Metallica is an American heavy metal band from California, USA. Formed in 1981, Metallica is considered to be one of the founding bands of thrash metal.

The band was formed after the various members answered a newspaper advertisement placed by drummer Lars Ulrich who was looking for people to jam with. Metallica quickly gained a following in the Los Angeles music scene as their new thrash metal sound picked up increasing numbers of followers from their many gigs.

Metallica’s first three studio albums, “Kill ‘Em All”, “Ride the Lightning” and “Master of Puppets” all did increasingly well on the US album charts, and eventually, each of these albums would be certified platinum. The band toured frequently in the US and Europe, playing to tens of thousands of fans at a time. Their constant touring meant that their music and image was rapidly gaining in popularity throughout the late 80s.

In 1986 tragedy struck the band when their tour bus crashed in Sweden and bassist Cliff Burton was killed. After debating whether to continue making music, the band received the blessing of Cliff Burton’s family and went on to record their next album “…And Justice For All”. The release of this album in 1988 saw the band attain its biggest success yet as the album charted at number 6 in the US and number 4 in the UK; Metallica also received their first Grammy Award nomination.

The commercial success of this album saw Metallica turned into superstars and living legends. Every single one of their subsequent five albums has hit the number one spot in the US and has been certified platinum. Tracks such as “Enter Sandman” and “Turn the Page” have become legendary in their own right and have inspired legions of artists.

Metallica has won an impressive nine Grammy Awards and three MTV VMA awards. Their style evolved from bands such as AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Aerosmith, but Metallica itself has gone on to be one of the most influential heavy metal bands of all time, selling more than 120 million records worldwide.
