30 years on, we go behind the scenes of the incredible rise to prominence that preceded the arrival of Master Of Puppets, stepping inside the Metalli-Mansion for a special look at life inside Metallica as they were in 1985 – a young, hungry bunch of renegades ready to fight, fuck and drink their way through metal’s ranks. From recording MOP to touring Ride The Lightning and making their Donington debut, we recall their year that was through the band themselves and the people around them that witnessed the carnage firsthand.

Plus, we head to Tokyo to witness BABYMETAL rock 30,000 maniacs into the stratosphere, get inside the mind of rock’s most controversial 21st century icon, FALLING IN REVERSE mainman Ronnie Radke, explore the amazing story behind the arrival of metal’s biggest ever supergroup, TEENAGE TIME KILLER.

Plus we:

  • Get in the studio with NIGHTWISH * Sneak into the house of KORN’s Jonathan Davis * Ask PERIPHERY if their 2-disc progtacular is a step too far * Get the A-Z of PAPA ROACH * Watch SLIPKNOT tear apart Dublin
