Today we celebrate the 30th anniversary of RIDE THE LIGHTNING. Released on 27th of July 1984. The second release of the pioneers of thrash metal band, Metallica. It renders that which people at the time didn’t see it coming; The dynamics of the sound which surpassed expctations from Kill ‘Em All and who didn’t know that thrash and metal in general could go that far. The heaviness of riffs and the thick blasting sound of Lars’ snare gives you a tease of how big it sounds. It truly embarked Metallica a metal machine and became unstoppable.
