"Frantic" is the first track on St. Anger
, Metallica's eighth studio album. It was also the second single released from the album, following the title track
There was so much conflict in the band when they made the album that they called in performance enhancement coach Phil Towle
to mentored them while they made it. He did his job: The testimonials section of Towle's site has a quote from Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich saying, "Because of Phil, we have the best relationship we've ever had." On the same page, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is quoted, "If Lennon and McCartney had Phil, the Beatles would never have broken up."
