Metallica have announced they are re-releasing their seminal album 'Master Of Puppets' on November 10 via their own label Blackened Recordings.
Metallica are re-releasing their third studio album 'Master Of Puppets' on November 10.
The reissue of the classic 1986 metal record will feature unreleased material including demos, rough mixes, videos and live tracks, including a new version of 'Disposable Heroes' and a live recording of 'The Thing That Should Not Be'.
The LP was the band's first record to go platinum and ended up going 6 x platinum in the US.
'Master Of Puppets' was the last studio release the band recorded with late bass player Cliff Burton, who was in the band from 1982 until his death in September 1986.
He said: ''There are so many things associated with 'Master Of Puppets' - it is an immense project.
'''Master Of Puppets' seemed to be the culmination of the journey that had started four or five years before with James and I getting together, writing some songs, Kirk and Cliff joining, and that lineup settling.''
Fans can get their hands on the reissue in a range of formats including Standard LP, Standard CD, 3 CD Expanded Edition, and the Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set.
