Robert Trujillo’s celebrating a smash Down Under…
The 55-year-old half-Mexican American bassist and his Metallica band mates have come out swinging on Australia’s albums chart as S&M2 debuts at No. 1.
More than 20 years after Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony led the ARIA Albums Chart with the first installment, S&M, the unlikely partnership yields another leader.
The live compilation, recorded last September at San Francisco’s Chase Center, gives Metallica their seventh No. 1 album in Australia following Metallica (August 1991), Load (June 1996), S&M (November 1999), St. Anger (June 2003), Death Magnetic (September 2008), Hardwired…To Self-Destruct (2016).
