Metallica to be first rock band to make ASL videos for a full album | kgw.com
ASL interpreting has grown in visibility in recent years, with the interpreters for high-profile artists trending on social media.
Metallica has announced that every song on their new album, “72 Seasons,” will be getting an accompanying video featuring ASL, so that deaf and hard of hearing fans can enjoy the music as well.
The band announced the project on April 15, known as National American Sign Language Day. They said they were partnering with the Deaf Professional Arts Network, known as DPAN, as the first rock artists to create ASL videos for an entire album.
