The masters of thrash metal, Metallica, introduced themselves to the world in 1983 with the landmark debut, 'Kill 'Em All.'

Much like the record's album art, 'Kill 'Em All' hammers 10 classic tracks into the brain of the listener, boggling the senses with 'Seek & Destroy,' 'Whiplash,' 'Jump in the Fire,' 'Hit the Lights' and many more. The team of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Cliff Burton and Kirk Hammett are listed as the quartet who recorded 'Kill 'Em All,' although former member and current Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was given due credit for his various contributions.
