(hennemusic) A new book on Metallica's self-titled 1991 record - known as The Black Album - by author David Masciotra will be published as part of Bloomsbury's 33 1/3 Series on September 24.

With more than 30 million copies sold worldwide - including 16 million in the States - "Metallica" delivered five singles including the smash "Enter Sandman", "The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters", "Wherever I May Roam" and "Sad But True."

Masciotra gives readers unprecedented insight into the story behind the iconic album through interviews with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted and producer Bob Rock.

"The book is a must read for Metallica, metal, and hard rock fans," says Masciotra, "as I will give up close and personal details, received personally from the band, into the making of The Black Album, and I will examine the importance of Metallica's music, along with the philosophical depth it possesses."

The Black Album continues to be the best-selling release of the US Nielsen SoundScan era, which started in 1991. Read more here.
