Overview

Their roots lie in the heavy rock of 70s groups like Deep Purple. The music they played—heavy metal mixed with punk attitude—became its own genre: thrash. Their bassist died and they survived to became the biggest-selling band in the world. As grunge threatened to overtake them, they reinvented themselves. Then their singer went into rehab and they almost fell apart. They are Metallica, the most influential heavy metal band of the last thirty years.

As Led Zeppelin was for hard rock and the Sex Pistols were for punk, Metallica became the band that defined the look and sound of 1980s heavy metal. Inventors of thrash metal—Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth followed—it was always Metallica who led the way, who pushed to another level, who became the last of the superstar rockers.

Metallica is the fifth-largest selling artist of all time, with 100 million records sold worldwide. Their music has extended its reach beyond rock and metal, and into the pop mainstream, as they went from speed metal to MTV with their hit single “Enter Sandman”. Until now there hasn’t been a critical, authoritative, in-depth portrait of the band. Mick Wall’s thoroughly researched, insightful work is enriched by his interviews with band members, record company execs, roadies, and fellow musicians. He tells the story of how a tennis-playing, music-loving Danish immigrant named Lars Ulrich created a band with singer James Hetfield and made his dreams a reality. Enter Night follows the band through tragedy and triumph, from the bus crash that killed their bassist Cliff Burton in 1986 to the 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster, and on to their current status as the leaders of the Big Four festival that played to a million fans in Britain and Europe and continues in the U.S. in 2011.

Enter Night delves into the various incarnations of the band, and the personalities of all key members, past and present—especially Ulrich and Hetfield—to produce the definitive word on the biggest metal band on the planet.

    I thought the book was really good. The stories about Lars' and James' cildhoods are especially pleasing to hear. I have read several differant Metallica Bio's and this one was deffinitaley the best. They are my favorite band and I love to jam to their songs all the time on the bass and guitar. They are a great insparation and this book brought that to life. Thanks Mike Wall.

    Enter Enlightenment. Not a simple, soft, rehashing of the well

    Enter Enlightenment.

    Not a simple, soft, rehashing of the well documented history every hardcore Metallica fan already knows due to endless reruns and re-edits of vh1’s Behind the Music. Author Mick Wall pens the tale of the four horsemen with bone crushing intensity from the perspective of a British rock journalist. A lot of attention is focused on the early years, the Cliff Burton era in particular. For many fans; myself included, this is the best part of the story. The character building climb up the mountain to getting signed by a major record label is often way more riveting than the tales of excess and debauchery that usually follow. Wall’s own story covering the band is also interesting and offers a new perspective on what the boys were like at different phases of their journey to metal stardom.

    Wall deserves much praise for cutting through all the metal hero worshipping hype and getting to the cold, brutal, and often ugly truth. Consider the mistreatment of Jason Newsted. He’s the Meg Griffin of Metallica. Placed in what is viewed through hindsight as an absolute unwinnable situation; the lads certainly didn’t welcome Jason with open arms and in fact, would eventually drive him away. James may write pummeling riff after pummeling riff, and Lars may have the business savvy of a billion dollar global entrepreneur mastermind ; but they seem like real a-holes when you get down to it. Why give the guy the job if you’re not willing to welcome him as a brother?

    Wall dares to question Metallica’s relevance and what the future might hold for them. He also probes then phenomena of how they seem to do things that alienate their fans, i.e. the Black album, S&M, and the whole Napster debacle. Given the St. Anger, and Lulu records, I wonder if we are one Hetfield relapse away from the inevitable, career-ending Metallica country album. This is a must-read for any metal fan.
