NLTL cover (record store day)
I made this, in case anyone didn't want to use the other cover that came w/ the rerelease of No Life Till Leather

(Transparent Blackened logo [c] of Lilith from the MetalliChicks forums)

NLTL & Blackened Recordings is [c] of Metallica

-yes it's a cut out, but you all can do with it as you wish, just be sure to press the download button to make the image larger-

& now the Article of why NLTL is being rereleased

METALLICA will celebrate this year's "Record Store Day" with the release of an exact duplication of the band's 1982 demo tape "No Life 'Til Leather" as a limited-edition cassette on April 18. The artwork was made from METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich's own copy and will feature his handwriting.

Says METALLICA in a statement: "In 1982 we recorded seven songs that became our initial calling card known as 'No Life 'Til Leather', and it led us to our first record deal. Tthe rest, as you some of you may know, is history!

"On Record Store Day, April 18th that demo tape will be available as a limited-edition cassette (yes, cassette!!) at your favorite neighborhood record store and

"We've been digging through the archives, gone to the original source material and re-mastered it to maximize the sound potential for 2015 without altering the original mixes in any way.

"Recorded with the first line-up of the band that appeared live as METALLICA, 'No Life 'Til Leather' has never been commercially available until now. Look for expanded versions coming on CD, vinyl and a collector's set sometime this summer.

"We hope you enjoy this little walk down memory lane with us and that you will continue to join us in supporting independent record stores around the world. Visit for a list of independent retail stores taking part in Record Store Day."

"No Life 'Til Leather" was recorded on July 6, 1982 at Chateau East Studio, Tustin, California and it features the following tracks:

01. Hit The Lights
02. The Mechanix
03. Motorbreath
04. Seek & Destroy
05. Metal Militia
06. Jump In The Fire
07. Phantom Lord

"No Life 'Til Leather" recording lineup:

James Hetfield - lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Lars Ulrich - drums
Dave Mustaine - lead guitar
Ron McGovney - bass

Speaking to about "No Life 'Til Leather", Ulrich said: "It's time for us to put out some next-level reissues and do the song and dance of the catalog that everyone else has done; the U2s and the LED ZEPPELINs and the OASISes. Instead of starting with 'Kill 'Em All' in 1983, we figured we'd go back another two years to when the band was formed in 1981."

He continued: "This is the second demo that we made and circulated. I sat in my bedroom and wrote on the J cards and went to the post office and sent it around to all the tape collectors around the world. Now, 20, 30 years later, it has become synonymous with the pre-'Kill 'Em All' era."

Posting something Record Store day related cover art Tomarrow (it's also a collab) keep ur eyes peeled ;)

A Thrash In Time II Ch 3/Pt 4

(The last time where we left Clare [grn-up] & the gang off.... Everyone was going to A&M studios to record The $5.98 EP Garage Days Re Re-Visited & then Cliff had something he had to tell Roadie ................ The rest you'll have to figure out on your own....... Enjoy the story>>>>>)

-July, 9th 1987.... Castro Valley, Ca-

Young Rob: Com'on guys, we need to go!!!!

Young Lars: Be right there Rob, Roadie...are you and Cliff coming?

Roadie: Nah, that's ok dude we'll be....

Cliff: Go ahead Amber, I'll take care of Clare

Roadie: Are you sure?....I'll have Rob take over my job for me when...

Cliff: It's ok.... We'll be fine

Roadie: Thank you (kisses Cliff)

Everyone: Awwwwww

Clare [grn-up]: (facepalm) Fucking really everyone

Cliff & Roadie: Ok guys shut up

Young Jason: Sorry!!!

Cliff: (rolls his eyes & shakes head) Anyway before you go, I have something to tell you .... Without everyone seeing it

Korey: Soooo Clare what do you think your parents are doing now as we wait hmmmm?

