Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of Metallica's 1983 debut album. Kill 'Em All is regarded as a groundbreaking album for thrash metal because of its precise musicianship, which fuses New Wave of British Heavy Metal riffs with hardcore punk tempos. Its musical approach and lyrics were markedly different from rock's mainstream of the early ‘80s and inspired a number of bands who followed in similar manner. Metallica is easily one of the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rockstar games of metal musicians during the early '80s. They expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions.

Formed in 1991,Rage Against the Machineopened the gates of a new boundary, obliterating rock-rap musical alliance with the band's literate and politically-charged debut album. Driven by Tom Morello's unmistakable guitar wallop and vocalist Zack de la Rocha's salient bulletins from the front,Rage Against the Machinebecame a critical and commercial success, selling millions of copies around the world while attaining legendary status among alt-rock fans. To this day the album, and the band, remain standard-bearers for uncompromising incendiary rock. Remastered180g vinylreproduction of the original LP.

Legendary 18x Platinum Debut from Axl Rose, Slash, and Co. One of Most Raw, Exciting Rock Albums in History: 1987's Appetite for DestructionIncludes "Sweet Child O' Mine"
One of the most prolific debut albums of all time, and a record that changed the face of music, Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destructionis a revelatory portrait of the gritty underground of Los Angeles from one of the most notorious bands in history and still sounds as raw and dangerous as ever. The blistering guitar interplay ofSlashandIzzy Stradlinprovides the ultimate backdrop forAxl Rose's signature rasp. From "Paradise City" to "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle," the record brims with a brutal integrity that without question will always stand as the predominate document of the band's ever-growing legend. Reissued here on 180g vinyl LP for the first time in two decades.

Arguably their finest album, this follow-up toOpiateshowcasesToolat their best, assisted by clean, crisp production. Edgy guitar riffs are complemented by spitting, heavy bass, especially on 'Sober' and 'Crawl Away'. Lyrically, Tool are at their vitriolic best, targeting religious hypocrisy ('Intolerance,' 'Sober'; always a popular theme), the loss of innocence and its consequences ('Prison Sex'), and deliberate ignorance ('Swamp Song'). Henry Rollins makes a guest appearance on 'Bottom,' which, along with '4 Degrees,' deals with questions of identity.Undertowis also Tool's most musically adventurous album, with considerably more sophistication than their previous work. Very highly recommended.
As one of the Big Four of thrash, Anthrax helped usher in a style of metal that not only dominated throughout the '80s, but yielded the template for metal to come. Yet while their Big Four counterparts (Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer) were West Coast acts, Anthraxformed in New York City. It's a distinction that set them apart from their peers and the group remains the most notable East Coast metal act of the era, infusing their music with some distinctly New York sensibilities – not least a CBGB-indebted punk intensity. On top of that, Anthrax's grip on melody meant that, for all their aggression and astounding precision speed playing, they also wrote unavoidably hook-laden songs, making them a unique proposition among the thrash metal elite. 1993's Gold-certified Sound of White Noiseserved as the group's first with vocalistJohn Bush(Armored Saint) and last with longtime lead guitarist Dan Spitz. Produced with Dave Jerden (Jane's Addiction, Alice In Chains), the equally melodic and menacing affair debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 charts on the strength of the powerful singles "Only," "Room for One More," "Black Lodge" and "Hy Pro Glo."
Limited double 180 gm vinyl LP pressing with six page insert. KORN is the eponymous debut studio album by the American Nu-Metal band Korn. It was released in 1994, right after the band toured with Biohazard and House of Pain. The album's themes mainly consisted of both drug and child abuse. 'Korn' was well received by music critics. The band stormed the alternative scene virtually overnight, and is said to have established Nu-Metal. Bands like Coal Chamber and Limp Bizkit were inspired by the album's rage, emphasizing similar grooves and song structures, including some Hip Hop elements. Slipknot, Machine Head, and Sepultura were also inspired by the album. The album launched the career of record producer Ross Robinson.. a little more than a year after release, the album went Gold in the United States. The album spawned 4 singles; 'Blind', followed by 'Need To', 'Shoots and Ladders' and 'Clown'.
Black Sabbath's classic 1971 album Master of Reality is arguably the heaviest release of the band's legendary career, and certainly one of the most influential. Features the proto-metal gems "Sweet Leaf" and "Children of the Grave."
Writing about the record for his book about the album, Mountain Goats leader John Darnielle remarked that Master of Reality "has maintained remarkable historical status over several generations; it's a touchstone..." Indeed. Black Sabbath pull no punches here, and turn in an absolute masterpiece.

1973's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is the fifth studio album from British heavy metal icons Black Sabbath, and follow-up to Vol. 4 which was released the year prior. Produced by the band and Tom Allom and recorded at Morgan Studios in London in September 1973, the adventurous 8-song set finds the group expanding upon their slow, crunching signature style and implementing synthesizers, keyboards, and strings to go along with more complex orchestral arrangements. It ultimately results in unprecedented and emboldened material like the masterpieces "A National Acrobat" and "Killing Yourself to Live." For the first time in their career, the band began to receive favorable reviews in the mainstream press, with Rolling Stone calling the album "an extraordinarily gripping affair," and "nothing less than a complete success." It marked the band's fifth consecutive platinum selling album in the United States.

Talk about flying high again. Originally released in 1981, Diary Of A Madman isOzzy Osbourne's sophomore solo smash and, sadly, the final studio album on which virtuoso guitarist Randy Rhoads appeared. A perfect foil for Osbourne's creativity and an inimitable instrumentalist, Rhoads died in a plane crash in 1982 just as he and Osbourne were redefinining hard rock and mainstream heavy metal.
Branching further into classicist fields and expanding the sonic palette, Diary of a Madmanepitomizes musical chemistry, raw skill, and dark moodiness. Osbourneand Rhoads light up every song here, and it's no wonder many of the tunes--"Flying High Again," "Believer," "Over the Mountain"--remain part of the iconic vocalist's concert set list.
This 30th Anniversary Edition presents the LP in definitive sonics. Mastered from the original master tapes and featuring all of the original performances, and housed in a gatefold jacket,Diary of a Madmanis an essential rock document. Any guitar fan needs to own this and Osbourne's breakthrough solo debut, Blizzard of Ozz, which also doubles as Rhoads'premier.

Music On Vinyl release. Replicating the magic of Guns N' Roses, Appetite for Destruction, Black Sabbath and Metallica, White Zombie has, in this major debut album, already begun to pave the path for the future of heavy metal. Their rhythms are complex, their riffs intense. They're a powerhouse of loud and proud. Vocalist Rob Zombie intrigues in shock value, and here he packs it in: these songs are about muscle cars, sleazy encounters, and a glorified trash culture. Songs include brash manifestos such as "Soul Crusher," indulgent macabre such as "Spiderbaby (Yeah-Yeah-Yeah)," and the sexually charged "Thrust!" This album is a celebratory act for the lover of the lewd-pressed on 180-gram vinyl and including a color insert with lyrics.
