Kids who claim to be Metallica fans but think the Black Album is their debut album are ignorant because Kill 'em All is their first album.

A metallica album from July 1983. A favorite to the thrash crowd and any one that has good taste in music.

A short, brusque, unambiguous phrase uttered softly or screamed aloud during moments of stressful or joyous rage. A determined, unequivocal statement of purposeful and intentional violence, leading to both necessary hell-bent ferocity and cathartic happy resolution.

Metallica's first and best album.

Heavily influenced by Venom and Motorhead but took it up another notch with the superior guitar soloing of former Exodus guitarist Kirk Hammett.

Reworks demos from 1981's Hit the Lights 7-inch and 1982's No Life Til Leather (featuring Dave Mustaine on lead guitars/lead vocals) and vastly improves on their song structure.

Song list found in another prior UD definition. All songs are raw and not overproduced - the opposite of every Metallica album afterwards.

Originally released on Megaforce Records in May 1983.
Kill Em All is clearly the only Metallica album that doesn't suck and is still enjoyable in the present tense.

The black kids in my high school (late 1980s) thought Kill Em All had something to do with killing black people, which is totally stupid and false.

A common fan phrase describing a tendency for talented writers (those in anime, of all people) to wipe out a large score of fictional characters.

It can be done to show the horrors of war, for the purpose of keeping the viewer ratings up, or to explore the theme of human nature. The Kill 'em All can be done in a variety of styles:

- a systematic fashion with one-at-a-time i.e. 'Wolf's Rain',

- 3 thirds of the main characters i.e. 'Zeta Gundam',

- or more extremely, the entire cast of the series + all life in the universe + the fabric of the universe itself i.e. 'Space Runaway Ideon'

There's also the Bolivian Army ending, which usually features two survivors of an entire group fighting overwhelming odds. The story would then cut off without showing whether they died or not.

The heavyweight champion of this phrase is non-other than Yoshiyuki Tomino of Gundam, whose bouts of depression is sole reason for the slaughter of many heroes and villains in his mecha anime.
When Yoshiyuki Tomino smiles you know it's going to end in disaster. He's about to do a Kill 'Em All on the Federation and Zeon.
