Metallica – And Justice For All
Metallica is a heavy metal band from San Francisco, formed in 1981 by vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The duo first met through an ad in a Los Angeles-based music newspaper. The band’s fast tempos, instrumentals and aggressive musicianship made them one of the founding “big four” bands of thrash metal, alongside Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer. Metallica ranks as one of the most commercially successful bands of all time, having sold over 125 million albums worldwide as of 2018, and are listed as one of the greatest artists of all time by magazines such as Rolling Stone. …And Justice for All is the fourth studio album by the band, released on September 1988. It was the first album following the death of bassist Cliff Burton in 1986, and the first to feature his replacement Jason Newsted. It features aggressive complexity, fast tempos, and few verse-chorus structures, with an oft-criticized dry and bass-light mix. The lyrical themes of political and legal injustice project through the prisms of censorship, war, and nuclear brinkmanship. And Justice for All was acclaimed by music critics and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1989. The single “One” backs the band’s debut music video, and earned Metallica its first Grammy Award in 1990.
