Product Description

Product Description

Deluxe Edition of Two LP set. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 1983 album,Kill 'Em All, which was the debut album from Metallica. Ranked eighth on the list of the biggest selling groups in history, and one of the most influential bands in music, Metallica proved its metal with this groundbreaking album. In 1983, Metallica traveled to Rochester, New York to record its first album, Metal Up Your Ass. Due to conflicts with the band's record label and distributors' refusal to release an album with that name, it was renamed Kill 'Em All. The album peaked on the Billboard 200 at number 120 and although the album was not an initial financial success, it earned Metallica a growing fan base in the underground metal scene.


While not as timeless as Ride the Lightning or Master Puppets, Metallica's debut album--originally released in 1983--is still a fine piece of thrash metal, and as good a marker as any for the debut of the genre. Fusing the rapid-fire attack of bands like Motorhead with a guitar style reminiscent of such British heavy metal bands as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Metallica essentially created a new kind of metal. Several of the songs from this 1983 album have since become classics, including "Seek & Destroy", "The Four Horsemen", and "Jump in the Fire". The songwriting isn't as sophisticated as on Metallica's later releases; still, it's a great listen, and essential for any heavy metal fan. --Genevieve Williams

This is where it all started. Once in a while, I pull out old records from my youth and reminisce about the good ol' days; I put on some Public Enemy, N.W.A, Run DMC and other rap records from the late 80's and early 90's and think how it use to be(I'm black, by the way). But If I wan't to really want to wax poetic about a point in my life, I put on some 80's Metallica. I thank them for introducing me to heavy metal; thanks to them I no longer associated metal with corny hair bands like Poison and Bon Jovi and got me into Anthrax, Megadeth, Pantera, Sepultura and other super heavy bands. The Black album was my starting point, and Master Of Puppets made me a believer,but Kill 'Em All is actually my favorite record of the Metallica catalog.It's great to see four exuberant, carefreee hard heads have fun and wreck shop at the same time. I only wish they had a time machine so they could see what they would become and put a stop to it. While Kill Em All isn't their best, it's merely a starting point to bigger a better things and still very much worth buying. Go get it!

Format:Audio CD
There can be no doubt that Metallica has reached legendary status and this album is the album that started it all. This album is speed metal at its best. The Four Horsemen has to be considered a classic. The album is simply amazing. You can hear the influence of Dave Mustaine on this albuim and Metallica was wrong when they told him to leave the group. Before Metallica was mainstream, this album was rockin'. No Remorse, Whiplash and Seek & Destroy are some of the best songs on the album. Kill Em' All marked the beginning of a legend. Metallica are the kings of metal!!

5.0 out of 5 stars delivers what it promises. Aug. 17 2005
Format:Audio CD
METAL UP YOUR ASS! This is Kill 'Em All, and you get exactly what you payed for.
Fast, Hard, Thrashy, all words made up discribe this masterpiece.
It starts off with Hit The Lights, which in my mind is probably the least good song on here, but it only goes up hill now.
The Four Horsemen could be a posterboy for thrash metal, In everyway thinkable it is a song to be respected and listened to.
Motorbreath is also a unique song, the intro drumming is awesome.
Jump In The Fire is a fast thriller of a song, if you like fast check this one out.
Now for (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth. This song is simply a showcase of the unmatched talent which is Cliff Burton.
Whiplash is also one of the fastest songs on this cd, it never slows down for a second.
Phantom Lord really stands out for me because of the solo. I dont think i've heard a better solo to date, which makes it great.
No Remorse is quite a good song, its fast and thrashy, I just cant call it one of favorites.
But now onto my personal favorite, Seek and Destroy. Seek and Destroy is a combination of catchy lyrics, fast creative riffs, and amazing solos.
Metal Milltia is one of the thrashiest songs on here for sure, but after a few listens i just couldn't find it to be a hit for me.

Basically, If your a fan of Thrash Metal at its best, or a Metallica fan in general, get out there and add this cd to your collection !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of it all July 20 2005
By Steven
Format:Audio CD
(some background information): In summer 1983, Metallica's lead guitarist Dave Mustaine was kicked out because of drinking problems/other issues. Shortly after that, Kirk Hammett was hired and they recorded Kill em All in July 1983. Most of the album had been complete and already written when Kirk joined the band, the only thing he changed were the style of the solos, and just other odd things here and there.
Kill em all is a perfect debut for one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time. It is fast, thrashy, heavy and insane!!!
Hit the Lights - one of my personal favorites on the album - crazy guitar solos, and a great riff. Gets me pumped up!
The Four Horseman - Originally written by Dave Mustaine as "the Mechanix", this song was slown down majorly, and had a lyrics make-over. While I am a huge fan of Dave and Megadeth, THe Four Horseman owns the Mechanix
Motorbreath - I never liked this song to begin with, but it really has grown on me.
Jump in the Fire - Interesting riffs in this one. Drumming sounds a lot like "run to the hills" for some reason - maybe it's just me haha
Anesthesia (pulling teeth) - Cliff Burton's bass solo. Lars kicks in half way though. I cant really rate this as a song, but It is a great bass solo
Whiplash - Fast, thrashy, insane - in my opinion defines the album, and should've been the title of the album!
Phantom Lord - Cool song, nothing really special
No Remorse - my least favorite on the album - nothing much happening in this one.
Seek and Destroy - Classic. Everyone knows this one --- searchin...seek and destroy!

4.0 out of 5 stars MUSTAINE DOES NOT SING OR PLAY ON THIS ALBUM Aug. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Excellent Debut, but no Hetfield, July 24, 2003
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer from Minneapolis, Metallica Capital of the World
Tracks like No Remorse are awesome & very similar to songs you will hear on Ride the Lightning, but something to know for you young 'tallica fans - Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, was the original lead vocalist for Metallica. Thus, if you like Megadeth you will like this album, while those longing for the rasp of Hetfield will remain unfulfilled.
Peace out,
p.s. Mustaine also sings on the title track on 'Ride the Lightning' "
the reviewer above was wrong, while Mustaine wrote 7 of the songs on Kill 'Em All and the title track for Ride The Lightening, he did not appear on any of the tracks on either of those albums. i personally love Kill 'Em All, but i like Killing is my Business... by Megadeth more.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the beginning...
It's hard to believe that Metallica once sounded so uncompromisingly raw, and without pretension. Almost makes one cry when you hear these guys dissing Napster and praising MTV. Read more
