Metallica launch The Four Horsemen remaster

Metallica have streamed the remastered version of classic track The Four Horsemen, taken from the upcoming deluxe edition of debut album Kill ‘Em All.

The 1983 record and its follow-up, Ride The Lighting, are to be launched in limited-edition multi-disc box sets on April 15, to tie in with Record Store Day.

The packs also include pictures from the band’s personal archives, along with detailed articles written by people who witnessed the albums being made.

Meanwhile, Metallica have revealed the cover art for the live album they recorded at the Bataclan in Paris in 2003. It’s also released on Record Store Day, with proceeds to be donated to the victims of the terrorist massacre at the venue in November.

Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite, Metallica! features nine tracks and it’s part of the band’s commitment as this year’s RSD ambassadors. Lars Ulrich recently said: “Independent record stores are part of Metallica’s DNA – they’ve been pivotal in shaping each one of us into the music fanatics we’ve all become.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
