20 Albums, 20 Days: Metallica ‘Load’

The album where Metallica cut their hair and changed their logo… It had been five years since they released their genre defining Black Album. They were the biggest hard rock band in the world and they decided to try something different. A lot of fans were mad and thought the band had abandoned their heavy metal roots but the band disagreed. In the end, the album sold 5 million copies and featured Metallica classics like “Until It Sleeps” and “King Nothing”.

Fun Fact: James Hetfield owns a car that is called The Beast and it is set up to survive earthquakes and a nuclear bomb.
