306 – Metallica – Enter Sandman (1991)
Written by Kirk Hammett / James Hetfield / Lars Ulrich
Produced by Bob Rock, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich
Label – Elektra

Having worked extensively with AC/DC, producer Bob Rock new the value of a damn good riff. It’s fair to say that the killer 3 bars from “Enter Sandman” are as good as anything the Antipodeans ever produced and Rock reinforced this by a wall of sound containing three rhythm guitars powering the instrumental. The result is as aggressive, intense and memorable as heavy metal gets.
