Befitting of its name, the time-honored legacy of Metallica is revered alongside Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer as one of the founding four bands of thrash metal genre but for all the fast-paced recklessness which may seem to underscore the band's megawatt sound, it's no secret that the whirlwind success of Metallica did not happen overnight. Founded in 1981 by Lars Ulrich (drummer) and James Hetfield (vocalist/guitarist), the Los Angeles locals would not reach international acclaim until the 1986 release of their third studio album, Master of Puppets, which would go on reach. No. 29 on the Billboard 200 with an impressive 72-week tenure on the chart. In the years since, the band has seen plenty of lineup changes lineups and critical acclaim by way of additional records like ...And Justice for All and Load punctuated by a recent 2018-19 North American Tour.
