METAL UP YOUR PODCAST - All Things Metallica

Episode 181 - Some Kind Of Commentary (Pt. 1)

Episode Summary

Some Kind of Monster is a documentary film directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky about the making of Metallica's 8th studio album, St. Anger. The sessions began in the Presidio military bunkers after the sudden departure of long time bass player Jason Newsted and would soon come to a halt due to James Hetfield's stint in rehab for alcohol and other addictions. The documentary captures all of this in brutal honesty as the band struggles to regain their footing as one of the most powerful bands in rock and roll history. In part 1, we sit down to watch the documentary together for this first time in MUYP history. Enjoy!
