Hardwired...To Self-Destruct is the first studio album for the Grammy-award winning rock group since their 2008 multi-platinum Death Magnetic.


The band first formed back in 1981. Guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich originally formed the group, and they have since gone on to become one of the most influential bands across the world. Metallica has sold 110 million albums worldwide and have performed on all seven continents (literally). After a rare performance in Antarctica, the band secured their spot in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first act to ever play all seven continents within a year!

In their highly-acclaimed history, Metallica has won nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.
