Metallica

Album Description:

When Metallica recorded 1996's LOAD, the studio sessions were fruitful enough for the group to put out two records.

RELOAD is the seventh studio album by the American heavy metal band. It was released on November 18, 1997 through Elektra Records. The album is a sequel or counterpart to the band's previous album, the aformentioned LOAD. Only five of the thirteen songs have ever been played live. These songs include "Fuel", "The Memory Remains", "Devil's Dance", "The Unforgiven II", and "Low Man's Lyric". ReLoad is currently certified 3x platinum by the RIAA. It is the final Metallica studio album to feature bassist Jason Newsted, though it is not his last release with the band.

The original idea was to make Metallica's sixth album a double album. But with problems recording so many songs at one time, the band decided that half of the songs were to be released and the band would continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the following year. Drummer Lars Ulrich stated that "it's the second half of LOAD. It's just coming out a year-and-a-half later." This is the second album to feature all songs in E Flat tuning, though "Devil's Dance" was played in D tuning which was earlier used for "Sad but True" on METALLICA and later used for "Whiskey in the Jar" from GARAGE INC.

Stretching beyond Metallica's speed metal roots, RELOAD is a continuation of the experimentation that dismayed many old fans and welcomed in many new ones. As a result, many Metallica firsts are reached on their seventh album. Some anomalies include recruiting the legendary Marianne Faithfull to contribute backing vocals on "The Memory Remains" and the addition of hurdy-gurdy and violin to the mix of the wistful "Low Man's Lyric." Throughout all this experimentation, Metallica still plays hard and fast, particularly on the metal groove of "Fuel" and the relentless pounding of "Where The Wild Things Are," (a title borrowed from children's author Maurice Sendak).

"Fuel" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance. "Better Than You" won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.

Recorded at The Plant Studios, Sausilto, California, U.S.A. between May 1995 and February 1996 and from July to October 1997.
