3 stars Metallica - 'Kill 'Em All' 3.5 stars

I do not consider Metallica prog, or related to the genre at all. If it was for proto purposes, I would say Mercyful Fate or King Diamond should be handed the title, but regardless, Metallica is here and I will rate their albums without bias. I was never a fan of this band, metal just didn't agree with me growing up, until I heard Dream Theater. Anywho, Metallica did create some classics that anybody should enjoy.

This is the most thrashy and speediest of the bunch, and that makes this one of my favorites. The speedy rhythm's of James Hetfield and speedy solos by Kirk Hammett nail the classic Metallica sound from the very first song put on record. While it sometimes gets redundant, well a lot, there are some tracks on here that stand out completely as thoughtful and 'cool'

'Seek and Destroy', 'Anesthesia', 'Jump in the Fire' and 'No Remorse' each have some special qualities that the other six didn't have which led them all to sounding pretty similar in nature.

I dub this album to be a very good one. A great start for someone to get into early Metallica (is there anybody out there?) and for curiosity as to how this band was started.
