Album Description:

RIDE THE LIGHTNING is the second studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on July 27, 1984 through the independent record label Megaforce Records and was re-released on November 19, 1984 by Elektra Records. RIDE THE LIGHTNING was certified gold by the RIAA on November 5, 1987 and was most recently certified 5x platinum on June 9, 2003. 

The set starts out with two tunes that would have been right at home on KILL ''EM ALL, but the next two are slower and more involved. "Ride The Lightning" is a slow (by Metallica''s standards) dirge about the futility of war. "Fade To Black" is a ballad (!) that builds to an instrumental coda featuring the guitar melodies that the band would later base their sound around. It''s also Hetfield''s first attempt at singing in tune. The most ambitious song is a dense, instrumental, "The Call Of Ktulu," that starts with a single arpeggiated guitar and slowly adds layer upon layer, building in intensity until it all comes crashing down nine minutes later.

Overall, RIDE THE LIGHTNING continues to retain the speed of the band''s debut KILL ''EM ALL on songs like "Trapped Under Ice" and "Fight Fire with Fire", only with more complex riffs and arrangements, while offering more intelligent lyrics sang with James Hetfield''s lot meaner growl.

Metallica turned the metal world on its ear with their first album, KILL ''EM ALL and then with the follow-up, RIDE THE LIGHTNING, blew its mind away! 

RIDE THE LIGHTNING is the last Metallica album to credit former member, Dave Mustaine.

Recorded at Sweet Silence Studios, Copenhagen, Denmark in Spring 1984.
