Metallica is diving into their history in a new way thanks to their recently launched “Black Box” website.

In a statement from the band, they said, “We’ve been incredibly fortunate to travel to all corners of the planet, meet so many amazing people, and do things we once only dreamed of. And when you’ve been around for 40 years, you manage to collect a few things! Along the way, the four of us have hung on to many keepsakes, photographs, articles of clothing, sketches, and so much more, stashing these items away in attics, garages, and storage spaces. But no more as we’re excited to launch The Metallica Black Box!”

Metallica continued, “Debuting with ‘The Black Album Exhibition,’ The Black Box will offer an ongoing deep dive into every era of our career from the early ’80s garage days up to today and beyond. Years in the works, we are now officially “unboxing” our collections and pulling our favorite, most significant, and personally meaningful artifacts in collaboration with our friends at Inveniem and Definitive Authentic. Features available exclusively in the Black Box will range from the virtual to the physical—including weekly livestream events to extremely limited signed memorabilia.”

Currently in “The Black Box” are a number of items for sale, including photos, tour posters and commemorative plaques honoring “The Black Album” era of the band. Additionally, four livestream events highlighting tour performances from that era are currently available for pre-order and will be taking November 20, November 27, December 4 and December 11.
