New Instant Gratification Track Now Available With The Black Album Pre-Orders: “Holier Than Thou (Pre-Production Rehearsal)”

The Black Album is one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed records of all time. Its 1991 release not only gave Metallica its first #1 album in no fewer than 10 countries, including Australian where the album is ARIA accredited 13x platinum, its unrelenting series of singles — “Enter Sandman”, “The Unforgiven”, “Nothing Else Matters”, “Wherever I May Roam”, and “Sad But True” — fueled the band’s rise to stadium headlining, radio and MTV dominating household name status. The album’s reception from the press was similarly charged, building over the years from the top 10 of the 1991 Village Voice Pazz & Jop national critics poll to becoming a constant presence in the likes of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The album’s impact and relevance continue to grow—as proven by one indisputable fact: The Black Album remains unchmetallicaallenged as the best-selling album in the history of Nielsen Soundscan, outselling every release in every genre over the past 30 years.
