Load sees Metallica exploring in this, their sixth studio album. This album is for people who appreciate the evolution of Metallica as a band from start to finish. 

Renowned all over the world for fast heavy riffs, shuddering instrumentals, brash confident musicianship, and superb songwriting. This album showed more of a hard rock side of Metallica than the band's typical thrash style. The album included Southern rock, blues, country rock and alternative rock. Lars Ulrich described it as follows: "Metallica are all about: exploring different things. The minute you stop exploring, then just sit down and fucking die". 

Despite receiving polarising reviews Load debuted and spent four consecutive weeks at number one on the US Billboard chart. Load sold 680,000 units in its first week, making it the biggest opening week for Metallica as well as the biggest debut of 1996. It was certified five times platinum in the USA. 

This is an album for Metallica connoisseurs, if that's you, you'll love this album. You might have this album but you are worried about wear. You’ll also notice the tell-tale signs in the higher frequencies such as vocal "S" sounds and the cymbals which will begin to distort. We have managed to secure a minimum number of copies, they are very hard to find. So act fast!
