Description

Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition red vinyl U.S. pressing of Kill ‘Em All, the first album by Metallica.

About this copy: This copy of Kill ‘Em All is a 2021 pressing on the Blackened label of an album that was originally released in 1983 on the Megaforce label.

This limited edition pressing on “fire engine red vinyl” was sold exclusively through Walmart stores in the United States.  These pressings were quite limited and the album sold out in just a few days.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears, or holes.  There is a bend in the upper right-hand corner.

There is a hype sticker on the wrap that says, “Limited Edition Exclusive Jump in the Fire Engine Red vinyl.”

A nice copy of a terrific LP.

Background:

In early 2021, a limited number of colored vinyl pressings of six different Metallica albums were sold through Walmart, a U.S. retailer.

The albums were:

  • Kill ‘Em All (red vinyl)
  • Ride the Lightning (blue vinyl)
  • Master of Puppets (red vinyl)
  • …And Justice for All (green vinyl)
  • Metallica, aka “The Black Album,” (black marbled vinyl)
  • Hardwired to Self-Destruct (orange vinyl)

With the exception of the black marbled vinyl Metallica LP, all sold out immediately.

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.
