Metallica is an American metal band formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California, United States when
drummer Lars Ulrich posted an advertisement in The Recycler. Metallica’s line-up originally
consisted of Ulrich, rhythm guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, and lead guitarist Dave Mustaine.

Mustaine was later fired due to problems with alcoholism and drug addiction – he went on to form
the band Megadeth. Exodus guitarist Kirk Hammett took his place. Metallica has been through
several bassists, including Ron McGovney, Cliff Burton (who died in a bus crash while the band
was on tour), and Jason Newsted. The current bassist is Robert Trujillo, who joined in 2003.

Metallica’s early releases included fast tempos, instrumentals, and aggressive musicianship that
placed them as one of the “big four” of the thrash metal sub-genre alongside Slayer, Megadeth,
and Anthrax. The band earned a growing fan base in the underground music community and
critical acclaim, with the 1986 release Master of Puppets described as one of the most influential
and “heavy” metal albums. The band achieved substantial commercial success with Metallica
(1991), which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. With this release the band expanded
its musical direction resulting in an album that appealed to a more mainstream audience.

In 2000, Metallica was among several artists who filed a lawsuit against Napster for sharing the
band’s copyright-protected material for free without the band members’ consent. A settlement
was reached, and Napster became a pay-to-use service. Despite reaching number one on the
Billboard 200, the release of St. Anger alienated many fans with the exclusion of guitar solos and
the “steel-sounding” snare drum. A film titled Some Kind of Monster documented the recording
process of St. Anger.

Metallica has released nine studio albums, two live albums, two EPs, twenty-two music videos,
and forty-four singles. The band has won nine Grammy Awards, and has had five consecutive
albums debut at number one on the Billboard 200, making Metallica the only band ever to do so.
The band’s 1991 album, Metallica, has sold over 15 million copies in the United States, and 22
million copies worldwide, which makes it the 25th-highest-selling album in the country. The band
has sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide as of the release of their latest album Death
Magnetic. As of September 2008, Metallica is the fourth highest-selling music artist since the
SoundScan era began tracking sales on May 25, 1991, selling a total of 51,136,000 albums in the
United States alone.

Metallica was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. Metallica organised a brand
new festival. They called it Sonishpere. Several cities in Europe were chosen by the band.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
