Metallica Master Of Puppets: Deluxe Vinyl 3LP + 10CD + 2 DVD + 1 Cassette Box Set

Deluxe Numbered Box Set featuring 3 x 180g LPs, 10 CDs, 2 DVDs, Cassette, 108-Page Hardcover Book, Handwritten Lyrics, 6 Buttons & Damage, Inc. Lithograph

Following remastered reissues and special deluxe editions of their first two albums in 2016 on their own Blackened Recordings, Metallica honors their promise to give that same love to their entire catalog starting with their landmark third album Master of Puppets. Newly remastered for the most advanced sound quality, it will be available in multiple formats including this Deluxe 3LP + 10CD + 2DVD + Cassette Box Set which in addition to the 2017 remaster 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, a lithograph with art by Pushead, a folder with handwritten lyrics, and six buttons.

From its turbulent pace and thematically unified lyrics, to its complex arrangements and expertly controlled aggression, to its technical proficiency and uncompromising intensity, Master of Puppets looms large as one of the most quintessential metal statements. Frightening and fearless, the 1986 masterpiece is the sound of Metallica coming into its own.

Themed around the abuse of power, the songs are sonically superior and and heavy as hell - all played at maximum speed. From explosive opener "Battery" through to 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.

Master of Puppets became the first Metallica album to be certified Platinum by the RIAA. The album has subsequently been certified 6x Platinum in the United States alone and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. In 2016, the album became the first metal album to be added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress, an honor granted to works deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
