Metallica has survived the loss of bassist Cliff Burton, the Napster controversy, a lot of group therapy sessions and their disastrous Lou Reed collaboration. With Hetfield and Ulrich pushing 50, the band now has its own festival (Orion) and a 3D concert film, Metallica: Through the Never, and should release a 10th studio album in 2014.
