Description

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 artwork, based on a concept by the band, depicts an electric chair being struck by lightning flowing from the band logo. Metallica’s second album, Ride The Lightning (1984), will be pressed on 180g ‘Electric Blue’ limited edition coloured vinyl, featuring the 2016 remastered audio.

He sounds terrible, and there is not a single song on this album where he sounds anything above a poor imitation of Halford. I don’t understand some of the negative feedback Chalkys get - I have never had any problem and would absolutely recommend them. 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. Make no mistake, this is a great, highly ambitious album that certainly has its moments, but as the follow up to Kill Em All, it is rather underwhelming.No matter what anyone may say about their Load/Reload or St Anger records and their faults, this is true Metallica and is a credit to the band! So, trying to figure out the difference between this silver label version and the gray label version that was released 3 days later, according to Discogs. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Although 75,000 copies were initially pressed for the American market, the album sold half a million by November 1987. Metallica's debut album, Ride The Lightning (1984), will be pressed on 180g 'Electric Blue' limited edition coloured vinyl, featuring the 2016 remastered audio.

Hetfield himself is also responsible for bringing down his own riffs by trying to sing like Rob Halford. The riffs and arrangements are moreintricate, the lyrics are more intelligent and biting and James Hetfield's growl is meaner. Although rooted in the thrash metal genre, the album showcased the band's musical growth and lyrical sophistication.

Fight Fire With Fire": That acoustic intro belongs on a power metal album, and definitely not the opening to this song.I notice it most on Fate to Black, there seems to be some strange harmonics during the clean tone/acoustic guitars on the Walmart version. Trapped Under Ice": that riff is cool, and it is nice to have a solo at the beginning rather than the end, and an excellent thrash solo at that, and as good as this song is, the intensity starts to fade a great deal halfway through the song, like, a lot. 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. This was partly because bassist Cliff Burton introduced the basics of music theory to the rest of the band and had more input in the songwriting. Two months after its release, Elektra Records signed Metallica to a multi-year deal and reissued the album.

UMR/Mercury are pressing 11 of Metallica’s studio album back catalogue on custom coloured vinyl for the first time for World ex North America; following the 2021 Walmart exclusive coloured vinyl series in the US. I ran these through a DAW and corrected the speed and the tracks sound much better even at a slightly slower tempo. 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. It's my recollection that most, if not all, of the Megaforce releases I bought around then had clear inners.The rest of this song is pure thrash metal, and pretty much the only pure thrash metal song on this album. This is what I mean when I say this album is disappointing compared to Kill Em All, which is an album that I love. Starting in November, one of the albums will be released each month, starting with "Kill 'Em All", as a limited/remastered LP.
