Sprung from the roots of 70s hard rock, Metallica defined the
look and sound of 1980s heavy metal, just as Led Zeppelin had for
hard rock and the Sex Pistols for punk before them. Inventors of
thrash metal--Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth followed--it was always
Metallica who led the way, who pushed to another level, who became
the last of the superstar rockers.
Though plagued by adversities, including the death of their
bassist in a bus crash, infighting and substance abuse, they
survived to became the biggest-selling band in the world. With 100
million records sold worldwide, their music has extended its reach
beyond rock and metal, and into the pop mainstream, as they went
from speed metal to MTV with their hit single "Enter Sandman."
Until now there hasn't been a critical, authoritative, in-depth
portrait of the band. Mick Wall's thoroughly researched, insightful
work is enriched by his interviews with band members, record
company execs, roadies, and fellow musicians. He tells the story of
how a tennis-playing, music-loving Danish immigrant named Lars
Ulrich created a band with singer James Hetfield and made his
dreams a reality. "Enter Night" delves into the various
incarnations of the band, and the personalities of all key members,
past and present--especially Ulrich and Hetfield--to produce the
definitive word on the biggest metal band on the planet
