Metallica - Ride The Lightning
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Metallica released their second record in 1984. Ride The Lightning expanded on the typical thrash metal sound, incorporating acoustic guitars and more complex harmonies. Highlights include "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "Fade To Black", and "Creeping Death".
Ride the Lightning is often hailed by fans as a classic of the thrash metal genre, and a vital bridge between the band's albums Kill 'Em All and Master of Puppets, pushing the thrash metal of the debut into progressive territory more fully-realized on Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All.
The album retains the speed of Kill 'Em All on songs like "Trapped Under Ice" and "Fight Fire with Fire," but also contains the first of Metallica's longer, more symphonically arranged tracks, such as "Fade to Black" and the nearly 9-minute closing instrumental "The Call of Ktulu."
