About this deal

Make no mistake, this is a great, highly ambitious album that certainly has its moments, but as the follow up to Kill Em All, it is rather underwhelming.

Metallica’s second album, 'Ride The Lightning' (1984), will be pressed on 180g ‘Electric Blue’ limited edition coloured vinyl, featuring the 2016 remastered audio.For Whom the Bell Tolls" sounds dangerously close to power metal, and it tests my patience considerably, though the riffs are awesome!

Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description.Unfortunately, the quality control at the Pallas GmbH pressing plant doesn’t seem to be as good as it used to be. International products have separate terms, are sold from abroad and may differ from local products, including fit, age ratings, and language of product, labeling or instructions. UMR/Mercury are pressing 11 of Metallica's studio album back catalogue on custom coloured vinyl for the first time for World ex North America; following the 2021 Walmart exclusive coloured vinyl series in the US.

Ride the Lightning received a positive response from music critics, who saw it as a more ambitious effort than its predecessor. I don’t understand some of the negative feedback Chalkys get - I have never had any problem and would absolutely recommend them. The band performed at major music festivals such as Monsters of Rock and Day on the Green later that year. Metallica’s second album, Ride The Lightning (1984), will be pressed on 180g ‘Electric Blue’ limited edition coloured vinyl, featuring the 2016 remastered audio. The sleeve and cover are both sort of wrecked, and the record is cracked through the first two songs, but it still plays pretty nice!

This reissued record from Metallica should need no introduction if you are in any way interested in thrash metal. This was partly because bassist Cliff Burton introduced the basics of music theory to the rest of the band and had more input in the songwriting. I notice it most on Fate to Black, there seems to be some strange harmonics during the clean tone/acoustic guitars on the Walmart version. So, trying to figure out the difference between this silver label version and the gray label version that was released 3 days later, according to Discogs. Hetfield himself is also responsible for bringing down his own riffs by trying to sing like Rob Halford.Metallica promoted the album on the Bang That Head That Doesn't Bang European tour in late 1984, and on its North American leg in the first half of 1985.
