Tune in for the WPDH Album of the Week this Sunday at 11PM. We’ll be bringing you Metallica's ‘Ride the Lightning', in its entirety, start to finish.

Metallica released Ride the Lightning in July of 1984 on Megaforce Records. Two months after the album's release, Metallica signed a multi-year contract with Elektra Records and the album was reissued. Without any radio airplay, Ride the Lightning peaked at number 100 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and it has since gone 6 times platinum, after only an initial pressing of 75,000 copies were issued for the American market. Ride the Lightning is a favorite among music critics who have said that the album left a lasting impression on the genre.
