No Life 'til Leather

As we celebrate Record Store Day with the release of No Life 'Til Leather on cassette (now sold out), we thought we'd take it old-school with special deals on merchandise from this era.

No Life 'til Leather

This year we decided to celebrate Record Store Day with our friends at independent retail by taking a huge leap back in time to our humble beginnings with that little rectangle of plastic known as the "demo tape." In 1982 we recorded seven songs that became our initial calling card known as No Life 'til Leather and it led us to our first record deal . . . the rest, as you some of you may know, is history! On Record Store Day, April 18th that demo tape will be available as a limited edition cassette (yes, cassette!!) at your favorite neighborhood record store and Metallica.com.

New Arrivals

Here at HQ, we have been working hard to bring you new items (and some old favorites) for your everyday life, and to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Fade To Green

31 Years ago today, on February 20, 1984 - Metallica went into Sweet Silence Studios to start recording Ride the Lightning, and finished recording just before St Patrick's Day.

Pick up your Whiskey In The Jar - mason style jars, and celebrate St. Patrick's Day and the recording of Ride The Lightning in 'Tallica-style!
