How James Hetfield helped Ghost become the biggest metal band of the decade

If 2022 has proven anything in metal, it’s that Ghost are the most widely celebrated and talked-about band of their entire generation. With latest album Impera smashing it in charts around the world and the Swedes playing huge venues across The States and Europe, it’s hard to think of another metal band to have emerged at the start of the 2010s that has reaped such huge success.

And one of the band’s biggest supporters throughout this whole time? The biggest metal band of them all – Metallica, whose frontman James Hetfield was singing Ghost’s praises right at the very start, supported them at early shows, and who was a big part of Metallica taking the band under their wing in the years that followed.
