The long a waited follow up to The Black Album finally came after 5 years in 1996.  With such a long wait, most hard core fans were expecting a high speed, hard core, metal masterpeice but much to their dismay they got the different sounds of Load.  Some fans were pissed of, and some acused them of selling out but this was not the case.  Metallica changed for themselves, not for the money or fans.  It was just after 15 years, writting more of the same music seemed kind of pointless.  All the best artist's habitually reinvent themselves and that's what Load is about.  Dispite fans' distaste, Load was #1 for a while and got plenty of air play as well as spawned a few music videos and singles.

Metallica's 7th studio release  in 1997 was another hit.  It was #1 on the charts for a while, got air play, music videos, singles, etc.  It also seemed that fans were starting to accept Metallica's creative change.
