This second volume of Metallica's definitive biography opens as the band breaks through to mainstream with its fifth album, Metallica (a.k.a. The Black Album), topping the Billboard charts and its hit single Enter Sandman dominating the airwaves. By 1993 Metallica had become the biggest hard rock-band in the world. Success naturally brought new challenges, and the band ran the risk of alienating its original fans. It was beset by controversy over stylistic shifts, concessions to the mainstream, its stance on file sharing, even the band members' haircut decisions. By the end of the century, they were teetering on the brink of self-destruction. But a stunning return to form awaited.
