Phantom Lord (Hetfield/Ulrich/Mustaine)

The song "Phantom Lord" is probably the most musically mature song on the "Kill 'Em All" album which hints at where the band's sound would head.

Their first demo "No Life 'Till Leather" included that song.

Kill 'Em All

The two Phantom Lords:
James' third band before Metallica was called "Phantom Lord" so maybe James liked that band name so much that he decided to write a same titled song.

The covers:
Anthrax covered "Phantom Lord" for the "ECW: Extreme music" album.

The subject matter:
This song is written about the war cry of a mythical heavy metal creature.
