This loaded heavy metal t-shirt is chock full of Metallica cover art. The shirt has an all over print design on both sides that combines all of Metallica's first five albums.
The hammer and blood from Kill 'Em All is at the center of the graphic. Kill 'Em All was the groups debut album that went 3-time platinum after its release in 1983. The album released the singles "Whiplash" and "Jump in the Fire".
Next to the hammer is the bound and blind folded 'Lady Justice' from the cover of Metallica and Justice For All. The album was released in 1988 and became a 8-time platinum success bringing us the singles "Harvester of Sorrow", "Eye of the Beholder", and "One". This was the group's first full length album with bassists Jason Newsted after Cliff Burton passed away in 1986.
Slightly above, the shirt references the heavy metal band's 1991 Metallica album. Metallica was commonly known as the Black Album because the cover art was nothing but black and an image of a coiled snake as seen on this shirt. The Metallica album marked a change in the groups largely thrash metal style to a more contemporary, slower tempo metal sound. The adjustment in style had a mixed reception from critics. Fans still loved it, the album peaked at the top position in eight countries and went 16-time platinum.
Below and above the Snake from Metallica is the graveyard and God's hands from Metallica's Master of Puppets. Master of Puppets was the group's third studio album which released in 1986. This album released just before bassist Cliff Burton's death in a tragic bus accident during the album's promotional tour. The album was another success reaching a 6-time platinum status in Canada and peaking at 29th on the US Billboard Top 200.
The shirt references the groups second album Ride the Lightning with jagged lightning bolts hitting all over the printed graphic. This album was the group's second after Kill 'Em All, and showed Metallica's ability to mature musically. Bassist Cliff Burton worked to teach the basics of music theory to the band and took a significant role in the songwriting for the album. Metallica promoted the album on various tours including Monster of Rock and Day on the Green after the albums release.
This shirt is an Adult Extra Large.
