Metallica May Give Music To “Paradise Lost” Sequel

Metallica may contribute music to “Paradise Lost Revisited,” a sequel to the acclaimed documentary on the trial of three Arkansas teenagers convicted of killing three small boys in a so-called Satanic ritual.

The band allowed some of its music to be used in “Paradise Lost,” which was a first for the band. One of the convicted young men, Damian Echols, has a final state appeal in Jonesboro, Arkansas on June 9 and 10.

Filmmaker Joe Berlinger told MTV News that he has uncovered stunning new evidence of the innocence of the “West Memphis Three,” which will be included in the 90-minute film. “Paradise Lost Revisited” won’t turn up on HBO until late this year, but the original is now available on videocassette.
