Metallica Through The Never Thrashes Onto Blu-ray In January

Here’s one of those titles where I was just so busy in life at the time that I was regrettably not able to check out theatrically despite wanting to over the many positive reviews out there.  I do pride myself in the fact that I own the soundtrack, which in my opinion is pretty killer for a live concert.  So it looks like I am in luck!  While I can’t find any pre-order information online, I do have the below press release in my possession which states there will be multiple versions released of Through The Never on the magical day of January 28th…just in time for the Super Bowl, huh?  Check it out below!
