Metallica’s Remastered “Master of Puppets” Box Set Features Cliff Burton Interviews, Jason Newsted Auditions

Metallica: Master of Puppets Deluxe Box Set

31 years after its release, Metallica is paying tribute to their iconic Master of Puppets with an incredible reissue box set. The band’s third album has been remastered for sound quality in CD, vinyl, and digital formats. An expansive deluxe box set includes the album in several formats and much more with three vinyl records (with a MP3 Download Card), ten CDs, two DVDs, one cassette, a hardcover book including never-before-seen photos, a folder containing handwritten lyrics, a set of six buttons and a “Damage, Inc.” lithograph.

Master of Puppets, which is often cited as their best, is the final album to feature bass legend Cliff Burton, who was killed in a bus crash just months after its release. Part of the bonus material in the box set includes live recordings as well as previously unreleased interviews with the bassist. It also has recordings of Jason Newsted’s audition with the band.

The remastered Master of Puppets is available on CD, 3 CD Expanded Edition, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3), and a deluxe box set.
