METALLICA today announced that they will reissue their first two albums, 1983’s “Kill ‘Em All” and 1984’s “Ride The Lightning”, on April 15. Both albums have been remastered for the most advanced sound quality and will be available in three formats — CD, vinyl, and deluxe box set. Both deluxe box sets include original source material from the band’s personal collection with many never-before- heard-or-seen recordings, along with a book 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 deluxe book including rare photos and a patch while the deluxe numbered box set of “Ride The Lightning” includes four vinyl records, six CDs, one DVD, a deluxe book including more of those unseen photos, a mini-book of lyrics handwritten by James Hetfield and a set of three posters. The deluxe box sets are limited-edition collectors’ items.
