Sorry about the lack of posts the last couple days. I've been a bit busy. Today, we come to Metallica. Their merits are so incredibly obvious it's probably a waste of time to even talk about them. Metallica transcends the metal genre. They are one of the biggest bands in the world period. Unfortunately, it's not due to their early material, it's mostly The Black Album, an album that I argued did as much as anything else to force metal into the underground. But the band does not ignore their early material, and neither should we. Their first four albums are as good as any band's, including Black Sabbath and The Beatles. And they were the first metal band I started listening to. It's obvious that Metallica deserves inclusion here.
FAVORITE ALBUM: RIDE THE LIGHTNING
