rock, assistant producer Randy Staub, and some short interviews with various people in the music industry regarding Metallica's 1991 release "Metallica", best known as "The Black Album". The album has been an amazing success comercially, selling over 10 million albums in the U.S. alone, and brought Metallica into the mainstream.
The main issue I have with this video is that Jason Newsted seems to be the only guy who is having fun making the interviews. Jason, as always, is very animated and warm, while everyone else looks tired, bored, and somewhat agitated. I love it when Lars Ulrich starts to ramble on and on, causing the other guys to turn away, scratch their faces, and basically ignore him. All toghether, the band members seem very distanced from each other, which is understandable considering that Jason was to leave the band soon after the 2001 Playboy article in which the guys stated that they were at each other's throats.
My favorite part is when they dissect songs in the mixing room, bringing to light the strange guitar and sound effects that get buried underneath the overdriven rhythm guitar. Clips of some early demos also get played, which is great and shows how the songs existed before they were shaped into the final product. This was the best part of the program for me, and I wish there were more material of them playing with the mixes and demos.
If you are a Metallica fan, you will really enjoy this DVD, and even though it 'recycles' material from "A Year and a Half", I would say that the program is about 10% recycled, 90% new stuff. Including the bonus material, there is over an hour and a half of great interviews and insights into the album that marked a major change in Metallica's music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit dull Nov. 30 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I bought this video expecting it to have the videos to all the Black Album singles, but nope, just a documentary on the album. It's still a good video however, some good coverage on all the songs, and plenty of footage of them in the studios. But like I said, it's just, kinda dull. It could've been a little more interesting, and I wish it could've included the videos to all the songs on there. So in the end, if you're a HUGE Metallica fan looking for a GOOD video, eh, you might not wanna try this.
