Read an Excerpt from Scott Ian’s Master of Puppets Reissue Essay
As you are no doubt aware, in November, Metallica will release a super-duper extra-special deluxe remastered edition of 1986’s Master of Puppets, which is the last Metallica album everyone who isn’t an asshole agrees was great. Depending on which version you buy, this super-duper extra-special deluxe remastered edition may include CDs, vinyl records, cassettes, DVDs, Blu-rays, 8-tracks, and mini-discs featuring not only the album itself, but also demos, live recordings, interviews, and a solid hour of Lars Ulrich passing gas after overinduling at White Castle, plus lithographs, pins, stickets, an iron brand, legal documentation allowing you to sign all your money away to James Hetfield, and book with photos, diagrams, blue prints, charts, and essays all about the album.
Okay I may be exaggerating slightly. But only slightly.
here. Hopefully the rest of Ian’s essay is way more interesting.
