Biography
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.
