Kill Em All
After "Ride the Lightning" struck the charts in ’84 and "Master of Puppets" sent Metallica soaring to the top of the heavy-metal heap, Megaforce reissued the band’s 1983 debut LP "Kill ’Em All," which hit the charts in April of ’86. This is nothing short of thrash-metal ground zero, right from track one, the blazing-fast "Hit the Lights," which gives way to the galloping "The Four Horsemen," the hard-charging "Motorbreath," the early fan favorites "Jump in the Fire," "Seek and Destroy," "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth" and more. Former member Dave Mustaine (of Megadeth) penned four of the songs; the energy and virtuosity on display across all 10 tracks still takes one’s breath away all these years later. Metallica’s trailblazing first album returns here on remastered CD or vinyl, and the deluxe set offers a bounty of period treasures. The additional CDs bring you 1984 band interviews, rough mixes from Lars’ vault, bootleg tracks, the "Whiplash" EP, a 1984 live recording from J Bees Rock III in Middletown, New Jersey and a 1983 set at the Keystone in Palo Alto, California. Also from ’83 is their thundering set at the Metro in Chicago, which you’ll watch on DVD. The additional vinyl LPs include a 1984 set at Espace Balard in Paris and a picture disc with "Jump into the Fire" plus live-at-the-Automat recordings of "Seek and Destroy" and "Phantom Lord." A hardcover book full of unseen photos and a collectible patch complete this killer "Kill ’Em All" set! Blackened.
