As expected, Metallica have announced there will be a soundtrack album for their upcoming 3D film release, Metallica Through The Never.
According to an official release on the band's Facebook page, the soundtrack album will be released digitally and as a 2CD set on September 24, with vinyl versions (including a deluxe 45-rpm set) expected later this fall.
The album, which will be released on the band's own label, Blackened Recordings, includes 15 tracks recorded live in Edmonton and Vancouver, Canada, in August 2012 while Metallica were filming the performance footage in the film. Video from these performances is featured in the movie, which stars Dane DeHann as a roadie who sets out to collect something for the band but ends up getting caught in a police riot.
The 2CD version of the album is available now for pre-order at Metallica.com. All pre-orders through the band's site will receive an exclusive Through the Never guitar pick.
After debuting in 3D at IMAX theaters in September, the movie will open in more — and more traditional — theaters October 4. Check out a trailer below.

Today, RevolverMag.com presents an exclusive "in the studio" video by Newsted. This time around, Jason Newsted discusses "...As The Crow Flies," a track off their new album, Heavy Metal Music, which will be released August 6.
"'...As The Crow Flies' will be one of the first singles from the album," Newsted says. "It's one of the ones we play live, and I think it comes off quite well. As far as the new recordings go, it's one of my favorite moments, if not my favorite moment on the record — the dual-lead guitar thing in the last 30 seconds of the song."
The video also includes a taste of the song and shows the band hard at work at the Chophouse.
You can pre-order Heavy Metal Music at iTunes now and get "Above All."
Chimaira have debuted their brand new video for "All That's Left Is Blood" online. The track can be found on the band's latest release, Crown of Phantoms, available tomorrow on iTunes.

Listen to the album below and tell us what you think in the comments below!
Cold Ground, the debut eight-song LP from Canada's Sparrows, is the follow-up to 2011's Goliath EP that found the band channeling their North-of-the-border contemporaries and friends Moneen, as well as like-minded acts such as Hot Water Music, Thrice, and others.
Of the new album, which was recorded at Getaway Studios by Jay Maas (Defeater, Polar Bear Club, Title Fight, etc.), guitarist and vocalist Dan Thomson says, "Cold Ground was a long time coming for us. We spent a good amount of time on the road over the last year and a half, and that really colored the way we approached writing this record. It was really important to try and capture the intensity of a live show in Cold Ground in each song. Of course, having Jay Maas in your corner is definitely going to help that."
