Editors’ Notes

Some Kind of Monster, the film, documents the making of the album St. Anger and what turned out to be a crossroads in the band’s career, as bassist Jason Newsted was gone and producer Bob Rock handled the bass duties until Robert Trujillo was found and added to the touring lineup. “Some Kind of Monster,” the song, was issued as the “single” and appears here in its full eight-and-a-half-minute album version and as a four-minute edit. The six live tracks were recorded on June 11, 2003, in Paris and were also made available on the Unnamed Feeling EP. Most interesting here is that the band chose to forego any live recordings of songs from its recent releases, including St. Anger, for the tried-and-true anthems from the first three albums.

Customer Reviews

Good e.p

I like the new version of Some Kind Of Monster, but these live recordings are great! Idk how you can't dig it.. it isn't metallica from the 90's but its an evolved being.. i think.. whatever, hate on.. metallica will still continue

Terrible

Hetfield's voice is just awful on this album. I'd say I'm shocked that they'd release such garbage but they lost all my respect years ago.

I love the new version

the snare is fixed and the drums are quiter. it sounds like it would be off justice

Metallica were easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s and '90s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rock star games of metal musicians during the mid-'80s pop-metal renaissance. Metallica also expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions. The release of 1983's Kill 'Em All marked the beginning...
