Discography Reviews: Metallica – Ride the Lightning

The beginning of Metallica’s increasing momentum was an inferno of raw brutal metal and style-forming songwriting. Around this time we’re talking about incomparable class right through and on Ride the Lightning some of the band’s greatest classics fight for our attention. The album kicks off with two of […]

Discography Reviews: Metallica – Master of Puppets

What I like best about Master of Puppets is the unconventional riffing.
