Metallica is giving us a peek at their new photo book, “Metallica: The Black Album In Black & White.”
The band has dropped a trailer for the book, which gives fans a look at the band’s early days in the 1990s with photos by veteran music photographer Ross Halfin. There are snaps of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, former bassist Jason Newsted, and current bassist Robert Trujillo before he officially joined the band.
“Ross Halfin was with the band during the album sessions at One on One Studios in North Hollywood and documented the 300-date tour that followed,” the synopsis reads. “The hectic performing schedule is mixed in with many unique portrait sessions and candid, backstage documentary-style photography, rehearsals, interviews, band meetings and travel. This official Metallica book features many classic and previously unpublished images.”
