Metallica to celebrate Kill ‘Em All anniversary with Vans

2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of “Kill ‘Em All,” the debut album by Metallica.

The project features concert staples like “Seek & Destroy,” “Hit The Lights” and “Whiplash.”

Since its release, it has been certified 3x platinum by the RIAA, having sold over three million copies in the United States.

Now, there’s word that Metallica will mark the anniversary next spring by teaming up with Vans.

Kicks On Fire reports the ‘Kill ‘Em All’ Pack will consist of both the Vans Slip On and Sk8 Hi, with each one dressed in the hand and hammer design used for the cover art.

Done in Red, White and Black, the vibrant kicks will give anyone instant rock star status.

Rumors are that this won’t be the only album-inspired pack to be released under the Vans line.
