Cover stars of both this month's Metal Hammer and Classic Rock, there are few bands in the metal world that can make the world sit up and pay attention half as effectively as Metallica do. 

Closing in on 40 years since the release of their genre-defining debut Kill 'Em All, the San Francisco (former) thrashers are firing on all cylinders as they gear up for a massive world tour to celebrate the release of their 11th studio album, 72 Seasons.
