Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in October 1981. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, they arethemostcommerciallysuccessful heavy metal act in history. They are also the seventh biggest act in America. After building afollowingthrough its rolein thedevelopment of heavy metal in the 1980s, the band broadened its audience in the early 1990s.Accordingly,the band stood as themostcommercially visible example of the metal genre for most of that decade. However, withvastly increasedcommercial success camestylisticchanges that arguably abandoned their classic thrash metal roots and fosteredaccusations of"selling out" by some long-time fans. Manyalso feelthat Metallica's 1999-2001 stances against Internet file sharingdeeply damagedtheir reputation. In spite of this, the band havecontinued to betremendously commercially successful.

In 2003 Metallica released their 8th studio album, entitled St. Anger, a collection of the most aggressive music they had writteninadecade,todeeply divided critical reviews and comparatively mediocre sales figures, though their 2004 "Madly In Anger WithTheWorld" tour insupport ofthe album remained very successful. Metallica's next album, Death Magnetic, was released onSeptember12th, 2008, to somepositive feedback.While few would say that Death Magnetic singlehandedly brought Metallica backto theirthrash metal origins, many wouldagree that the albumcombined elements of their newer releases with cues from theirclassicalbums. Unfortunately, the album was marred bypoor production; howironic that their "comeback" album is bestappreciated viadigitally pirating rips from the better sounding Guitar Hero audiotracks. « hide
