Metallica's self-titled fifth studio album released in 1991 became known by fans as the 'black album': the record turned Metallica into global megastars. Photographer Ross Halfin was with the band during the album sessions in North Hollywood and shot thousands of film rolls during the 300-date tour that followed. This epic celebration of one of the best-selling albums of all time features classic and previously unpublished photographs and introductions from Ross and the band members.
This title is an official collaboration with Metallica and photographer Ross Halfin. During the 300-date tour between 1991 and 1993, he intimately documented the hectic performance schedule, backstage, rehearsals, interviews, band meetings and travel, alongside unique portrait shots of the band.
