Metallica Masters of Vinyl
As promised, June will see the re-release of Master Of Puppets on vinyl . . . the retro summer continues! Following on the heels of Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning, we dusted off the masters and MOP will come out in the same formats - a single disc at 33 rpm and a deluxe two disc version on 180 gram vinyl spinning at 45 rpm. Look for Master on vinyl to hit the Metallica.com Store and your friendly local record shop on June 17th, 2008 in North America and damn close to that date in the rest of the world. You know the drill . . . we'll keep you posted here! And for those still following along, yes, Justice is up next . . . probably some time in August.
