Metallica To Re-Record Debut Album

Metallica To Re-Record Debut Album

Metallica plan to re-record their entire debut album, Kill 'Em All, and release it under their own label, Blackened Recordings.

Kill 'Em All was originally released in 1983, and sold over three million copies in the USA alone.

The re-release, which is planned for late 2013, will aim to strengthen the classic tracks with modern production values.

One big difference between the two versions is that the re-recorded album may (emphasise MAY) be released under its predecessor's original, abandoned title: Metal Up Your Ass.

Another difference will be the absence of original bassist Cliff Burton, who was voted the ninth greatest bassist of all time by Rolling Stone readers.

Burton died in 1986 when the band's tour bus crashed.

The re-release of Kill 'Em All will be Metallica's second release under their new label, after the live DVD Quebec Magnetic.

For a double hit of Blackened Recordings, cast your eyes over this live version of 'Whiplash'.

The song is one of those that Metallica will re-record, while this particular performanance was featued on Quebec Magnetic.
