Formed in 1981, Metallica are considered one of the biggest, most influential and successful heavy metal bands in history, particularly in the field of thrash metal along with their fellow peers Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth who are collectively referred to as the ‘Big Four of thrash’.
One of the best-selling bands of all time, Metallica has sold over 150 million albums worldwide and generated more than 15 billion streams while playing to millions of fans on all seven continents.
The band has received various awards and accolades which includes nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and an induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2009.
Metallica's catalogue of multi-platinum studio albums includes their legendary thrash albums ‘Kill 'Em All’, ‘Ride The Lightning’, ‘Master Of Puppets' and ‘… And Justice For All’ as well as their most famous eponymous traditional heavy metal LP also called the ‘Black Album’.
The band then took a hard rock approach on albums ‘Load’, ‘Reload’ and adopted an alternative metal style for their globally panned LP ‘St. Anger’. The band later returned to their more traditional heavy/thrash metal style in ‘Death Magnetic’ which was followed by ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’ and ‘72 Seasons’.
