Heavy metal pioneers Metallica are being honoured with Sweden’s Polar Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in music.

Metallica is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles and, is best known for 1991’s Black Album. The band redefined the sound of metal with a tougher, faster and more abrasive take on rock.

Metallica will receive their £90,000 prize in Stockholm this June.

They’re the first metal band to win the award, which has previously gone to the likes of Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Chuck Berry and BB King – and is regularly called the “Nobel Prize of music”.
