Metallica have released a teaser video showcasing the book Back To The Front.
Matt Taylor’s publication celebrates the 30th anniversary of 1986 album Master Of Puppets and accompanying tour, which saw the group winning over new fans and suffering the tragic loss of bassist Cliff Burton in a bus accident in Sweden.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich says: “I just think this book goes to a different depth, to a different level of detail and a different level of anecdotes and storytelling. It’s the right project, at the right time, by the right person.”
Bassist Robert Trujillo adds: “What sets this book apart is Matt’s desire and his passion to really try to connect with the energy of Master Of Puppets.
“Just the photos alone and the archive is so deep and rich. Each page is a unique experience in itself.”
Metallica recently announced a tour of Latin America for later this year in support of upcoming 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct which is set for release on November 18 via their Blackened Records label.
