10 Reasons Not To Be Mad at Metallica’s ‘St. Anger’

Metallica - 'St. Anger'

June 5, 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Metallica‘s most controversial album, ‘St. Anger.’ The album is controversial not because of its lyrical content, but because of the direction the band went with it. Ringing snare drums, no guitar solos and filthy dirty guitar riffs all combine to make a ‘Tallica album like none other.

The creation of ‘St. Anger’ is one for the history books: James Hetfield enters rehab for alcoholism, former bassist Jason Newsted leaves the band and Lars Ulrich is still dealing with a bad public image for his vocal involvement in the Napster file-sharing case. Overcoming all of those obstacles was no easy task, but for a band like Metallica, it was necessary for the future of the band. ‘St. Anger’ marks a turning point in the band’s history as it opened the doors for a new member and also introduced a new writing process, one that had never been tried before with any other album.

On the 10th anniversary of this infamous album, rather than lay on criticism to the decade-old album, we here at Loudwire give you 10 reasons not to be mad at Metallica’s ‘St. Anger.’
