Metallica - Master Of Puppets: Expanded Edition (3xCD + Booklet)
Embossed Expanded Edition of Master of Puppets includes 3 CDs featuring the newly remastered album + previously unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews & live tracks. Includes a 28-page booklet.
From its turbulent pace to thematically unified lyrics, complex arrangements to expertly controlled aggression, technical proficiency to uncompromising intensity, Metallica's Master of Puppets looms as one of the most quintessential metal statements. Mean, scary, fierce, and fearless, the 1986 album is the sound of Metallica coming into its own.
Themed around the abuse of power, Master of Puppets' songs are sonically complex, technically proficient and heavy - all played at maximum speed and intensity. From the explosive opener "Battery" through to the epic closer "Damage Inc," Master of Muppets is an onslaught of metal mastery. It would also serve as Metallica's last with founding bassist Cliff Burton, who died in a bus accident in Sweden while touring in support of the album.
