Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in October 1981. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, they are the mostcommerciallysuccessful heavy metal act in history. They are also the seventh biggest act in America. After building a following through 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, with vastly increased commercial success camestylisticchanges that arguably abandoned their classic thrash metal roots and fostered accusations of "selling out" by some long-time fans. Manyalso feelthat Metallica's 1999-2001 stances against Internet file sharing deeply damaged their 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 written in adecade,todeeply divided critical reviews and comparatively mediocre sales figures, though their 2004 "Madly In Anger With The World" tour insupport ofthe album remained very successful. Metallica's next album, Death Magnetic, was released on September 12th, 2008, to somepositive feedback.While few would say that Death Magnetic singlehandedly brought Metallica back to their thrash metal origins, many wouldagree that the albumcombined elements of their newer releases with cues from their classic albums. Unfortunately, the album was marred bypoor production; howironic that their "comeback" album is best appreciated via digitally pirating rips from the better sounding Guitar Hero audiotracks. « hide
