Metallica - Load [1996]
Studio album by Metallica

Load is the sixth studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on June 4, 1996 through Elektra Records. It spent four consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard 200. The album has sold over 5 million copies in America, and is certified 5x platinum by the RIAA. The album garnered a significant backlash from a portion of the band’s fan base because of a perceived shift in tone from the group’s previous efforts (Load features a bluesier sound than the band’s previous outings). According to drummer Lars Ulrich: “This album and what we’re doing with it – that, to me, is what Metallica are all about: exploring different things. The minute you stop exploring, then just sit down and fucking die.”
Load es el sexto álbum de estudio de la banda estadounidense de Heavy Metal Metallica, sucesor del exitoso Black Album de 1991. Grabado en los estudios The Plant en California y producido por Bob Rock (Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, The Cult, Jonas Brothers), Load representó un gran cambio en el grupo tanto de imagen como de estilo musical. La banda dio un giro a su estilo, abrazando nuevos sub-géneros musicales y profundizando en caminos ya abiertos en su anterior álbum Metallica. Desde el rock alternativo pasando por el country y hasta el blues, encuentran cabida en “Load“, combinándose con los riffs tradicionales de la casa, dejando totalmente de lado el thrash característico de sus inicios.
