Metallica have released a demo of their classic track Master Of Puppets.
It was recorded in the garage of The Carlson House, El Cerrito, California, in late June 1985 and has been taken from the band’s upcoming Master Of Puppets box set, which arrives on November 10 via their Blackened Recordings label.
It’ll be available in various formats, with a limited edition deluxe box set containing 10 CDs, two vinyl LPs, two DVDs and a cassette, along with 108-page hardback book, lithograph, folder with handwritten lyrics and six button badges – and is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
Metallica are about to embark on the European leg of their WorldWired tour in support of latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.
Those dates will get under way in London on October 22, with a pop-up shop selling Metallica merchandise opening its doors from October 18 - October 23 at 45 Charlotte Road, London.
