Stern Launches Metallica Flipper
Stern Pinball has begun shipping the new Metallica pinball game, the latest addition to the iconic Stern collection of rock ’n’ roll machines.
The game spotlights one of the world’s foremost rock bands, and Metallica’s notoriously fast tempos and aggressive musicianship sets the tone for an exciting player experience.
Players will be able to bang their heads –– and their flippers –– to 12 classic Metallica hits including Master of Puppets, One and Fade to Black. Other action-packed game features include an electric chair, snake, grave marker and unparalleled magnetic action.
“We are proud to release our newest music-themed game designed to capture the raw, rebellious nature of Metallica,” said company chairman and CEO Gary Stern.
Formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, Metallica became one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over. They have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991’s Metallica (commonly referred to as “The Black Album”), which is the best-selling album in the history of SoundScan’s tally of such things with a total of over 16 million albums in the United States alone.
Their latest album, Death Magnetic, was certified platinum just six weeks after it debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Album chart in October 2008. Death Magnetic charted at #1 in 32 countries. Metallica has also garnered numerous awards and accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.
The band recently celebrated its 30th anniversary with a week’s worth of fan club concerts at the Fillmore Theater in San Francisco, Calif. In 2012, they announced the launch of Orion Music + More, an annual two-day festival curated and headlined by the band.
This past summer, Metallica unveiled a brand new stage in Mexico City that featured iconic elements that spanned its 30-year career. They played eight shows to nearly 180,000 fans at the Sports Arena in Mexico City. Later that month the band performed four shows on the same stage in Canada, two in Edmonton and two in Vancouver, during which they shot their upcoming Nimród Antal-directed 3D feature film, Through The Never, which will be released this year.
