Seldom do Metallica CD's drop below £6/£7 so this is a great price for fans

Metallica turned the metal world on its ear with their debut album, KILL 'EM ALL and then blew its mind with the follow-up, RIDE THE LIGHTNING. The riffs and arrangements are more intricate, the lyrics are more intelligent and biting and James Hetfield's growl is meaner. The set starts out with two tunes that would have been right at home on KILL 'EM ALL, but the next two are slower and more involved. "Ride The Lightning" is a slow (by Metallica's standards) dirge about the futility of war. "Fade To Black" is a ballad (!) that builds to an instrumental coda featuring the guitar melodies that the band would later base their sound around. It's also Hetfield's first attempt at singing in tune. The most ambitious song is a dense instrumental, "The Call Of Ktulu", that starts with a single arpeggiated guitar and slowly adds layer upon layer, building in intensity until it all comes crashing down nine minutes later.

Ditto - Was actualy the first I'd seen them since 1992... Was superb! :thumbsup:My 12 year old nephew's 1st gig, he was well impressed too. Wonder if any of those big black beach balls they dropped at the end will wind up on Ebay? :-D

Heat added btw - I need to replace my copy of Master of Puppets too, so hopefully it'll be this price too someplace.

Hey pal, what sort of tattoo have you had done? Is it one of the more recent ones that James Hetfield has had done?
Im off to the o2 tonight to see the band, it'll be my Fifth 'Tallica Gig! :-D

It's the M Star. Got it on my left shoulder blade. I'm gutted that couldn't see them on this tour, tried for hours to get tickets for either Newcastle or Glasgow, but couldn't get any :(. Saw them at Leeds last year though and they were amazing, I caught one of James' plectrums as well :-D
