Metallica - Reload: Wikipedia Album Entry

ReLoad is the seventh album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released November 18, 1997. The album is a direct sequel or counterpart to the band's previous album, Load. Drummer Lars Ulrich stated that: "it's the second half of Load. It's just coming out a year-and-a-half later." To date, the album has sold over 4 million copies in the US, and is certified Gold in the UK, having sold over 100,000 copies.

The original idea was to make Metallica's seventh album, a double album. But with problems recording so many songs at one time, the band decided that half of the songs were to be released, and the band would continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the following year.
