Metallica is releasing Master of Puppets in epic box set form in honor of the iconic album’s 31st anniversary on November 10th via its own Blackened Recordings. It features the album fully remastered “for the most advanced sound quality” and features a bevy of extras, including unreleased demos, rough mixes, Jason Newsted’s demo tape, interviews, live recordings, a 108-page hardcover book featuring never before seen photos, outtakes and previously unreleased interviews, and a loads more! No word yet on the …And Justice For All box set featuring Jason Newsted’s bass stems, but we’ll let you know if that ever materializes. In the meantime, watch frontman James Hetfield unbox this beast…
And listen to the freshly remastered version of “Disposable Heroes”:
As well as “The Thing That Should Not Be,” recorded at Chicago’s very own Aragon Ballroom back in the day:
We still have a few months before Circa Survive‘s December 7th show at the Aragon with Thrice, but thankfully the band has released a new video to hold us over. It’s for the title track from the band’s forthcoming album, The Amulet (which comes out September 22nd), and you can watch it right here!
Noisey has a series going called 1997: The Year Emo Broke, and today filed a lengthy tribute to The Promise Ring‘s breakthrough record, Nothing Feels Good. Check it out if you’re bored, or even if you’re not!
Chicago’s Mucca Pazza plays marching band-style jams with a punk rock swagger, and the large group has a new video that you can check out right here, people!
Get yourself that Queens of the Stone Age goodness.
