Metallica formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield and has become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million albums worldwide while playing to millions of fans on literally all seven continents. They have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991's Metallica (commonly referred to as The Black Album), with sales of nearly 17 million copies in the United States alone, making it the best-selling album in the history of Soundscan. Metallica has also garnered numerous awards and accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009. In December 2013, Metallica made history when they performed a rare concert in Antarctica, becoming the first act to ever play all seven continents all within a year, and earning themselves a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
ABOUT AVENGED SEVENFOLD
AVENGED SEVENFOLD are touring in support of their critically acclaimed new album THE STAGE, which they released three months ago following a live-streamed performance from the rooftop of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, CA. Led by its title track and a companion video that’s amassed over 13.5 million+ YouTube views, The Stage hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Hard Rock and Alternative Albums charts and No. 4 on the Top 200. Rolling Stone praised the album as “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career.” Guitar World, who spotlighted the band’s Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance with a cover story, lauded the album for being “the most surprising and ambitious album of their career.” The Guardian,Kerrang! and NME each gave it four stars, with the latter calling the album “their best yet,” adding that “they’ve truly arrived.” Q called it the band’s “boldest album yet” and Classic Rock called it “a metal masterpiece.” THE STAGE, available HERE, is the band’s 7th studio album and first for Capitol Records. Co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), THE STAGE is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring 11 panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme. Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release. The album’s epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist,” features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album. The Southern California-based quintet (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) have spent the past month touring in support, playing to packed-house arena crowds across the UK, debuting a spectacular new live show (see some of the stunning photosHERE) and drawing rave reviews from fans and media alike. The tour included two nights at London’s 02 Arena, performing to over a quarter-million fans on that leg alone. The Guardian ran a 4-star review of the show in Glasgow, writing, “Underneath retina-scorching screens and giant cosmic cube broadcasting spiraling starfields, the five-piece methodically discharge booming, arena-filling songs that are as hefty as they are heavy, with few clocking in at under five minutes. These industrial assemblages of growing riffs and fret-melting solos have a default minor-key menace, yet the overall atmosphere is surprisingly joyous.” AVENGED SEVENFOLD first achieved worldwide success with a string of best-selling albums — including their 2005 platinum breakthrough City Of Evil, 2007’s Avenged Sevenfold, which topped the Billboard Alternative, Hard, and Rock Charts, and two consecutive No 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart,Nightmare (2010) and Hail To The King (2013). They’ve achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries and scored a series of Top 10 singles at multiple formats.
