In conjunction with the 40th anniversary shows, Metallica has announced “The Metallica Takeover,” a guest-hosted station available through Amazon Music Unlimited, that features band members sharing stories from throughout their four decades together, interspersed with songs from throughout their discography.

This year Metallica also celebrated the 30th anniversary of The Black Album with a deluxe reissue and a 53-song tribute album featuring Phoebe Bridgers, Jason Isbell, St Vincent, Kamasi Washington, IDLES, Weezer, and more. You can pick up both, along with lots of other Metallica vinyl and merch, in the BV shop.
