AUDIO: Metallica preview expanded reissue of Kill ‘Em All

Metallica are previewing remastered audio of “The Four Horsemen” from the forthcoming expanded reissue of 1983’s “Kill ‘Em All.”

Due April 15, multiple remastered versions of both “Kill ‘Em All” and 1984’s “Ride The Lightning” mark the launch of a massive catalog reissue campaign by the band.

Both projects will be available in three formats – CD, vinyl and as a limited edition deluxe box set that includes original source material from the band’s personal collection with many never before heard or seen recordings along with books including rare photos and essays from those who were there.

The deluxe numbered box set of “Kill ‘Em All” includes four vinyl records, five CDs, one DVD, a hardcover book including rare photos and a patch.

The remastered project has previously been previewed with a live performance of “Phantom Lord” recorded in Paris, France in 1984.

The group’s debut album, “Kill ‘Em All” – which features concert staples like “Hit The Lights”, “Seek & Destroy” and “Whiplash” – sold 17,000 copies in the US by the end of 1983 and finally surfaced on the US Billboard 200 in 1986 after the success of the band’s third release “Master Of Puppets.”

The debut eventually peaked at No. 120 on the Billboard album chart on its way to sales of more than 3 million in States by 1999.
