    Master of Puppets

    Master of Puppets

    • Year Released: 1986
    Master of Puppets is the third studio album by the American thrash metal band Metallica. It was released on March 3, 1986, through Vertigo Records, Music for Nations and Elektra Records, making it the group's major label debut. The album peaked at number 29 on the Billboard 200 chart and was the group's first record to be certified gold for sales of over 500,000 copies. This was done without any radio airplay or the release of a music video. The album was certified six times platinum by the RIAA. Master of Puppets received positive reviews. Master of Puppets marks the last Metallica album with bassist Cliff Burton, who died in a bus accident while touring to promote the album. Allmusic's Steve Huey commented that Master of Puppets was "the band's greatest achievement." "Some critics have called Master of Puppets the best metal album ever recorded," Huey noted. Master of Puppets has been featured on several "greatest albums of all time" lists. The album is present in the list "The All-TIME 100 Albums," published by TIME magazine in November 2006. In TIME critic Josh Tyrangiel's opinion, "Metallica didn't bother with hooks or pop discipline" in writing Master of Puppets. IGN ranked

    Kill 'Em All

    Kill 'Em All

    • Year Released: 1983
    Kill 'Em All is the debut studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on July 25, 1983. Since its release, it has been certified 3x platinum by the RIAA, having sold over three million copies in the United States. Metallica's original line-up featured James Hetfield (guitar/vocals), Lars Ulrich (drums), Ron McGovney (bass), and Dave Mustaine (lead guitar). Because of tensions with Mustaine, McGovney left the band. Castro Valley-born bassist Cliff Burton was recruited as his replacement. Mustaine was fired in April 1983 for his drug and alcohol problems, overly aggressive behaviour and clashes with bandmates. After Mustaine's departure, Metallica recruited Kirk Hammett, who previously played for Exodus and was a one time student of Joe Satriani. The band started recording the album with Hammett, whose guitar solos on the album were partially based on Mustaine's original solos (the first four bars of most solos were written by Mustaine), barely a month later. Mustaine then formed the band Megadeth, which also achieved multi-million selling success. Despite their differences, Mustaine's contributions to the early years of Metallica were still acknowledged; he

    Death Magnetic

    • Year Released: 2008
    Death Magnetic is the ninth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released on September 12, 2008 through Warner Bros. Records. It was the band's first album to be produced by Rick Rubin, making this Metallica's first album since 1988's ...And Justice for All that was not produced by Bob Rock. The album received mostly positive reviews upon release, with critics describing it as a return to the musical style of their early albums. Musically, the album is a radical departure from Metallica's previous album, St. Anger, which featured no guitar solos and a more modern sound. Death Magnetic, on the other hand, features very long, technical guitar solos from both Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield, marking a return to the band's thrash metal roots. The album was also the band's first album released through Warner Bros. Records, although they still remain with Warner Music Group, which also owns their previous label, Elektra Records. Outside of North America, they are distributed through Universal Music Group as they remain signed to Vertigo Records in the UK. The album is also the band's fifth consecutive studio album to debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S.,

    Garage Days Re-Revisited

    Garage Days Re-Revisited

    • Year Released: 1987
    The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited is an extended play by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on August 21, 1987 through Elektra Records. The extended play is considered to be an official release, as opposed to Garage Inc., a compilation album. The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited was the group's first recording to feature its new bassist Jason Newsted (credited as "Master J. Newkid" in the liner notes). The extended play consisted entirely of covers of late-'70s and early-'80s New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands and hardcore punk music rehearsed in Lars Ulrich's garage and later recorded in a new studio the band had constructed. The group included the dollar price in the title (which was printed on the cover) in an effort to ensure that fans were not over-charged for it. The official United States CD release of the extended play amended the title (and the price) to The $9.98 CD..., while other countries (such as Australia) still displayed The $5.98 E.P. with a sticker stating that this was the title and not the price. Though The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited has been out of print for many years and is considered a collector's item, all five

    Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    • Year Released: 1983
    Horsemen of the Apocalypse is an early demo recording by thrash metal band Metallica. The name of the demo was taken from the biblical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the book of Revelation, who would be the bearers of the end of the world.

    Live at Grimey's

    • Year Released: 2010
    Live at Grimey's is a live EP by the American heavy metal band Metallica. The EP was recorded live on June 12, 2008, at The Basement, a venue beneath Grimey's New & Preloved Music in Nashville, Tennessee, just before their appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. It was released on November 26, 2010. It was released on both CD and vinyl, and is available at independent record stores, as well as the band's website. In its first week after release, the EP sold around 3,000 copies. As opposed to all of Metallica releases from Death Magnetic onwards, Live at Grimey's is its first release since the band's live album S (1999) to use the original Metallica logo rather than the more slanted one used for Death Magnetic. It is a notable release as it shows the furthest Metallica has gotten into the song "Frayed Ends of Sanity" ever in a live performance, having often played a part of the introduction to the song in their live shows but never having played it in its entirety. All lyrics written by James Hetfield.

