According to Blabbermouth, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has revealed that a dispute over songwriting credits may have contributed to the shelving of the Metallica’s 1982 demo tape, “No Life ‘Til Leather”.
There was a dispute between Dave Mustaine and Lars Ulrich because Dave says that Lars wanted credit on two songs, which Mustaine wrote every note and word to. He said on Twitter:
“James [Hetfield] contacted me 2 years ago. We were going to officially release the “No Life Till Leather” demo as a record, w/27 tracks, pics, the whole enchilada.
And the talks broke down because Lars [Ulrich] wanted credit on two songs I wrote every note and word to. I have the texts. I passed.”
“No Life ‘Til Leather” was released as a limited-edition cassette for Record Store Day in April 2015, available exclusively in independent record stores.
Track Listing Of “No Life ‘Til Leather”:
