The first 10,000 copies include a "Metal Militia" insert.
Dave Mustaine gets a co-songwriting credit for "Ride the Lightning" and "The Call of Ktulu."
"For Whom the Bell Tolls" is titled after the book by Ernest Hemingway, and borrows its subject matter from one passage.
"Escape" is an early (and somewhat misplaced) attempt at commercial writing. Metallica did not perform this song live until 2012, when they performed the album in its entirety.
"Creeping Death" is lyrically about the biblical story of the plagues of Egypt.
"The Call of Ktulu" is titled after a H.P. Lovecraft story, although the original spelling is "Cthulhu".
Recorded and mixed at Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark during the spring of 1984.
Mastered at Frankford Wayne in New York City, New York.
