Kill ‘Em All, released in 1983, was the first album by Metallica. It sold poorly on original release, but eventually reached #66 on the U.S. charts after the success of their Master of Puppets LP.
It remains one of the most influential heavy metal albums of all time.
Allmusic.com gave Kill ‘Em All a rare 5 star review:
The true birth of thrash. On Kill ‘Em All, Metallica fuses the intricate riffing of New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Diamond Head with the velocity of Motörhead and hardcore punk. James Hetfield’s highly technical rhythm guitar style drives most of the album, setting new standards of power, precision, and stamina. But really, the rest of the band is just as dexterous, playing with tightly controlled fury even at the most ridiculously fast tempos. … Frightening, awe-inspiring, and absolutely relentless, Kill ‘Em All is pure destructive power, executed with jaw-dropping levels of scientific precision.
