Dolby announces first live music performance mixed in Dolby Atmos

Metallica: Through the Never, brings to life the roaring sounds of the heavy metal band with Dolby Atmos
Dolby Laboratories today announced that Metallica: Through the Never, a film based on the ground-breaking rock band, is the first live music performance mixed in Dolby Atmos. 

Metallica: Through the Never, created by award winning film maker Nimrod Antal, is a music driven feature film that combines a bold narrative and spectacular live-performance footage of one of the most popular and influential rock bands in history; producing a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience.

Featuring dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate stage ever built and imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography, combined with the life-like audio of Dolby Atmos, every beat, snare and vocal is heard in perfect clarity.
Andreas Spechtler, Regional Vice President, EMEA, Dolby Laboratories, said: “Hearing one of the world’s biggest rock bands in Dolby Atmos allows the fans to feel like they are actually in the stadium experiencing the real deal. It adds an entirely new dimension to cinema sound and showcases the full capabilities of Dolby Atmos in an innovative way with maximum impact.”

Ralph Dietrich, CEO of Ascot Elite Entertainment Group, who is at the forefront of independent film distribution and the distributor ofMetallica: Through the Never in Germany, said: “We are incredibly proud that Ascot Elite is releasing the very first concert to ever be mixed in Dolby Atmos. This marks an important milestone for both Ascot Elite and Dolby. We are always innovating and looking for ways to take the next step in film entertainment and Dolby Atmos provides the perfect opportunity.”

Scheduled for release in October 2013, Metallica: Through the Never tells the story of Trip, a young roadie working Metallica’s tour who is sent on an urgent mission during the band’s live sets. The seemingly simple assignment turns into a surreal adventure when Trip’s 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 tense stand-off between angry protesters and charging riot police. In the ensuing mayhem, a vicious masked horseman sets his murderous eye on Trip. He only has his wits to protect him as he attempts to deliver the band’s precious cargo and avoid becoming the horseman’s next victim.

Metallica: Through the Never is scheduled for release in a number of European markets throughout October and November will be screened in Dolby Atmos as follows:

·         Germany – October 3rd 2013 
o    Cinecitta Nürnberg
