Metalheads explore their inner ‘Monster’

Metallica docu loads in Gotham

NEW YORK — Metalheads gussied up for a look within at last week’s New York preem of Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky‘s docu, “Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.”

“I don’t think we were told that therapy is supposed to be private,” said lead singer, James Hetfield, about the doc’s unflinching look at Metallica’s group therapy sessions.

“I see double chins and receding hairlines,” joked Lars Ulrich at the High Bar after-bash.

Sinofsky credited therapist Phil Towle with having a positive influence on his own relationship with long-time collaborator Berlinger, noting so much of band’s therapy “rang true to what was going on in our lives.”

Added Sinofsky, “Phil Towle saved Metallica, and indirectly, us.”

Bandmates Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo were also on hand, along with IFC’s Jonathan Sehringand Eva Mendes.
