Metallica

Metallica were easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s and '90s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rock star games of metal musicians during the mid-'80s pop-metal renaissance. Metallica also expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions. The release of 1983's Kill 'Em All marked the beginning of the legitimization of heavy metal's underground, bringing new complexity and depth to thrash metal. With each album, the band's playing and writing improved; James Hetfield developed a signature rhythm playing that matched his growl, while lead guitarist Kirk Hammett became one of the most copied guitarists in metal. To complete the package, Lars Ulrich's thunderous (yet complex) drumming clicked in perfectly with Cliff Burton's innovative bass playing.

After releasing their masterpiece Master of Puppets in 1986, tragedy struck the band when their tour bus crashed while traveling in Sweden. Burton died in the accident. When the band decided to continue, Jason Newsted was chosen to replace Burton; two years later, the band released the conceptually ambitious ...And Justice for All, which hit the Top Ten without any radio play and very little support from MTV. But Metallica completely crossed over into the mainstream with 1991's Metallica, a self-titled effort that found the band trading in its long compositions for more concise song structures. Peppered with hits like "Wherever I May Roam" and "Enter Sandman," it resulted in a number one album that sold over seven million copies in the U.S. alone. To support the record, Metallica launched a long tour that kept the musicians on the road for nearly two years.

By the '90s, Metallica had changed the rules for all heavy metal bands; they were the leaders of the genre, respected not only by headbangers, but by mainstream record buyers and critics. No other heavy metal band has ever been able to pull off such a feat. However, the group lost a portion of its core audience with its long-awaited follow-up to Metallica, 1996's Load. The album moved the band toward alternative rock in terms of image -- the bandmembers cut their hair and had their picture taken by Anton Corbijn. Although the album was a hit upon its summer release, entering the charts at number one and selling three million copies within two months, certain members of the Metallica fan base complained about the shift in image, as well as the group's decision to headline the sixth Lollapalooza. Re-Load, which combined new material with songs left off the original Load record, appeared in 1997; despite poor reviews, it sold at a typically brisk pace and spun off several successful singles, including "Fuel" and "The Memory Remains." Garage Inc., a double-disc collection of B-sides, rarities, and newly recorded covers, followed in 1998. Metallica's take on Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" helped maintain their presence in the charts, and the band continued its flood of product with 1999's S&M, which documented a live concert with the San Francisco Symphony. It debuted at number two, reconfirming the group's immense popularity.

Metallica spent most of 2000 embroiled in controversy by spearheading a legal assault against Napster, a file-sharing service that allowed users to download music files from each other's computers. Aggressively targeting copyright infringement of their own material, Metallica notoriously had over 300,000 users kicked off the service, creating a widespread debate over the availability of digital music that raged for most of the year. In January 2001, bassist Jason Newsted announced his amicable departure from the band. Shortly after the band appeared at the ESPN Awards in April of the same year, Hetfield, Hammett, and Ulrich entered the recording studio to begin work on their next album, with producer Bob Rock lined up to handle bass duties for the sessions (meanwhile, rumors swirled of former Ozzy Osbourne/Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez being considered for the vacated position). In July, Metallica surprisingly dropped their lawsuit against Napster, perhaps sensing that their controversial stance did more harm than good to their "band of the people" image. That same summer, the band's recording sessions (and all other band-related matters) were put on hold as Hetfield entered an undisclosed rehab facility for alcoholism and other addictions. He completed treatment and rejoined Metallica as they headed back into the studio in 2002 to record St. Anger, which was released in mid-2003.

The recording of St. Anger was capped with the search for a permanent replacement for Newsted. After a long audition process, former Ozzy Osbourne/Suicidal Tendencies bass player Robert Trujillo was selected and joined Metallica for their 2003-2004 world tour. The growing pains that the band experienced during the recording of St. Anger were captured in the celebrated documentary Some Kind of Monster, which saw theatrical release in 2004. Four years later, the band returned with Death Magnetic, an energized album that returned the band to its early-'80s roots. Former Slayer producer Rick Rubin helmed the album, having replaced the band's longtime producer Bob Rock, while Kirk Hammett (who was forbidden to play guitar solos on St. Anger) peppered the record with metallic riffs and frenetic solos.

