Heavy metal icons Metallica just got a new gig. They're the new faces of an Italian menswear brand, Brioni.

"We are beyond thrilled to have been invited to be the face of Italian luxury menswear powerhouse Brioni as they kick off their first creative campaign under the direction of newly appointed creative director, über cool style star Justin O’Shea," the band shared in a post on Metallica's blog.

The band modeled Bespoke Brioni suits and tuxedos as well as sunglasses from the brand's new eyewear collection for a new advertising campaign.

The black-and-white photos, which were inspired by Queen's " Bohemian Rhapsody," were shot last month in San Francisco by photographer Zackery Michael. You can check some of them out below.
