US metal band
Metallica is an American metal band formed by drummer Lars Ulrich and vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield in 1981. The current line-up also features lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo. The group's debut album Kill 'Em All (1983) was an all-out aggressive thrash metal album. In the mid-1980s they moved towards a heavy metal sound. Their output during the '80s remains hugely influential throughout the metal scene. Their 1991 self-titled release mixed heavy metal with a more commercial sound. The album has been certified 16x Platinum by the RIAA. Later in the '90s they adapted to the times with hard rock/alternative rock albums Load (1996) and Reload (1997). In recent years they have moved back towards a more traditional metal sound. Metallica have released nine studio albums and sold 110 million records worldwide.
A clear reference to Hemighway's novel, which goes by the same name; it's a novel about warfare and all kinds of shame and humiliation all men participate in it experience. given that "Ride the Lightning" it's an album people get into in a relatively young age, it can become the first incentive Ï„Î¿ Hemingway, before Hemingway himself.
Well, I don't think anybody really understood what Metallica tried to accomplish with St. Anger's raw and primitive production... In terms of music though, it includes some spectacular tracks, like "Frantic" here, a title which stands perfect for its content! It's about a person who suddently realises that something went wrong along the highway of his life, and the result was that he now is... Frantic!
