Also, on the first 2 albums, Metallica used Marshall amps. Kill em All is a modded Marshall JMP 2203 (basically a JCM800). That amp got stolen, so on Ride they used stock JMP's with a tubescreamer, which James hated saying that all of the distortion should come from the amp. On these albums it sounds like they use plenty of mids, at least half way up or so. Old Marshalls sound weird with the mids all the way down. The black album and on is lots of different amps/settings.
