( Review)







New levels for metal music !


In the 80's, "heavy metal" music reached new levels, most of all thanks to Metallica which created "thrash metal" with bands like Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth.


Approximately a decade after their beginnings in Los Angeles, California and after 4 first class albums, they gained an unexpected success selling more than 15 million copies of their 1991 self-titled album. At this time, the band is the 7th biggest selling act in American history and the biggest "heavy metal" selling act.


Despite the less creative period of the band in the 90's, Metallica is still one of the biggest metal influences in the world.
