In news that we’re shocked hadn’t happened already, Metallica now has an official podcast.

The series, simply titled The Metallica Podcast, begins with an eight-episode exploration of the metal legends’ legendary 1991 self-titled record, aka The Black Album. The first episode is set to premiere later this month, presumably to coincide with The Black Album‘s upcoming 30th anniversary on August 12.

Frontman James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist Kirk Hammett will all be taking part in the podcast.

Meanwhile, Metallica has also been prepping a 30th anniversary deluxe reissue of The Black Album, as well as the 53-track Metallica Blacklist tribute compilation. Both releases are due out September 10.
