Reel Art Press are pleased to announce the publication of Metallica: The Black Album in Black & White (19 October, 2021). This official book is an epic celebration of one of the best-selling albums of all time, featuring many previously unpublished photographs. It includes introductions by Ross Halfin, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted and Robert Trujillo. Metallica, the self-titled fifth studio album released in 1991, became known by fans as the Black Album. The landmark record turned Metallica into global megastars. To date it has sold in excess of thirty million copies worldwide. Photographer Ross Halfin was with the band during the album sessions at One on One studios in North Hollywood and shot thousands of film rolls during the 300-date tour that followed between 1991 and 1993. He intimately documented the hectic performing schedule, backstage, rehearsals, interviews, band meetings and travel, alongside unique portrait shots of the band.
