Metallica Hoping To Release Deluxe “Master Of Puppets” This Year


Though a firm timetable has yet to be set, Metallica have been working on the expanded reissue of their 1986 album “Master Of Puppets“. A recent interview with Voir found drummer Lars Ulrich stating that it would either arrive late this year or early next year. He stated:

“It should be coming maybe later… We’ll try to see if we can get it out at the end of this year. It’s coming soon. We’re working on it. There’s a lot of stuff associated with ‘Master Of Puppets‘; that’s a big project. And we’ve spent so much time looking forward, with ‘Hardwired‘ and so on, but ‘Master Of Puppets‘ is obviously next. Hopefully late this year. If not, soon thereafter.”

Since gaining the rights to their master recordings and forming their own label Blackened Recordings, the band have been chronologically re-releasing dexlue editions of their catalog.
