A little over a year ago, we proudly reissued our first two albums remastered for the most advanced sound quality possible along with special deluxe editions including previously unreleased audio and video recordings. We promised to give that love to the entire catalog, and we’re back today with all the details about the release of Master of Puppets, coming to your favorite music retailer and Metallica.com on November 10th.
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.
