In other news regarding Metallica, fans recently took to social media to reflect upon one of the group’s most iconic albums – ‘Master of Puppets.’ One fan noted: “[The album] sounds great, it’s like I’m hearing things in the tracks I’ve never heard before, and with more impact. Improved sonics all the way around the sound spectrum for sure. And the included extras are like icing on the cake. The demos tracks CD and the live tracks CD (all performances taken from the Damage, INC tour) are all quite listenable.”
The fan continued: “The twenty-minute long interview with Cliff Burton was interesting to listen to but also sad since he is no longer with us. He seemed low-key and down to earth. He talks about how he was still living with his parents, etc. And looking through the included pictures, you really get a sense of how young all band members still were at the time of the album’s release.” Metallica bassist unloads on bad Dave Mustaine ripoff.
