Smithy1998, I have to ask, have you heard songs like Disposable Heroes, Blackened, The Four Horsemen, or Creeping Death?

Not my favourite heavy metal, to be honest.
However they did make some decent tracks such as Enter Sandman and One.

I can't think of another band that released such iconic material as they did can also claim to have release St Anger & other such mediocre albums. Still they found their groove again with Death Magnetic and their best was so great I can't knock them down to much. Their first 5 albums are hard to match & I don't think they ever will.

Groundbreaking and highly influential metal act of the 80's. Kill Em' All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All are undisputed metal masterpieces. Afterwards, it's hit and miss with Death Magnetic probably the closest to being good as the first four.

The best of the best. Even at their worst, they're still better than 99% of the other bands out there.

Truly one of the greatest metal bands ever. Their first five albums were great. Very high highs (RTL, MoP), but also very low lows (St. Anger, ReLoad).

Taking into account only their glory days (first five albums), which is all anyone should get into, they were a really fantastic band. I mean, sometimes I put them on and try to listen ironically, but I just wind up getting super into it.

Posibly the definitive metal band by the end of the 80's, they created the speed/agressive combo that has been the characteristic of metal since. If only more of their albums were like their first 4... anyway, 'til the early 90's they were untochable, but they jumped the shark and became a parody of themselves.
