Heavy-metal survivors Metallica are one of the most important bands on the planet. Formed in 1981, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich have sustained their reign over the hearts and minds of millions of devoted fans for over three decades. Rock journalist Paul Stenning comes face to face with this particular breed of monster to reveal the unique blend of fearless reinvention, integrity and resilience that have ensured Metallica’s unrivaled status as multi-platinum-selling metal royalty with a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The personal tragedy, petty rivalries and all-consuming addictions that have threatened to eclipse the band’s blistering achievement at every step are no secret – from the tragic loss of bassist Cliff Burton in 1986 to the remaining members’ prolonged mistreatment of new recruit Jason Newsted, Hetfield’s life-threatening alcoholism and Ulrich’s relentless pursuit of success at any price. In the wake of Metallica’s resounding comeback with 2008 LP Death Magnetic, this book takes an incisive look at all they’ve survived and the classic albums they recorded while doing so, including the adrenaline-fueled thrash of debut Kill ’Em All and the infectious, radio-borne riffs of mainstream crossover the Black Album.

Stripping away decades of empty hype, Metallica: All That Matters uncovers every last detail of Metallica’s chequered past, chronicling the highs and lows that took the group from stadium to courtroom to rehab, whilst attempting to unravel some of the most profound contradictions of all. Featuring unseen interviews from forgotten friends and ex-lovers, this is the complete, no-holds-barred guide to the band – all that matters for Metallica fans of every generation.
