Metallica have promised to donate more than $500,000 to NSW Rural Fire Service and Victoria's Country Fire Authority to fund the agencies' bushfire relief efforts in Australia.

The rock legends said they are totally overwhelmed by the news of the wildfires sweeping through millions of acres across Australia, with major impact in New South Wales and Victoria.

"The resulting destruction and devastating effects on all residents, animals, the environment and the incredible land in Australia is truly heartbreaking," the band said in a statement.

"Please join us and do whatever you can to assist as we, along with our foundation All Within My Hands, are pledging A$750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and to the Country Fire Authority in Victoria to aid in the relief efforts," Metallica added.

NSW RFS is the world's largest volunteer firefighting organization. CFA is a volunteer and community-based fire and emergency services organization, which helps to protect 3.3 million Victorians.
