Metallica's acclaimed documentary, "Some Kind Of Monster," has been nominated in the "Feature" category of the 20th annual International Documentary Association (IDA) Distinguished Documentary Achievement Awards. The movie, co-directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, will go up against 13 other films, including "Fahrenheit 9/11," "The Corporation," "Control Room," "Aileen: Life And Death Of A Serial Killer" and several more. The winners will be announced at the IDA Awards Benefit Gala on December 10th, at the Directors Guild of America Theatre in Hollywood.
Metallica frontman James Hetfield says that he has no regrets about the film, a candid look at the turbulent and near-disastrous making of their 2003 album, "St. Anger." "The movie is very, very open and very scary for us. There are times when I just want to take it all back. But I know it's good for us. The more we put our heart and our realness out there, the more that we'll connect with the world."

The band is currently on the final leg of their 2004 North American tour.
