Biggest Rock Band in the World
Metallica was formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California when vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield responded to an add in the newspaper put by drummer Lars Ulrich. The band is now comprised of both Ulrich & Hetfield alongside Kirk Hammett on guitars, Robert Trujillo on bass. Their first album, Kill ‘Em All, was released in 1983 and has made a name for themselves as one of the founding “big four” bands of thrash metal next to Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer.
The band has released ten studio albums, four live albums, five extended plays, 26 music videos and 37 singles since beginning the bands career. They have also won eight Grammy Awards and have debut 5 albums at the number one spot on the Billboard 200. Metallica has sold over 110 million records worldwide and has been listed as one of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines including Rolling Stone. Though it may seem that the incredible rock group has accomplished a lot through the decades, with the release of their new album, the band shows no signs of quitting soon.
