Metallica has seen a lot of support from its fans in times some would consider a 'purer' Metallica, full of the unique thrash that these fans want to hear. The band has also witnessed a lot of anger, coincidentally, at St. Anger, Metallica's second-to-last album (at time-of-writing, early 2012). Recently, they have brought a bit of their fan-base back with their newest work, Death Magnetic, but the band has already sustained heavy damage.
What future lays in store for Metallica is up to the fans. If they are forgiving, Metallica may soon make a strong comeback. However, should fans stand stalwart on the matter, then we will likely see the end of a once-great band.
