Metallica has shared a previously unreleased demo version of its classic song "Master Of Puppets." The track was recorded in the garage at The Carlson House in El Cerrito, California in late June 1985 and is taken from the upcoming reissue of the band's seminal third album, also titled Master Of Puppets and originally issued in 1986.
The Master Of Puppets reissue will arrive on November 10th. The LP has been remastered for the most advanced sound quality and will be available in various physical configurations, including Standard LP, Standard CD, three-CD Expanded Edition, and Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set. It will also be available digitally as a Standard CD, a three-CD Expanded Edition and a Digital Deluxe Box Set.
- Bonus content in the set will range from previously unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews and live tracks to a 108-page hardcover book, DVDs, handwritten lyrics and more.
- The reissue is available for pre-order at Metallica.com and fans who pre-order the standard album will receive an instant download of "Disposable Heroes (Remastered)." Those who pre-order the expanded or deluxe editions will receive an instant download of "Disposable Heroes (Remastered)" and "The Thing That Should Not Be (Live at the Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL - May 25th, 1986)."
- Metallica is hitting the road in Europe this month and plays London on Sunday (October 22nd).
