Long story short if you’re not familiar, we all have Megaforce Records founders Jon “Jonny Z” and Marsha Zazula to thank for the advent of thrash metal. Among Megaforce Records’ classic releases (Anthrax, Mercyful Fate, Testament, etc.) are Metallica’s 1983 debut album Kill ‘Em All and 1984 follow-up Ride The Lightning before the band left for Elektra Records to release Master Of Puppets in 1986. Marsha sadly passed away in January 2021, and Jonny Z in February 2022.
