It's been a busy couple of weeks in Metallica-land! Helping curate film festivals, our friends at the San Francisco Giants in the playoffs, announcing a show in Vegas next year, releasing three live recordings every week...we hope you have been able to keep up!
To make your lives a little easier, we thought we would highlight some of the newer items in our store. The Helsinki and Los Angeles CDs feature the first performance of "The Frayed Ends of Sanity" in its entirety and an acoustic performance of four cover songs, respectively, making them pretty special entries in our Live Metallica catalog! You can check out those and more killer shows in the Live Metallica CDs section under Multimedia.
Check out more tour-related gear this week -- The Four Horsemen T-Shirt and Phantom Lord T-Shirt are both based on tour favorites (and we actually have a few of the Phantom Lord 2013 Tour T-Shirt left), the By Request Frisbee is a new favorite, and there is plenty more for you to explore!

As Artists in Residence at the 37th Mill Valley Film Festival, we thought a movie-themed store was appropriate this week. Delve into our extensive film history with Through the Never, reissues of classics like Cliff 'Em All on Blackened Recordings, and more. Since the guys each get to show a film of their choice, we thought we'd feature band-member-specific merch as well (and hey, it could double as part of a Halloween costume in a couple of weeks)!
We also thought you might be interested in a very special Metallica show as part of our Live Metallica 2014 CD series. Metallica paid tribute to Ozzy Osbourne at the MusiCares MAP Fund Tribute Benefit with a special acoustic performance of four cover songs. All net proceeds from sales of this show will be donated to the MusiCares MAP Fund.
October 1st marked 16 years since the band wrapped up recording on the new cover songs for Garage Inc. Check out the This Week in Metallica section for some limited-time deals!

Fall is officially here, and with rain and a chill in the air around HQ, it's time to stock up for the season. Thermals? We've got 'em. Long Sleeve shirts? On it. Blankets, Hoodies, Scarves, Beanies? All of the above. And with our friends at the San Francisco Giants making a playoff push, be sure to check out our merch from Metallica Night in preparation for postseason baseball.
Oh, one last thing -- the Master of Puppets Holiday Sweater is back, and the last few Scary Holiday Sweaters are going fast. Take a look around and get ready for the season!

Halloween is fast approaching, and all of us at HQ wanted to give you guys a chance to get in some early shopping! The limited Jump in the Fire Mask is beckoning, and it wouldn't be Halloween without some Pushead-design t-shirts like the Doris Jersey!
Want to add a little realism to your band member costumes this year? The Riff Life Gloves (fingerless and full-fingered) are modeled after James' tattoos, the Lars Ulrich "Scary Guy" Signature Series Drum Sticks are available in both red and silver, Rob rocked the Ride the Lightning Anniv. Basketball Jersey all tour long, and Kirk is the master of horror in his book, Too Much Horror Business.

It is all accessories all the time this week at the Met Store -- there is something for everyone. The By Request Frisbee, newly acquired from tour, is the perfect end-of-summer item. Guys, lose the bulky wallet and snag the Doris Money Clip instead. Ladies, have you seen the M Logo and Ninja Star Expandable Charm Bracelet? We've conveniently bundled them as the Expandable Charm Bracelet (2-Pack) if you can't pick just one!
This is just the tip of the iceberg...take a look around and see what suits you! While you're at it, we are celebrating the 6th anniversary of Death Magnetic's release in This Week in Metallica. Check it out!
