Having survived for three decades at the forefront of the heavy end of rock music, overcoming tragedy and changes of line-up, Metallica have thrived on the strength of their music.
They have earned a clutch of Grammy Awards; seen five albums reach number one on the Billboard 200; sold over 100 million records worldwide and their 2008 album Death Magnetic hit number one simultaneously in the UK and the US as well as topping the charts in over 30 other countries.
This Stories behind the Songs volume looks back over Metallica’s remarkable history, focusing on the biggest songs from their nine studio albums with first-hand accounts from the band about how those songs came to be.
