''St. Anger'' is the eighth studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on June 5, 2003 through Elektra Records. It was the band's last album released through ''Elektra''. The album marked the end of the longest timespan between studio albums from Metallica, with nearly six years between the release of ''ReLoad'' and ''St. Anger''. It is the first Metallica studio album to receive a Parental Advisory label. The album was originally intended for release on June 10, 2003, but was released five days earlier due to concerns over unlicensed distribution through filesharing networks. ''St. Anger'' marks the final collaboration between Metallica and producer Bob Rock, whose relationship began with the band's fifth studio album, 1991's ''Metallica''.

''St. Anger'' is the first Metallica album since their third studio album, ''Master of Puppets'', that does not feature long-time bassist Jason Newsted. Newsted left the band prior to the initial sessions for the album. Recording of the album initially started on April 24, 2001, but was postponed indefinitely when rhythm guitarist and singer James Hetfield entered rehab for "alcoholism and other addictions."

''St. Anger'' debuted at the top of sales charts in 30 countries, including the United States ''Billboard'' 200. Upon the release of the album, ''St. Anger'' met mixed critical reviews. In 2004, the lead single from the album, "St. Anger", won a Grammy Award for "Best Metal Performance". The album has also sold over 2 million copies in the US alone and was certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA. - Wikipedia
