Metallica To Release Every Music Video From '72 Seasons' In American Sign Language

Metallica have announced that in partnership with the Deaf Professional Arts Network (DPAN) and Amber G Productions, the band will release every music video from 72 Seasons in American Sign Language.

As the first sample, Metallica released the ASL version of the title track, “72 Seasons.” On April 25, all 11 remaining songs from the album will be released on video with lyrics and ASL.

Amber Galloway of AG Productions has been signing at many music festivals around the U.S., including Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. Her company specializes in the interpretation of concerts and music festivals and has been instrumental helping Metallica to be the first rock artists to create ASL video versions of an entire album using Deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing interpreters.

DPAN, The Deaf Professional Arts Network, is a nonprofit organization founded by deaf musician Sean Forbes and music producer Joel Martin to make music accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing community.
