Metallica has been one of the most versatile heavy metal bands on the planet. Between all of their ventures (Guitar Hero, playing with the SF Symphony Orchestra, Cameos in films...) the music remains. If you've never heard a Metallica album, this is the one to start with. As their sound has evolved in the later works (and the musicians have changed) the music has strayed away from the powerful metal roots on full display in this album. Pick it up today!
