Metallica - Metal Up Your Ass LIVE 1982(Remastered)
Revolver' s ICON Series pays tribute to the heavy-music titans that have created a legacy of iconic imagery that defines our music, our culture, our lifestyle. For each ICON merchandise collection, the Revolver team has curated quintessential pieces that represent watershed albums, songs and events that define the metal experience. All ICON merchandise is officially licensed and of the highest quality. The debut collection in our ICON Series is from one of the biggest and baddest metal bands to ever roam the earth: Metallica. Explore the collection now , and read on for the story behind the iconic cover image of Kill 'Em All , as well as the album title and artwork that wasn't: Metal Up Your Ass. Not only did the pioneering thrash-metal band have to replace wayward lead guitarist Dave Mustaine shortly before the May recording sessions for their debut LP - Kirk Hammett, plucked from Exodus, only had a week to learn all of the material - but they also had to contend with pesky ghosts the studio they recorded at was haunted and unsympathetic recording engineers who actually locked the band out of their own mixing sessions. And adding insult to injury, the band was forced to scrap their original album title and cover art concept at the last minute.
Metallica's then-manager Jonny Zazula, who was preparing to release the album on his own Megaforce label, broke the bad news to the band; as the owner of a record store, he understood that an independently-released album called Metal Up Your Ass wouldn't stand a chance in the retail environment of the time.
And we ran the real risk of not having our product stocked," Ulrich explained in Wal-Mart or any of what they call rack-jobbers, they wouldn't touch the record. Compromise wasn't a popular word in the Metallica camp, least of all with bassist Cliff Burton. Fuck those fuckers, man, those fucking record outlet people. Just, we should just kill 'em all!
Zazula had enlisted photographer Gary L. Heard to do the front cover of the album as well as the band portrait on the back, and Metallica informed Heard of their new title as soon as they arrived at his studio. Heard took Burton's idea and ran with it, shooting a shadowy hand dropping a hammer in a pool of blood on a white tile floor.
The resulting image, combined with a stark but powerful layout by designers Harold and Shari Risch, made for an attention-grabbing package. And though still unquestionably violent, Kill 'Em All 's title and cover were apparently palatable enough for retail chains to sell.
That wasn't the end of the line for Metal Up Your Assthough. The fact that they'd even considered it as a title for their first album helped to further bolster Metallica's metal cred, and it soon became a popular bit of trivia, especially among metalheads looking to one-up each other. Stephen Gorman's killer toilet thankfully hasn't faded into obscurity, either. Inthe band released a three-quarter-sleeve baseball T-shirt with Gorman's original MUYA artwork, which quickly became a sought-after collectable.
It since been reissued and bootlegged many times over, and is still considered one of the greatest and most controversial metal T-shirt designs ever unleashed. Skip to main content. Metallica' James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, Other editions. Enlarge cover.

Jan 28, Stephen Gorman's "Metal Up Your Ass" artwork As the band saw it, the title Metal Up Your Ass - especially when paired with Stephen Gorman's irreverently graphic artwork (which wasn't quite as gnarly as Ulrich's description) - would serve as both a come-on and a warning, attracting real metal fans everywhere while repelling the posers. Metal up Your Ass was recorded on November 29, , at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. The support band was Exodus, featuring Metallica's soon-to-be lead guitarist Kirk Hammett. The band played all their original material (nine songs) that they had written up to that point, which included all.

Jun 20, Heather rated it it was amazing. Yes you should read this series Ok um I hate doing reviews NOT because they aren't well deserved but because I don't know what to say other then I liked the book and others should read it and of coarse I'm lazy lol.
I tend to write to the author not the reader. Also I never review a bad book as I can't bear to be rude when an author tried but I personally didn't enjoy it though others might. After the author notes I was left no choice so here's another well deserved 5 star review.
Pandora is Yes you should read this series Pandora is scary after all!
So this book is a collaboration and both author are amazing. If you see the name Michael Anderle or Michael Todd his name for this series then you defiantly need to read the book! He's my favorite author and really an amazingly nice person who takes times to respond to fans via Facebook which I totally appreciate when I had questions.
He finds the best indie authors ever to work with just like in this series! Jun 17, Linda rated it it was amazing.

Demon Battles and Heart This is a great series! The characters are well written and feel like family. Katie and her demon Pandora keep the book alive with their inner dialogue. There is humor, action, demon battles, and heart.
The characters care for one another and want to rid society of the demons. I have been really enjoying this series, it is not my normal genre, but I cannot stop! I have become as addicted to it as the the Klowns are to bad soap operas. Thank you Mr. Todd for an escape from Demon Battles and Heart This is a great series!
Todd for an escape from reality that is action packed, has the feeling of family, and uses humor and heart to keep readers involved! Feb 22, Tony Hisgett rated it liked it Shelves: paranormalreview. This was an enjoyable read, although I thought it was quite a low key story until the end of the book. There were a few minor fights and the usual banter between Katie and Pandora. There was also a lot of planning from the two high level demons TChezz and Moloch, but this didnt lead to anything, I presume this is setting up some action for a future book.
After finishing the book I read the reviews on Goodreads and was convinced I had read a different book. It was a decent read, but where did all This was an enjoyable read, although I thought it was quite a low key story until the end of the book. It was a decent read, but where did all the 5 star reviews come from? View 1 comment. Jun 16, Nolly Sepulveda rated it it was amazing. Awesome I am really enjoying this series!
The interactions between Katie and Pandora are hilarious and sweet especially now that there is more of an acceptance with their bond of Human and Demon. I like how the other members have grown as well, like Joshua, Stephanie and even Ella.
Jan 24, Veronica rated it it was amazing. Moving onwards and upwards The team settle into their new home, work together, and forge closer bonds with each other. We see more of Charlotte and Ella in a show of girl power, and watch some of the 72 demons scheming to take over our planet.
There are more laughs, more battles, and more tears. We see light to offset the dark.

Most importantly of all, there is hope. What is there to live for if not love, family, and hope? May 03, Persnickety rated it it was amazing. Wahoos and oh cruds Kindle Unlimited - Thank you! This one sure did read really fast. The annoyance meter is about to be pretty maxed out relative to a certain colonel. She needs a d attitude adjustment. But not so sure she'd make it Just a thought. To heck with unsolicited testimonials and fandom!
Indie authors should ought to get paid for product placement? Jan 20, Debbie Gill rated it it was amazing.
Metal up you ass
Another great adventure I have read the first six books in 2 days. I have laughed and cried. There are few errors that the editors missed, but that's ok, these stories are written for the audience, not analysis in a Masters of the English Language course. There is a fantastic Bethany Anne reference for those who have read that series. I love some of the names of characters. Dolt gets my vote for best named character. Jun 22, Tammy J. Williams rated it it was amazing.
Great Read The first book in this series caught my interest enough to read the second book. Now I'm addicted to the series! Can't wait to read the next book which is happening right after I finish this review.
When a book makes you laugh, then cry, then makes you want to jump into your kindle to help them fight the fight to help them save the one's they love and try to protect This is a great read!
Jul 13, Jim Guldner rated it it was amazing. For Pandora Like the authors notes being written by characters. Had done this with other books, but it allows a certain level of snarkiness and joy to come thru. Looking forward to the next book. Glad to see the beginning of respect and linking of military and mercenary, as in this series, especially when you read or listen to the poem at the end, you understand they fight for the rights of all of us.
