This week on Galaxy’s Guide to summer, we are featuring widely accredited heavy metal band, Metallica.
This American group originated in Los Angeles, California, and has a history of ground-breaking performances dating back to 1981. Their popularity has only continued to thrive, and this band will be hitting a stage near you this summer during their Worldwired tour.
Due to the band’s upbeat tempos, hard instrumentals, and aggressive vocals, Metallica has been deemed one of the founding “big four” bands of thrash metal, along with Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax.
With a total of 10 studio albums, 4 live albums, 39 music videos, and 37 singles, it’s safe to say that Metallica has a strong hand in the music industry.
The band has also received 8 Grammy Awards, while 6 of their albums have debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts over the years, which coincides with their title as the most influential thrash metal bands in history. Also ranking as one of the most commercially successful bands of all times, Metallica has sold over 150 million records worldwide.
Consisting of vocalist James Hetfield, guitarist Kirk Hammett, bassist Robert Trujillo, and drummer Lars Ulrich, this dynamic power-team will only continue to captivate audiences with their newest tour, WorldWired kicking off this month.
