Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Metallica: Through The Never 3D
Metallica fans are in for a big treat when the long awaited
Metallica 3D movie, Through The Never opens in South Africa on 27 September.
Award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) creates a ground-breaking
3-D motion picture event, Metallica Through the Never. The music-driven feature
film combines a bold narrative and spectacular live-performance footage of one
of the most popular and influential rock bands in history to produce a bracing,
raw and visceral cinematic experience. Emerging young star Dane DeHaan (The
Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) portrays
Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission during Metallica’s roaring live
set in front of a sold-out arena audience. As the band performs many of their
most iconic songs for tens of thousands of devoted fans on a never-before-seen
stage created exclusively for the film, Trip is dispatched outside the arena to
meet a disabled delivery truck and recover a mysterious item being transported
to the show. But the seemingly simple assignment turns into a surreal adventure
when his car is hit by an out-of-control driver. Trip, dazed and bruised,
climbs out of his van only to find himself pitched into the middle of a tense
standoff between angry protesters and charging riot police. In the ensuing
mayhem, a vicious masked horseman sets his murderous eye on Trip while delivering
indiscriminate deathblows to rioters and cops alike. Fleeing through the
desolate, post-apocalyptic urban streetscape, Trip has only his wits to protect
him as he attempts to deliver the band’s precious cargo and avoid becoming the
horseman’s next victim. Featuring dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate
live-performance stage ever built and imagery drawn from the band’s
trailblazing iconography, the immersive 360-degree show creates a mind-bending,
ear-shattering mirror image of the destruction and chaos of Trip’s journey.
Metallica Through the Never’s state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using
up to 24 cameras simultaneously, engulfs audiences in one of the most
innovative and exciting cinematic experiences ever imagined.
