Kill 'Em All is Metallica's debut album, and it is the cornerstone of what would be named soon after speed metal or thrash metal. Prior to July 25, 1983, no album had shown such an outpouring of energy, violence and extremes, right up to the album art. Initially entitled Metal Up Your Ass (rejected by the Megaforce label), the cover was going to feature a hand holding a dagger coming out of a toilet bowl. In the end, it featured a pool of blood with a hammer next to it and a hand trying to grab it. In both cases, the message is quite clear. 


The album opens with the hyper-rapid Hit the Lights, featuring a heady riff and wild bawling, with a punk touch in the execution as well as in the sound. Everything is too fast, too loud, like on Motorbreath, a song straight from hell with razor-sharp drums. The record also contains Seek and Destroy, the band's first real classic, as a tribute to the bands so loved by Lars Ulrich (drums) and James Hetfield (guitar/vocals), Diamond Head and Saxon. On steroids, of course. Kill 'Em All also has Dave Mustaine to thank, the guitarist who was fired from the band a few days before going into the studio and replaced by Kirk Hammett. The future leader of Megadeth was indeed the composer of four tracks on the album. A multitude of bands (Slayer, Exodus, Anthrax to name but a few) would follow in Metallica's footsteps after this release that would lead the Four Horsemen to the pantheon of metal. © Maxime Archambaud/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.

Know Your Lemmy

On 24th December 2017, Lemmy Kilmister would have celebrated his 72nd birthday, and therefore more than forty years at the head of Motörhead, the noisiest rock ‘n’ roll band in history. Rapid onset cancer finally felled the one who had become an icon that many believed to be immortal, given how many times his death was announced and then refuted. Motörhead, which logically ended with him, therefore lived for four decades through all the ups, downs and misunderstandings…
