Metallica was formed in​ 1981 in​ California by Lars Ulrich (drums) and James Hetfield (guitar/vocals) .​
They recorded their first demo, No Life Til' Leather, with Lloyd Grand (guitar), who was replaced in​ January 1982 by Dave Mustaine .​
At the end of​ 1982, Cliff Burton (bass) joined the band .​
Dave Mustaine departed to​ form Megadeth and was replaced by Kirk Hammett.
Metallica's first album Kill 'em All in​ 1983 is​ a​ testament to​ the real beginnings of​ the sub genre of​ heavy metal music known as​ thrash .​
If you look back on the thrash scene that was going on then, there might have been a​ couple bands that were more definitive of​ thrash music such as​ DRI and Megadeth .​
However, the album everyone remembers most is​ Kill 'em All.
After the success of​ Kill 'em All, Metallica came back in​ 1984 with Ride the Lightning .​
I've always found this to​ be another great album with flat-out better production than the first album .​
It leans a​ bit more on traditional heavy metal instead of​ thrash .​
I​ personally prefer more thrash, but to​ each his own.
The next time Metallica came back with an​ album it​ was Master of​ Puppets in​ 1986 and is​ widely considered to​ be among the greatest metal albums ever released .​
After that they had ...And Justice for All in​ 1988 which is​ one of​ their most polished albums ever technique-wise.
With the commercial success of​ their next album in​ 1991 (Metallica) also known as​ the Black album, Metallica started to​ get further and further away from their original metal sound .​
Their popularity has gradually declined since then .​
However their early work including their first 5 or​ 6 albums will be remembered as​ some of​ the greatest metal albums ever released.
Their albums include Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of​ Puppets, Garage Days Re-Revisited [EP], ...And Justice for All, Metallica, Load, Reload and St .​
Anger.
