I’m very pleased to announce my new @metallica book - The Black Album in Black and White.
“By the time the songs and the recording were coming together, the confidence level was at an all-time high and we felt better than ever about who we were and how we viewed ourselves with regards to being photographed” Lars
Ross Halfin & Lars Ulrich, Moscow 1991.
Metallica: The Black Album in Black & White, published by @reelartpress is an official collaboration with Metallica and photographer Ross Halfin. Available to pre-order now.
An epic celebration of one of the best-selling albums of all time featuring classic and previously unpublished photographs. It includes introductions by Ross, James, Lars, Kirk, Jason and Robert. Ross 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.
The book and accompanying limited edition are published in conjunction with a definitive 30th Anniversary remaster of Metallica’s record-breaking fifth studio album – a/k/a The Black Album and The Metallica Blacklist, a groundbreaking compilation of 50+ contemporary artists - spanning a vast range of genres, cultures and continents - each contributing a unique interpretation of their favourite Black Album track @metallica
