Metallica Artist Snapshot:

Metallica deflated the pomposity of 1970s rock, while reinvigorating heavy metal with their fast, fierce, and surprisingly melodic sound. Pioneers of the thrash metal subgenre, vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich set down the foundation for the virtuoso playing of lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Cliff Burton. When Burton died in a tragic bus accident, the band grudgingly moved on, recruiting Jason Newsted and eventually launching the highly successful ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL tour. With a common-man image and no-frills approach, the band lent a hand in slaying '80s glam metal. By the '90s, Metallica's non-stop touring and landmark albums made them one of the biggest--and most respected--rock bands on the planet.

Product Notes

Called "the Black Album" by many (due to its monochrome cover), Metallica marks the group''s entrance into the mainstream, with shorter songs, simpler song structures, and slower tempos overall. That said, this is an excellent album, featuring some of the best songwriting Metallica has ever done. "Enter Sandman," "Wherever I May Roam," and "God That Failed," despite being slower and more groove-oriented than the band''s earlier work, feature the same heavy riffs and heavier rhythms that have always been a feature of Metallica''s music. The band goes introspective with "Unforgiven," and proves that they can write a ballad with "Nothing Else Matters," which succeeds better than one might expect. Overall, this is a high-energy album despite its laid-back approach, and is in many ways superior to the previous . . . And Justice for All, which was weakened by overly complicated song structures and mediocre production. -- Genevieve Williams
