Metallica (commonly known as The Black Album) is the self-titled fifth studio album by American metal band Metallica. Released on August 12 1991, it received widespread critical acclaim and became the band's best-selling album.
Metallica produced five singles that are considered to be among the band's best-known songs, which include "Enter Sandman", "The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters", "Wherever I May Roam", and "Sad but True".
The album marked a change in the band's sound from the thrash metal style of the previous four albums to a slower and heavier one rooted in heavy metal.
