About this deal

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I'm convinced that (the songs) "Escape," and "Creeping Death," weren't made by Metallica, but by a symphonic metal band playing speed metal. Metallica’s second album, Ride The Lightning (1984), will be pressed on 180g ‘Electric Blue’ limited edition coloured vinyl, featuring the 2016 remastered audio. This is what I mean when I say this album is disappointing compared to Kill Em All, which is an album that I love.

The first thing that bothers me with this album is how very few moments of thrash metal are on here, and yeah, at the time this album was made, thrash metal barely existed as a term, let alone had a definition, but a few of the songs barely sound made by the same band that made Kill Em All.

Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. Two months after its release, Elektra Records signed Metallica to a multi-year deal and reissued the album. I finally got a copy of this legendary pressing, i had the deluxe boxset and hated the sound, but on this one, everything is well defined, very bright too, maybe lacks a little bit of bass but my god cliff's parts here. Instead of relying heavily on fast tempos as on its debut Kill 'Em All, Metallica broadened its approach by employing acoustic guitars, extended instrumentals, and more complex harmonies. And Justice For All and Metallica have sold over 65 million copies worldwide and have shaped an entire generation of metal fans and are still among the most iconic metal albums ever.

The sleeve and cover are both sort of wrecked, and the record is cracked through the first two songs, but it still plays pretty nice! Although 75,000 copies were initially pressed for the American market, the album sold half a million by November 1987. It's my recollection that most, if not all, of the Megaforce releases I bought around then had clear inners. Metallica’s debut album, Ride The Lightning (1984), will be pressed on 180g ‘Electric Blue’ limited edition coloured vinyl lp, featuring the 2016 remastered audio. For Whom the Bell Tolls": That bell is a dumb addition to this song, the riffs are awesome, and Cliff Burton's bassline is sick.

Hetfield himself is also responsible for bringing down his own riffs by trying to sing like Rob Halford.

Ride the Lightning is often hailed by fans as a classic of the thrash metal genre, and a vital bridge between the band's albums Kill 'Em All and Master of Puppets, pushing the thrash metal of the debut into progressive territory more fully-realized on Master of Puppets and .Garage Days Re-Revisited' is a covers EP by Metallica, released in August 1987, featuring their versions of tracks by Diamond Head, Budgie, Holocaust, Killing Joke and The Misfits. James Hetfield made some of the greatest riffs ever for the songs on this album, and while most of them are pure aggressive genius, a few of them are bombastic. The band performed at major music festivals such as Monsters of Rock and Day on the Green later that year.

Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. you can really hear the growl, the attack of his bass is amazing, also, this pressing is just a really great piece of history, my copy came with the flyer so it's always nice to have something so important for music history, i give this pressing 10/10 on the Historical aspect of it and 9/10 on sound, cause it sounds beautiful, but maybe i would've liked a little bit more bass.Starting in November, one of the albums will be released each month, starting with "Kill 'Em All", as a limited/remastered LP. My only minor niggle is that a cd that is in a cardboard sleeve maybe could do with being sent out in sturdier packaging.
