Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 108
ORIGIN: San Francisco, CA (United States)
TITLE: Garage Inc.
LABEL: Vertigo Records
GENRE: Thrash Metal/Heavy Metal
FAVORITE SONG: "Blitzkrieg"
NOTES: This is the double album of covers that Metallica put out. The first disc is new recordings of songs by artists as diverse as Diamond Head, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Blue Oyster Cult. There were a couple of very good tracks there and it lead to me checking out Misfits, Diamond Head, and Mercyful Fate. Of course the second disc is the highlight here with the covers Metallica had recorded over the course of their career to that point. The music was generally more raw and faster.