    Live Shit: Binge & Purge

    • Year Released: 1993
    Live Shit: Binge & Purge is a live album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was the band's first live album and was released in a box set format on November 23, 1993. The initial first pressings contained three CDs or cassette tapes, with songs from concerts in Mexico City on the Nowhere Else to Roam tour, as well as three VHS tapes and a black T-Shirt, while a newer version contains two DVDs from concerts in San Diego on the Wherever We May Roam Tour and Seattle on the Damaged Justice Tour. It was originally released as a cardboard box depicting the style of a typical tour equipment transport box. Besides the audio and video media, the box featured additional bonus material (booklet showing photos, typical tour correspondence as sent and received by the band and their management, and internal documents and handwritten notes; a recreated copy of an access pass to the "Snakepit" part of the tour stage; a cardboard drawing/airbrush stencil for the "Scary Guy" logo) and a black "Metalli'Fuckin'ca" T-Shirt. Live Shit: Binge & Purge has been certified 15x platinum by the RIAA as a long-form video format. Recorded at the Palacio de los Deportes, Mexico City, Mexico on

    Load

    • Year Released: 1996
    Load is the sixth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica. Released on June 4, 1996 through Elektra Records, it sold 680,000 units in its first week (making it the biggest opening week for Metallica) and the biggest debut of 1996. Load debuted (and spent four consecutive weeks) at #1 on Billboard 200. The album has sold over five million copies in United States and is certified 5x platinum by the RIAA. Four singles were released in part of the marketing campaign of the album: "Until It Sleeps", "Hero of the Day", "Mama Said", and "King Nothing". The album garnered backlash from a portion of the band's fan base because of a shift in tone from the group's previous efforts (Load features a bluesier sound than the band's previous outings). According to drummer Lars Ulrich: "This album and what we're doing with it – that, to me, is what Metallica are all about: exploring different things. The minute you stop exploring, then just sit down and fucking die." "The House Jack Built", "Cure", "Ronnie", and "Thorn Within" have never been played live. Only "Thorn Within" and "Cure" had occasional jam sessions throughout 1997 but were stopped thereafter. Released approximately five

    Megaforce demo

    • Year Released: 1983
    Megaforce is an early demo recording by thrash metal band Metallica. The band's lineup for the demo was James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine, Cliff Burton, and Lars Ulrich. This was the band's last recording with Dave Mustaine; the only other time Mustaine and Burton recorded together was on the previous demo, Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Officially, the demo did not have a title, but it is known by various names, including Megaforce, as it was the demo recording that led to them being accepted in Megaforce Records; the KUSF demo, as it was played on San Francisco radio station KUSF; and the Whiplash/No Remorse demo, due to the track listing. The demo was also recorded to familiarize new bassist Cliff Burton with studio recording.

    Metal Up Your Ass

    • Year Released: 1982
    Metal up Your Ass is a Metallica live demo recorded on November 29, 1982, at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. The support band was Exodus, with their soon-to-be lead guitarist Kirk Hammett on guitar. The band played all their original material (nine songs) that they had written until that point, which included all the songs from their previous demo No Life 'Til Leather and two new songs (which were later released on the Megaforce demo). Two cover songs of English NWOBHM legends Diamond Head were played, "Am I Evil?" and "The Prince", however "The Prince" was not recorded as the tape had run out. Both the album cover and name Metal up Your Ass were to be used as the band's first album name and sleeve. However, the record company would not accept this name and Cliff Burton changed the name to Kill 'Em All.

    Metallica

    • Year Released: 1991
    Metallica (also known as The Black Album) is the eponymously-titled fifth studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on August 12, 1991 through Elektra Records to critical acclaim. Metallica produced five hit singles that are considered today among the band's best-known songs: "Enter Sandman", "The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters", "Wherever I May Roam", and "Sad but True". The band promoted the album with a series of tours. In 2003, the album was ranked number 252 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The album marked the debut of a sound less complex than the thrash metal of previous albums. The recording of Metallica was troubled, with the band frequently entering conflicts with Bob Rock, the band's new producer, during production. The album debuted at number one in ten countries, and spent four consecutive weeks at the top spot of the Billboard 200, making it Metallica's first album to top album charts. Metallica is the group's best-selling album, selling more than 25 million copies worldwide. It is the best-selling album of the SoundScan era. The album was certified 15x platinum (diamond) by the RIAA on November 13,

