Metallica is the fifth studio album of Metallica. It was released on August 12, 1991 on Elektra Records and is often called The Black Album because of its simple, almost completely black cover. The album, mainly produced by Canadian Bob Rock, marked a turning point in the band's musical development. After the songs had become longer and more progressive before, the band now wrote easier arranged, shorter and catchier songs.
With more than 28 million units sold worldwide, about 16 million of them in the USA, Metallica is still the best-selling metal album. In ten countries it reached number one in the respective album charts. In 1992 Metallica received the Grammy Award in the category Best Metal Performance.
