Metallica – Classic albums: The Black Album (Full Documentary)

39



Documentary from 2001 where Metallica, Bob Rock, and Randy Staub look back at the making of their biggest selling and most successful album.

This documentary is elsewhere on YouTube, but it’s in multiple parts, so I decided to upload so people can watching it in full.

  • I loved Kill 'Em All, and Ride the Lightning, absolutely LOVED Master of Puppets, and played along with …And Justice for All over and over again. The black album was the 1st one Metallica released that didn't make me want to sit down and play along to, and when I tried, I found the songs kind of boring to play. It's by no means a bad album, but it definitely went in a direction that I didn't find nearly as interesting musically.

  • Actually James Justice is good for NOW. Bob rock was actually WRONG. Should have stuck with No one fcks with us….
    Get the drums as big as possible? Get the Guitars as big as possible? LOL dude must have never listened to Ride the Lightning. Bob Rock was a decade long disaster for Metallica LOL

  • The black album was when I stopped listening….awful album. Metallica goes mainstream. And in doing so they lost there old school heavy metal touch.

  • 9:10 Sandman live sounds awful when they switch to the music video. Ouch!

  • Did I miss the part where they discussed the last 4 songs on the album or am I just that high? The B side of that album was the best part of it. They always have killer B sides though. Usually my favorite part of them.

  • this was fun to watch. i wish the episode was longer because just under 50 mins is nowhere near enough content fo a record like this.
    if only the producers of this show would create additional episodes for our entertainment

  • 00:02:57 Love how Lars implies that the original Sandman riff was really different from the final version. It wasn't – Kirk basically had the whole thing down. It just needed a slight change. Give the man his due, Lars – he wrote your band's (arguably) most famous riff. Geez.

  • this series, what they celebrate, is the commercial success, like the industry itself, and I don't see it badly, but in any case, this album is not at the level of an album like "master of puppets".

  • I dont care who had to do with what . But metal beats corporate rock. Any day . Bob is a women. The record To nice for me. F the bass

  • 35:11 Kirk slightly fucks up the riff at the very end. It's hardly noticable but humbling.

  • Funny when this album came out a real Metallica fan just cried himself to sleep…. cliff burton rolled over in his grave …METALLICA went mainstream POP definitely a sad time…

  • This album and nevermind by Nirvana changed the genre of music I listened to.

  • 26.00 In my opinion – Hetfield made a mistake seeking singing lessons when he started to lose his voice. His growling vocals are/were his signature.

  • Interesting that the sound of this video keeps clipping and distorting.

  • Before Nirvana blew up alternative music sucked and mainstream music was also brutal

  • FUCK NO! Nobody was being a jerk…. you had the best guitar soloist on the market that was so good he got lazy…. okay maybe not lazy but he had gotten so comfortable that he lost his " Metallica hungry"…. well he was pissed off and delivered what Metallica fans expect and more!!! Bam!

  • 3:25 Lars is such a dick sometimes "If i hadn´t changed the Riff, it wouldn´t be so famous"…
    I get why Hetfield and Lars had always trouble..
