Metallica have officially released footage from 2012’s U.K. Download festival in June, including clips from the tuning room and a performance of “One,” which was the band's penultimate track from the set.
Metallica played “The Black Album” in its entirety at the headline show, over a 20-song set that opened with “Hit the Lights” and closed with “Seek and Destroy.”
Meanwhile frontman James Hetfield has partnered with Sutro Eyeware to create his own pair of signature JH Sutro sunglasses, available in black or tortoise.
According to the official Metallica website, the sunglasses feature “the signature Sutro 3Click Hinge and Zeiss optics.”
“James was very particular in what he was looking for and he just wasn’t finding it out there, so we sat down and after extensive prototyping we put his vision into this frame,” says designer Jeff Sand, according to Blabbermouth.
“[They’re] built to look faster than a speeding riff and to handle the life of a road dog like me,” Hetfield says.
A pair costs $219.99.
