  1. Great episode guys! I had not heard most of those demos before and you guys filled in alot of blanks in Metallica history that I never knew. Dave, I think you might be the only person I know that was in on Metallica that early. My exposure to them came in Spring 84 from an older "sketchy" metal fan in the smoking area at high school (yes, they used to exist). "Dude, if you like REAL metal..." Anyway, he made a cassette for me with Kill Em All on one side and Ride The Lightning on the other. The instant attraction for me was that "percussive" crunch in the guitar sound and attack that you guys described. Then I told 2 friends, and so on... and so on. I can't remember any other band that hooked people from the first listen like Metallica. I vividly remember playing it for like 4 friends who had never heard it and jaws literally dropped. For me, Lightning is their high point and in particular Creeping Death. IMO, it is one of the top 3 metal songs of all time, just a perfect song. Never gets old!
