Metallica’s concert film, Through the Never, is not your typical rock n roll flick.

Metallica have taken a lot of big risks in their career, and coming September 27, they’re going to take one of the biggest with Through the Never.

If you grew up back in the eighties, you probably remember that music wasn’t as diversified as it is today, and there were walls of division up everywhere.
