Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in October 1981. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, theyarethemostcommerciallysuccessful heavy metal act in history. They are also the seventh biggest act in America. After buildingafollowingthrough its rolein thedevelopment of heavy metal in the 1980s, the band broadened its audience in the early1990s.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 andfosteredaccusations of"selling out" by some long-time fans. Manyalso feelthat Metallica's 1999-2001 stances against Internet filesharingdeeply 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 hadwritteninadecade,todeeply divided critical reviews and comparatively mediocre sales figures, though their 2004 "Madly In AngerWithTheWorld" tour insupport ofthe album remained very successful. Metallica's next album, Death Magnetic, was releasedonSeptember12th, 2008, to somepositive feedback.While few would say that Death Magnetic singlehandedly brought Metallicabackto theirthrash metal origins, many wouldagree that the albumcombined elements of their newer releases with cues fromtheirclassicalbums. Unfortunately, the album was marred bypoor production; howironic that their "comeback" album isbestappreciated viadigitally pirating rips from the better sounding Guitar Hero audiotracks. « hide
