First Time Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction Has Been Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes: The Biggest-Selling Debut of All Time Has Never Sounded Livelier or Grittier
Right out of the gate Guns N' Roses' music was primal and gritty, with a solid hard, bluesy base; they were dark, sleazy, dirty, and honest – everything that good hard rock and heavy metal should be. While Slash and Izzy Stradlin ferociously spit out dueling guitar riffs worthy of Aerosmith or the Stones, Axl Rose screeched out his tales of sex, drugs, and apathy in the big city. Meanwhile, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler were a limber rhythm section who kept the music loose and powerful.
Following the group's 1985 formation, Guns N' Roses injected unbridled attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles, CA rock scene. The band certainly had the look and they definitely had the songs. They went on to captivate the entire world with the July 1987 release of their befittingly titled debut Appetite For Destruction, which yielded the indelible tracks "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Welcome To The Jungle," "Nightrain," "Paradise City" and "Mr. Brownstone" and remains the best-selling U.S. debut album ever, moving over 30 million copies globally.
Just over three decades later, Guns N' Roses' highly influential debut Appetite For Destruction gets its first ever album remaster from the original analog tapes!
