Metallica

Профиль:
Thrash Metal (Heavy Metal) band from Los Angeles, California (USA).

Metallica formed in 1981 by vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The duo first met through an ad in a Los Angeles-based music newspaper. At the time, Ulrich had little musical experience and no band but managed to secure a slot on an upcoming compilation record called “Metal Massacre”. Metallica’s contribution, “Hit The Lights”, featured Hetfield, Ulrich and lead guitarist Lloyd Grant. Afterwards, Ron McGovney became the band's bassist and Dave Mustaine joined the band as lead guitarist. This line-up would re-record "Hit The Lights" for subsequent re-pressings of "Metal Massacre" and would also issue several demos. In 1983, McGovney quit the group and was replaced by Cliff Burton, which also saw the band relocate to San Francisco. Metallica then traveled to New York after signing a deal with Megaforce Records. However, once in New York, the band fired Mustaine. It would mark the beginning of a long feud between Mustaine and Metallica, mostly fueled by remarks Mustaine would make to the press. Mustaine was replaced by Kirk Hammett of Exodus (6).

Metallica's debut LP, "Kill 'Em All", was released in 1983. It was followed in 1984 by "Ride The Lightning". This led to a major label deal with Elektra. In 1986, the band released "Master Of Puppets", which is considered by many to be one of the greatest heavy metal records of all time. In September of that year, while on tour in Sweden, the band was involved in a bus accident which took the life of Cliff Burton. Eventually, Jason Newsted (of Flotsam And Jetsam) was hired as the band's new bassist and he made his debut on 1987's "Garage Days Re-Revisited", an EP of cover tunes. The full-length "...And Justice For All" followed in 1988, featuring the track "One" which was chosen as the subject for their first promotional music video.

In 1990, Metallica hooked up with producer Bob Rock for a self-titled release that would become better known as "The Black Album", due to its cover art. Released in 1991, the black album would become one of the best-selling rock albums of all time, selling over 16 million copies in the US alone.

In 1996, the band experimented with Rock music style Alternative Rock, this could be heard on the album "Load". The following year, "Reload" appeared which had the similiar formula as ''Load''. The albums continued the band’s trend of more accessible music. In 1999, the group released an album and accompanying film called "S&M", which featured Metallica performing their songs with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.

In 2001, as the band was preparing to begin work on a new album, Newsted quit the group, citing personal and musical reasons. Work on the new album was further complicated when Hetfield entered rehab for alcohol abuse. The album, called "St. Anger", was eventually completed in 2003 with producer Bob Rock handling the bass. Upon its release, "St. Anger" drew mostly negative reviews. Following the recording, Robert Trujillo, formerly of Suicidal Tendencies, was hired as bassist. The making of the album was captured in the documentary “Some Kind Of Monster”.

In 2008, "Death Magnetic", produced by Rick Rubin, would surface and was hailed by many as Metallica's return to thrash metal. The following year, Metallica was inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Former bassist Jason Newsted was present and Cliff Burton's father appeared on Cliff's behalf. Dave Mustaine, who was not inducted, was invited to the ceremony by the band but declined to attend. In 2011, Metallica collaborated with Lou Reed on the album, “Lulu”, which was largely panned by critics and ignored by consumers.

Ever since METALLICA switched back to thrash metal (2003-present), the music sounds like some kind of recycling of the old thrash metal style (1983-1991):
- 8th album (2003), the production is some kind of underground sound, and the style is "... and justice for all" (4th album)
- 9th album (2008), the production is partly an approximation of the garage sound of "... and justice for all", and the style is also "... and justice for all" (4th album)
- 10th album (2016), the production is most similar to the sound of "The black album", and the style is "... and justice for all" (4th album) with elements of the style of "The black album" (5th album)
- 11th album (2023), the production is again most similar to the sound of "The black album", and the style has elements of all their first 5 albums

METALLICA is the only band that sold their old albums in large numbers many years ater they were released, majority of them were sold partly after the release of their 4th album (1988) and mostly after the release of their 5th album (1991).

https://chartmasters.org/metallica-albums-and-songs-sales/

List of the best-selling METALLICA albums:
1.) 5th album (1991)
2.) 4th album (1988)
3.) 3rd album (1986)
4.) 2nd album (1984)
5.) 6th album (1996)
6.) 7th album (1997)
7.) 1st album (1983), if it had a slightly better sound, it would probably be in place number 5

All the first 5 albums that METALLICA released in the period 1983-1991 are excellent (most of their songs and cover songs from this period are great, and the rest of their songs and cover songs from this period are good), from the period 1996-2000 there is for 1 album of good METALLICA songs (including some cover songs) and from the period 2003-present there is for 1 album of METALLICA songs where some parts of the songs sound OK.

If I were involved in the production of their albums, I would advise them to switch back to the style of 1996-2000 era in the future, which is some kind of rock music with heavy guitars, the style is something between hard rock and metal, it's harder than hard rock but still it's not metal, the mentioned style of music could be called "harder rock".

METALLICA got known in Los Angeles (where they are originally from), San Francisco (where they moved to) and New York (where they recorded their first album) after the release of their 1st album "Kill'em all" in 1983, after the release of their 2nd album "Ride the lightning" in 1984 they got known in music circles in America, after the release of their 3rd album "Master of puppets" in 1986 they achieved their first real commercial success and they got known in America, after the release of their 4th album "... and justice for all" in 1988 they got known in many other parts of the world too and they achieved even much bigger commercial success internationally and after the release of their 5th album "Metallica" (or unofficially "The black album") in 1991 they achieved enormous commercial success internationally!

After the release of their second commercially most successful 4th album "... and justice for all" in 1988 the sales of their first 3 albums increased a lot and after the release of their commercially far most successful 5th album "Metallica" (or unofficially "The black album") in 1991 the sales of their first 4 albums increased enormously!
