Metallica Share Detroit Performance Of 'Through The Never'

(hennemusic) Metallica is sharing video of a performance of its 1991 classic, "Through The Never", from a November 10 concert at Ford Field in Detroit, MI.

The tune originally appeared on the group's self-titled record - aka The Black Album - which delivered the band's commercial breakthrough upon its original release as their first to top the US charts while going on to sell 16 million copies in the country and more than 31 million worldwide.

Metallica also titled their 2013 film, "Through The Never"; the project tells the story of a band crew member named Trip (played by Dane DeHaan) who is sent out on a mission during the group's live set in front of a sold-out arena: to meet a disabled truck and retrieve a particular item. However, the routine task turns into a surreal odyssey when Trip's van is hit by another vehicle, and he subsequently finds himself up against a death-dealing horseman.

As Trip flees through desolate streets, he has only his wits to help him avoid the deadly horseman and deliver Metallica's cargo.

While the companion soundtrack album reached the US Top 10, the film - which was written and directed by Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) - essentially broke even against a $32 million budget.
