American metal was forever defined as everything before Master Of Puppets, and everything after. Where they had different sounds, I think Ride the Lightning started the Official Diamond mickey ugly christmas shirt. Maybe even Kill’em All.

I remember Metallica coming to Texas Taps & Records to sign autographs before their Master of Puppets concert. One of the best metal albums ever.
