Metallica Reissues Their First Two Albums

The legendary rock band, Metallica, recently announced that they’re going to reissue their first two albums Kill ‘Em All (1983) and Ride The Lightning (1984) on April 15.  These releases may not be new albums, but they’re still a great buy for any ultimate Metallica fan!

Metallica took to Facebook and said, “A while back you may remember that we reached out to you for a little help as we began putting together reissues of both “Kill ‘Em All” and “Ride the Lightning.” We are psyched to announce that the releases you’ve been helping us assemble will finally be hitting the streets on Friday, April 15 just in time for Record Store Day!”

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