    No Life 'Till Leather

    No Life 'Till Leather

    • Year Released: 1982
    No Life 'til Leather is Metallica's widely circulated demo tape. It received its name from the first line in the song "Hit the Lights". All the tracks are early recordings of songs that would later appear on the band's Kill 'Em All album. The track listing on Kill 'Em All is the same as that on the demo tape, save the addition of Cliff Burton's bass solo "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth", "Whiplash", "No Remorse" and "The Mechanix" (the latter of which was copied by Metallica as "The Four Horsemen"). The demo has been re-released three times so far unofficially, first under the title of Metallica¬タヤBay Area Thrashers, and was alleged to be a live bootleg recording of Metallica in the early days, however all 'live' sounds had been added from various sources including the Metallica video Cliff 'Em All. Soon this was discovered by Metallica and all copies were removed from stores. The second time it was re-released was under the title Metallica¬タヤIn the Beginning... Live, which is exactly the same as Metallica¬タヤBay Area Thrashers, but simply with a new title. The third release was called "Puppet Masters". It also contained the songs: "When Hell Freezes Over" (A demo version of a song

    Reload

    • Year Released: 1997
    ReLoad is the seventh studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released on November 18, 1997 through Elektra Records. It is a sequel or counterpart to the band's previous album, Load, and also the final Metallica album of the 20th century. ReLoad debuted #1 on the Billboard 200, selling 417,000 copies in its first week. Only six of the thirteen songs have ever been played live. They include "Fuel", "The Memory Remains", "Devil's Dance", "The Unforgiven II", "Low Man's Lyric", and "Carpe Diem Baby". There are also occasional jam sessions of songs including "Bad Seed", "Better Than You" and "Fixxxer". ReLoad is currently certified triple platinum by the RIAA. It was the final Metallica studio album to feature bassist Jason Newsted, though it was not his last release with the band. ReLoad also marked the second and the last appearance of a new Metallica logo on an album, until the release of Garage Inc. The original idea was to make Metallica's sixth album a double album. However, with problems recording so many songs at one time, the band decided that half of the songs were to be released and the band would continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the

    Ride the Lightning

    Ride the Lightning

    • Year Released: 1984
    Ride the Lightning is the second studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on July 27, 1984 through the independent record label Megaforce Records. The album was certified gold by the RIAA on November 5, 1987 and was most recently certified 5x platinum on June 9, 2003. Ride the Lightning contains the speed of Kill 'Em All on songs like "Trapped Under Ice" and "Fight Fire with Fire", but also contains the first of Metallica's longer, more intricate tracks, such as "Fade to Black" and the nearly 9-minute closing instrumental "The Call of Ktulu". It was the last Metallica album to credit former lead guitarist Dave Mustaine with co-writing any songs. The album was listed at number 3 on a list compiled by metal-rules.com of the Top 100 Metal Albums of All Time and #5 by IGN Music on the Top 25 Metal Albums. Q magazine (Summer/01, p. 127) - 5 stars out of 5 - "Reaffirms their status as the pre-eminent metal band of the modern era....They broke with the conventions of thrash metal to record the genre's first power ballad in 'Fade to Black'." Kerrang! (p. 50) - "[The album included] melody, maturity and musical intelligence. It was these traits which helped

    S&M

    • Year Released: 1999
    S (an abbreviation of Symphony and Metallica) is a live album by the American heavy metal band Metallica, with the San Francisco Symphony conducted by Michael Kamen. It was recorded on April 21–22, 1999 at The Berkeley Community Theatre. This is the final Metallica album to feature Jason Newsted as bassist. S contains performances of Metallica songs with additional symphonic accompaniment, which was composed by Michael Kamen, who also conducted the orchestra during the concert. The idea to combine heavy metal with an epic classical approach, as James Hetfield has stated repeatedly, was an idea of Cliff Burton. Burton’s love of classical music, especially of Johann Sebastian Bach, can be traced back to many instrumental parts and melodic characteristics in Metallica’s songwriting including songs from Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets. The other inspiration was Deep Purple's 1969 Concerto for Group and Orchestra. Purple revived their hybrid musical performance in 1999's Live at the Royal Albert Hall after being notified that Metallica were doing theirs earlier that year. In addition to songs from previous albums spanning Ride the Lightning through ReLoad, there are two new

    St. Anger

    • Year Released: 2003
    St. Anger is the eighth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released on June 5, 2003 through Elektra Records. Not only was it the band's first album of the 21st century, but it was the band's last album released through Elektra, thus marking the end of the longest timespan between studio albums from Metallica, with nearly six years between the release of ReLoad and this album. St. Anger was originally intended for release on June 10, 2003, but was released five days earlier due to concerns over unlicensed distribution through peer-to-peer file sharing networks. The album marks the final collaboration between Metallica and producer Bob Rock, whose relationship began with the band's fifth studio album, 1991's Metallica. St. Anger is the first Metallica album since Master of Puppets that does not feature long-time bassist Jason Newsted. Newsted left the band prior to the initial sessions for the album, leaving Rock to temporarily take his place until a permanent replacement could be found. It is also the first album since ...And Justice for All to have a title track. Recording of the album initially started on April 24, 2001, but was postponed indefinitely when rhythm