Clare [grn-up]: Ohhh butt out Korey, all we need to do is to wait & see

-Meanwhile inside the house-

Roadie: Alright, Cliff....what's going on? (Grins) ........ Are you quitting the band for awhile, just so you can spend time with Clare?

Cliff: Yes, also I need a break from the road and stay home as well

Roadie: but what about the bass playing thou?

Cliff: I'll think about it.... But not around nap time

Roadie: (laughs)


Young Kirk: Hey Roadie.....we're going to leave you behind

Roadie: I'd better go.....I'll see you both later

Cliff: I have one more thing (goes down one knee) Amber Roadstein, will you marry me?

Korey: yes, Yes, YES!!!!!!!!

Clare [grn-up]: Korey please, calm down (laughs) my mom hasn't said a word yet & besides you are not one of those shampoo girls that you always see on TV

Korey: Well I can dream can't i?

(Well this will be the answer that I was hoping my mom will say.....)

Roadie: Yes

(FUCK YEA!!!!!!! -Moshes to whiplash-

Myles: Is Clare moshing again?

Nikki: Yes

Korey: (joins Clare [grn-up] ) WHOOOHOOO!!!!

Nikki: Wait for me Kor ........ Hey Myles want to join?

Myles: sure

Nikki: (gives Myles a piggyback ride)


-meanwhile at A&M studios.....when The Small Hours was just being recorded.......-

Rob, Roadie, Nikki & Korey: (headbanging)

Clare [grn-up]: (focuses at Young James in a fangirly way & smiles)

Young James: "Look out at the darkness, and you will see. Just call my name and I'll be there.
You cannot touch me, you would not dare. I'am the chill that's in the air."

Nikki: (looks at Clare [grn-up] & Young James) Clare, you & I need to talk!!!!

(Outside the studio.....)

Clare [grn-up]: Ok Nikki what's the hold up, Korey having you all worked up again?

Nikki: No, it's you & your new boyfriend you've been seeing lately over the past few months......or days.....damn it I lost track

Clare [grn-up]: Hey, it was your idea to come back in the first place Nikki

Nikki: Yea.....only to visit.....NOT to hook up with anybody...........Clare I have my fair share of guys believe me .......oh & get this......even if I'm not around you & Korey
I fantasize about Dave Mustane having sex with me

Clare [grn-up]: how often?

Nikki: allllllllllllllll the way since high school

Clare [grn-up]: you did not!!!!

Nikki: Yep I did & I even dated a guy that looked like him from the 80's as well

Clare [grn-up]: you are one lucky bitch, but a good kind too

Nikki: so are you, you have the greatest gig known to human kind, you are a intergalactic royal who kicks ass, a daughter of one of the best bass players on earth & a best friend anybody could ask for....... You've always been there for me since kindergarten & Korey helped us with everything when he came along, through the rough times, the sad times, & even the silly thank you for every thing

Both of them: (hugging)

Clare [grn-up]: soooooo now what?

Nikki: after that being said & done ........ Back to the other subject......& which comes to this objective

Clare [grn-up]: you want to bet, do you?

Nikki: It's also a dare as well, .......I dare you ..... to have sex

Clare [grn-up]: with James?

Nikki: Yep, I know you're a virgin Clare

Clare [grn-up]: (playfully hits Nikki) shut the fuck up & yes it's because I haven't dated anyone before, what's the bet, dare or whatever it is?

Nikki: need to give Hetfield the 'ol bedroom eyes like the groupies always do, plus if your folks are not in the room as sexy as you want to be, whatever the place, time, month, whatever.....just make it work..........let's say $100.00

Clare [grn-up]: Hmmmmm....... I don't know Nikki, what if I lose & save my virginity?

Nikki: I'm guessing we have to fess up to Lars, papa het & your folks when we get back & I'm keeping the $100.00

Clare [grn-up]: -sigh- Deal

Both of them: (shake hands)


Roadie: soooooo what did you girls talk about?

Clare [grn-up] & Nikki: stuff......just normal stuff
