Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently hinted the band’s reissues version of 1986’s Master of Puppets, following its 30th anniversary last year. While many of us thought we spent enough on their recent North American trek, it’s time to empty those coin jars or do what you can to afford the reissue and box set for the acclaimed album, which will be released on November 10th via the band’s own Blackened Recordings.
The band shared the following details:
“Available in both physical and digital versions (digital available on November 10th), we’ve got several options for your Metalli-pleasure… CD, vinyl, 3-CD expanded edition and deluxe box set. The 3-CD set includes the remastered album, a disc that is a combination of rough mixes, demos and an interview, and a disc featuring a mix of live songs that are sequenced into a typical set list from the Damage, Inc. tour. The limited edition deluxe box set includes unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews and live tracks, many of which have never even been available in the collector or bootleg community and were pulled from our personal collections. There’s also a 108-page hardcover book with rare and never before seen photos and essays from those who were there with us for the wild ride. All in all, there are three LPs, ten CDs, a cassette, two DVDs, a lithograph with art by Pushead, a folder with handwritten lyrics, and if that isn’t enough to push you over the edge, we’ve also thrown in a set of six buttons (!).
Pre-order your copy now and we’ll send you a digital remastered version of “Disposable Heroes” while 3-CD and deluxe box pre-orders will also receive a download of “The Thing That Should Not Be” live at the Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL recorded on May 25, 1986. Several additional instant grats will be sent to all pre-orders between now and November 10th.
Deluxe box sets are limited edition collectors’ items, so get yours before they are gone! You may pre-order all the configurations at the Met Store now, available at your local record stores around the world on Friday, November 10th.”
