Kill 'Em All

Redirected from Kill Em All

Kill 'Em All is a seminal heavy metal album by thrash band Metallica, released in 1983. Often said to be the first example of thrash music, Kill 'Em All fuses heavy metal and hardcore punk, resulting in a symphonic and rhythmically diverse sound.

When Dave Mustaine formed Megadeth, he recorded an alternate version of "The Four Horsemen" called "Mechanix", from Killing Is My Business.

An early re-issue of the album by Elektra Records added the songs "Blitzkrieg" and "Am I Evil?".

Kill 'Em All peaked at #120 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, but not until 1988 (see 1988 in music)..
