The triumphant debut of Metallica – whose reputation began to build even earlier, via a legendary demo tape that made the underground rounds in the metal community, along with their roof-blasting early live sets – and this astonishing first album showed that the hype was no joke! It's hard to imagine the move towards unrelenting heaviness in metal music ever could have happened without this and a handful of other early 80s masterpieces, and it still kills after all these years. Includes "Hit The Lights", "Motorbreath", "Jump In The Fire", "Anethesia – Pulling Teeth" and "Whiplash", "The Four Horseman", "Phantom Lord", "No Remorse" and "Metal Militia". LP, Vinyl record album

A pioneering UK metal masterpiece from Venom! Venom's debut Welcome To Hell emerged from the dark lord's abyss just a year earlier, and with this nearly as blistering second album, they pretty much established their uber-influential status as occult metal forbears. Neither album penetrated the mainstream consciousness at the time, at least not in the US, but their impact was huge – influencing Metallica and Slayer and paving the way for the heaviest of the heavy metal to come – but still with one cloven hoof firmly planted in rock and roll. Includes "Black Metal", "To Hell And Back", "Buried Alive", "Raise The Dead", "Leave Me In Hell", "Sacrifice", "Heavens On Fire", "Countess Bathory" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
