Metallica - Kill 'Em All: Wikipedia Album Entry
Kill 'Em All is the first studio album by the American Thrash band 'Metallica'. Some of the songs were written by a different line-up than the musicians that played the songs in the studio. It was recorded at Music America Studios, Rochester, New York. It was released by Megaforce on July 29 1983 and later rereleased by Elektra records.
Before Kill 'Em All was recorded the songs were written and recorded on demo's by James Hetfield, Lloyd Grant, Ron McGovney and Lars Ulrich. On later demo's featuring the first full tracks that would appear on Kill 'Em All, Dave Mustaine took Lloyd's place and Ron was replaced by Cliff Burton. Mustaine was kicked from the band for having a bad attitude and was replaced by the final Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett. With this final line-up Kill 'Em All was recorded.
The album features a lot of Metallica's remarkable thrash songs such as: Seek And Destroy, Whiplash and The Four Horsemen. Unlike the later albums, Kill 'Em All didn't have any Symphonic sounds or instruments supporting the tracks.
First title for the album was Metal Up Your Ass and it has a different cover artwork (hand with a dagger sticking out from WC). Megaforce permissed it. The title Kill Em All was what Cliff Burton said after the record company rejected the original Metal Up Your Ass cover. "Just fuckin' kill 'em all" were his exact words.

No life 'til leather
Gonna kick some ass tonight
Got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
By the last breath of the fourth winds blow
Better raise your ears
The sound of hooves knock at your door
Adrenaline starts to flow
Thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Scanning the scene in the city tonight
We're looking for you to start up a fight
Sound is ripping through your ears
The deafening sound of metal nears
Your body's waiting for his whips
The taste of leather on your lips
No mercy for what we are doing
No thought to even what we have done
We don't need to feel the sorrow
No remorse for the helpless one
Living and dying, laughing and crying
Once you have seen it, you will never be the same
Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
Hard and it's heavy, it's dirty and mean
Thunder and lightning, the Gods take revenge
Victims of fury are cowardly now
Running for safety
Down in the depths of my fiery home
Summons bell will chime
Tempting you and all the earth
Join our sinful kind
Late at night all systems go
You have come to see the show
We do our best you're the rest
You make it real you know
