"He just gets right the fuck in there. . . . Every drop of sweat, every molecule of saliva, every out-of-place nose hair, it all gets captured cuz he's just fucking there."—Lars Ulrich

Legendary music photographer Ross Halfin has documented Metallica for nearly 25 years, from their beginnings as a scrappy, furious garage band to their current status as the heaviest and most popular metal band in the world. The Ultimate Metallica collects the best of his amazing images, taken over the years with access granted exclusively to him as a friend to the band. These candid photographs-taken onstage, backstage, on and off tour-are supplemented by text from numerous people close to the band, including managers, engineers, roadies, and music writers, plus personal observations from the band members themselves. Including a foreword by Lars Ulrich, The Ultimate Metallica is a powerful and definitive collection of images and text, and a must-have for the band's fans around the world.

Ross Halfin has toured with and photographed many bands, including Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, KISS, The Clash, the Sex Pistols, and The Who. He lives in Surrey, England. Lars Ulrich is the drummer for and a founding member of Metallica. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
