Metallica's infamous "No Life Til Leather" demo had been circulating for about a year, and their debut album was eagerly anticipated. Kill 'Em All did not disappoint. With the NWOBHM dying out, other new bands from several countries took up the slack. All nine of the bands featured here debuted in 1983, thus there was great hope for long careers for these bands. The long-term results, as one can see, are mixed.
