Ulrich’s drumming style has changed throughout his career. During the 1980s he was known for his fast, aggressive thrash beats. He would often utilize the double bass technique in Latin breakbeats, which became highly popular among heavy metal drummers.
The best examples of this are found in songs such as „Metal Militia” (Kill ‚Em All), „Fight Fire with Fire” (Ride the Lightning), „Battery”, „Damage, Inc.” (Master of Puppets), „Blackened”, „One”, „Dyers Eve” (…And Justice for All), „That Was Just Your Life”, „All Nightmare Long” and „My Apocalypse” (Death Magnetic). Even though „Hardwired”, „Moth Into Flame” and „Spit Out the Bone” have the same double bass technique, the 2016 release of Metallica’s Hardwired… to Self-Destruct saw a more aggressive and experimental drumming style from Ulrich. Ulrich uses groove in his drum style, including clean and fast double bass beats in many songs and heavy drum fills. He has been known to drum in sync with the rhythm guitar played by James Hetfield.
He was inducted in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 with his band Metallica and he was the first Danish musician to feature in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
When he was young, Ulrich was very interested in British heavy metal band ‘Diamond Head’ and travelled from San Francisco to London to see their live performance.
