it"s the best album iheard in my life

From: Scott Date: November 1, 2004 at 10:30
A great album! The one that started it all. I bought this record as a new release in high school and it ruled my life for a looooong time. Whiplash, Motorbreath, Seek & Destroy...this is as classic a thrash CD as you can get.

From: holy metal Date: November 5, 2004 at 9:41
The first metallica album and is awesome; kill em all super trash metal album!!! metallica rules!!!

From: Schdeffahn Date: December 10, 2004 at 3:38
It`s even much better than "St asshole"

From: viking king Date: January 3, 2005 at 21:50
this is a killer raw album it kicks ass

From: Greg Date: January 15, 2005 at 8:56
the video for "Whiplash" is the best, so much energy, if you have't seen it, take a peak!!

From: Jesse Date: February 7, 2005 at 15:25
Metallica's finest hour! This is what thrash metal should sound like. This CD earned itself a place in heavy metal history. This record spawned a generation of thrash clones and wannabees that all managed to become successful, while the truly talented thrashers stayed underground! (See Annihilator, Annacrusis, Watchtower, Dark Angel, Sadus, Ultimatum, Vengeance Rising, Deathrow, Accuser, Devastation, Whiplash, etc. )

From: gubi Date: February 18, 2005 at 17:52
Have you asked yourselves WHY this album was so good? That's all thanks the legendary musicman (he made all this stuff!)called DAVE MUSTAINE!!!!!!!!!! He's better alone than these 4 idiots that kicked him away. They really didn't deserve all the glory they had..

From: GLAM FAN Date: April 18, 2005 at 7:41
Motorhead or venom may have created thrash earlier but to be frank,metallica's kil em all help perfected speed metal and lay the ultimate gateway for other great speed(testament,sepultura,overkill) and death metal bands(morbid nagel,seven churches). It also lay the pathway fro the glorious ride the lightning and the invincible master of puppet. An essential album for any metalhead!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 30, 2005 at 10:09
Que carajos pasa aca, estamos ante otro clasico imprescindible del heavy metal y el disco que alzo un nuevo camino que fue el Trash Metal, entre mis 10 discos favoritos de esta movida, asi que por favor quiero ver mas comentarios o los hare pure, aca si tengo que expresar furia porque eso es lo que transmite el heavy metal, a diferencia del AOR.

From: EMI Date: April 30, 2005 at 11:25
Hola Rafo,kill em all es un disco puro y maca la referencia de este sonido pero el q de verdad rompio todos los esquemas fue sin lugar a dudas su obra suprema el MASTER ,recuedo q al escuchar aquel disco por primera vez todos los colegas exclamamos... DIOS, Y ESTO DE DONDE A SALIDO.

From: EMI Date: April 30, 2005 at 11:30
nos quejamos del giro de turca q los europe han dado a su estilo, pero creo q aun son muy muy validos sin embargo estos metallica creo q se han perdido ya para siempre , lo q hacen ahora es insoportable

From: Richierocker Date: May 6, 2005 at 22:47
They rewote a lot of Mustaines solos and some lyrics. I know Jmaes rewrote Jump in the fire becauseDave's wasnt that good. Also Kirk Hammett changed up the solos and from reports made them better and more melodic.

From: mustaine Date: May 11, 2005 at 23:48
hey lars you suck

From: Ulrich Date: May 12, 2005 at 16:07
Hey Dave, youre a Crackhead.

From: mustaine Date: May 16, 2005 at 23:32
hey metallica time to put a greatest hits cd and call it a day metallica once a great band now is shit

From: Bobby De Date: June 1, 2005 at 6:21
Phantom Lord, wow! I would of love to hear those lame kids at the MTV Metallica Icon do Phantom Lord than nu-load of sh***.

From: perry.k Date: June 30, 2005 at 2:44
This one is full of NWOBHM energy and that's why sounds like an atomic bomb!I just cant listen to this album by sitting in my armchair relaxing!10/10

From: starvin marvin Date: July 1, 2005 at 13:08
what a cd! this is the sort of stuff that has mase metallica gods, and this is the kinda shit that they need to try and reproduce instead of shit like st anger! the 4 hoursemen and am i evil favourites

From: mauricio Date: September 6, 2005 at 13:18
hi-from COSTARICA,uno de los primeros grandes discos de thrash metal de vanguardia americana,aunque tiene buenos temas le hacia falta madurar ya que los comienzos son siempre dificiles.apesar de que el disco tiene sus jaladas de pelo con respecto a la produccion. un clasico 10/10

From: juan carlos Date: December 13, 2006 at 16:15
Clásico de hecho pero lejos de sus dos grandes trabajos del 86 y 88. Bien novatos pero que desplegaron un Speed metal descomunal. Salvo ese mediocre canción llamada "Jump in the Fire" todas son imprescindibles. Mustaine tenía que irse si o si.. Ya viste el Cliff´em all supongo pues ese video es de los mejores que he visto.. Metallica en estado puro!! Cliff en "Pulling Teeth" se marca un solo mas que loco, impresionante. R.I.P Cliff!! 9/10

From: rockhardrock Date: August 26, 2010 at 5:47
there were(are) much more technically thrash metal bands, but still metallica moved thrash metal to almost mainstream popularity.this album is one of my favs of thrash metal subgenre. my favs: whiplash, the four horsemen and jump in the fire

From: pie75 Date: September 7, 2010 at 9:08
a great album better production then megath's debut but clearly you can hear dave's influence and sound all through this kirk was never a better guitarist then dave he's ok but more of a poser and half wit to boot but i love the four horseman,jump in the fire and seek and destroy

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 11, 2016 at 19:22
...And here is where the story begins...a band that has changed through the years,with right and wrong steps on its way but that undoubtebly has achieved the recognition deserved to be considered one of the best metal acts in the history of tracks for me in here are 1,4,6,7 & 8...simply a blasting Record...87/100

From: Doug Date: December 7, 2016 at 17:27
Listening to this today, you can hear the youthful energy of this great band.