Death Magnetic spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard charts and the group supported it with an extensive international tour that included a festival gig with Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. Metallica closed out their Warner contract with Death Magnetic -- outtakes from the sessions appeared as the Beyond Magnetic EP in late 2011 -- and while they were exploring their options, they struck up a collaboration with Lou Reed, releasing the ambitious, arty Lulu in the fall of 2011. In 2012 Metallica launched their own label, Blackened, which would be distributed by Universal; then, the following year, they announced the release of their second motion picture, Through the Never, which combined spectacular concert footage of them blasting through gems from their back catalog with a surreal road-trip odyssey starring Dane DeHaan. The film and its accompanying soundtrack album were released in September 2013. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato, Rovi

Zach7999 I wholehearted l y agree

EXIT LIGHT

TAKE MY HAND

OFF TO NEVER NEVER LAND

*burns house down*
How would have dave mustaine wrote ride the lightning or master of puppets I mean he left the band in 83 ride the lightning came out in 84 and I mean master of puppets came out in 86 like let's be real Dave sucks and kirk is a better play er and better song writer I mean James hetfeild is the be
Rellena617 is completely wrong. James and Lars started the band in'81 with James as lead singer. Mustaine and Ron McGoveny joined shortly later. Mustaine was NEVER the lead singer. Mustaine only had influence on 4 songs on Kill em All and had influence on only 2 songs on Ride the Lightning, and that it was all he did before he parted form Metallica, good riddance.
Also Dread and a Fugitive Mind and Holier than Thou, and many others I'm sure. Not to mention Metallica had to hire a solo guitarist to play the final solo on Hit the Lights because both Kirk and James could not play it.
Sorry again you're all wrong. Check these songs and similarities , because they were originally written by Dave Mustaine:

Looking Down the Cross and Ride the Lightning,
Mechanix and The Four Horsemen,
In My Darkest Hour and Four Whom The Bell Tolls
Hanger 18 and The Call of Ktulu,
Dawn Patrol and The God That Failed
This Was My Life and Phantom Lord,
She-wolf and Disposable Heroes
FFF and Motorbreath, When and The Call of Ktulu,
Go to Hell and Enter Sandman
You got your facts wrong. DM wrote some of kill em all very little of ride the lightning and none of master of puppets. But I'm sure he had help from James,Lars,a n d cliff since he was stoned all the time
I was in hi school when I saw cliff play this jam.... that was the "Metallica" at their best
Megadeth is my favorite band and I still like tallica.
Funny how the bio leaves out the fact that Dave Mustaine was the original singer and wrote all of Kill Em All, and most of Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets.
Love Matallic
Weather you like metallica or not there's no denying their influence. They're my all time favorite band. I like every song.
Who gives a s**t, robert.?!
What is the song about when the lead singer got hit by fireworks
I like Metallica and Love Megadeth.
mahunt1522
Honestly, Nothing else matters is a boring song, in my opinion. Its way too slow for me. I do respect others opinions.
I adapt to the unknown
& the earth becomes my throne
T-Dawg, Blue and Haoh, Just get out out. You are nothing compared to Metallica and if you don't like the music then why are you all here?
In kill em all you can tell James voice was looking for the right tune. Megadeth sucks
The comment below me is so true. And people call them metal.... All s**t after And justice..
nothing else matters is for women
mahunt1522
Well my point was I'm glad to see Metallica is not retiring anytime soon. And that they finally are working on something. That gives me something to be excited about.
abelstrd
I'm guessing blue fatty f**k f*rt sucker is actually a fat f**k who sucks f*rts with blue balls. I probably be the same if I was like him.
I liked this band back when they were good. Lol, JK, they were never good.
The new album is suppose to be them going back to thrash roots, and if you"re a true Metallica fan you"ll know you can't judge them on a demo
I agree with luzdelcielo. ❤️������
Their older albums are the best!!!
mahunt1522
Making a new album. They already released the lords of Summer single. James doesn't sound the same.
